“BC park a finalist for National Geographic Travel Award”…”Ten of the Best Clocks in Pictures”…

A noteworthy headline tells of a national park at the edge of the Haida Gwaii archipelago is in the running for a National Geographic travel award.

Gwaii Haanas is up for a World Legacy award in a category called Sense of Place.

Anyone who’s been there will agree with the park’s superintendent who says “temperate rainforests, abundant sea life and cultural treasures such as totem poles offer a glimpse of the Haida way of life and make the park unique.”

According to organizers, the awards seek to “recognize protection of historical monuments, archaeological sites, cultural events, indigenous heritage and artistic traditions.”

Cheers to “Sense of Place”….time & space…

As North America returns to standard time this weekend, what better time to highlight some unique clocks!…

Cree Proverb

Realize that we as human beings have been put on this earth for only a short time and that we must use this time to gain wisdom, knowledge, respect and the understanding for all human beings since we are all relatives.

Whatever’s on your plate for a fine final October 2014 Thursday, wherever you are, may you have a keen sense of place, take your time, and give yourself some space!
