….of views, news, & muse….

A bird’s eye view of Vancouver!

By now you’ve likely heard the news that it’s looking like a minority government for the UK, in a very similar situation to our recent British Columbia provincial election!

Let  there be muse:

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. ~Winston Churchill

Our political institutions work remarkably well. They are designed to clang against each other. The noise is democracy at work. ~Michael Novak

Democracy is like a raft: It won’t sink, but you will always have your feet wet. ~Russell B. Long

Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage. ~H.L. Mencken

Cheers to a Fine Friday & weekend that sings—electing for some fantastic days!

…Tuesday muse…

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference -The Road Not Taken, Robert Frost

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain. -Emily Dickinson

Cheers to a Tuesday of inspiration!……
