Aurora Borealis

A new family member!

My brother's family (the ones with Ms Thang and Lil'Dude) lost their pup to cancer back on February 14. It took a while to mourn the loss.

This week, there have been negotiations and I'm pleased to say a new little soul is coming to join our extended family. She's a French Mastiff - yup, she'll be big - and currently lives in Missouri.

Towards the end of September, she will be flown up here to join us. That is a part of the story I don't want to know anything about. 10 years of working in logistics and coordinating the delivery of live animals has made me somewhat jittery, but I know that I'm just being overcautious.

Her name? There have been many thrown's gone from fantasy-laden names like Eowyn to mundane names like Daisy. Getting a whole family to agree is not an easy task. The other night though, the words "Aurora" kept coming up for them every where they looked. Be it the name of a town, a random word, or of course the Aurora Borealis.

Auri will be a very welcome addition to our family and I can't wait for her arrival.

Vancouver, British Columbia
A patriotic Canadian full of visions of a better Canada, random thoughts and a lot of hot air. Who am I? A struggling writer and photographer trapped in a corporate buyer's body. Steel shopping by day, and freeflowing prose by night. One day I hope to have the nights become my days, but am intimidated by the sheer amount of people who share my dream. So I read. A lot. I learn. A lot. I push myself. A lot. The world is a small place, and getting smaller every day. I'm proud to have friends in every corner of the earth, and abide by the old adage that there are no strangers, only friends we haven't met yet.
