Olympics come to the Fort
My daughter and I went to see the torch run; it passed within a block of home. Interesting to see how many people are excited about this but also sad to see how much security there was. Six RCMP officers running beside the flame, as if it was the president, looking for the guy who wants to make a point by attacking the poor civilian carrying it. What a world. It gives me lots of fodder for my writing though. Every day I see something or talk to someone which somehow ends up on the page, coming at just the right time for what I am doing. That is what amazes me about this process. Inspiration comes where it is needed, right when it is needed.
