Victoria Day 1954
This image of my mother and brother from 1954 made me realize how much Canada has changed in 60 years. We were definitely a British outpost in those days and Victoria Day was the only day we had fireworks.
Somehow or another over the years we, (politely), shed our colonial identity, got our own flag and now celebrate Canada Day with fireworks.
But we'll never give up our Victoria Day/ 24th of May long week-end!!!
Be like asking us to give up the maple syrup or hockey!
Anyway I'm just not making it to my blog - or yours very often these days. I'm not sick or depressed or anything like that, just busy doing art & other stuff..
I'm on a semi-temporary leave of absence I guess you'd say... ...
