After a looooong hiatus, I’m back to muse. Today, my heart is shining clear and bright for Calgary and the surrounding area due to the cresting of its rivers. I live in the rainiest city in Canada, yet have not experienced a flood so when I see and hear about the stories coming out of Alberta, it is truly extraordinary. The people of Alberta have stepped up and bandied together around their mayor (who, in my opinion, is a rockstar) and neighbours and communities to take care of each other. They are inspiring.
This flood, though, shows that this really is the year of the black water snake…bite.
