I've moved on from Eastern Passage to Sackville, Nova Scotia.
New gardens to make and trails to explore.
Thanks for tagging along.

Missing someone I never met ...
Woke up this morning to the sound of John Lennon singing.
The CBC Martime Morning show was marking the 30th anniversary* of John Lennon's death.
The songs were wonderful to hear and made me want to haul out a Beatles record to listen to more of John, Paul, George and Ringo who had been so much a part of my life.
I was 14 in 1964. Talk about lucky ! I recall seeing them for the first time over the course of three consecutive weeks on "The Ed Sullivan Show". I screamed myself senseless when I saw them at Maple Leaf Gardens. I watched "Hard Day's Night" 12 times ! Each successive record album would be an adventure as their style and message changed and they brought us along for the the ride.
And what a ride it was !
The rebellious and cheeky John, challenged our views and made us think.
