Tonight

Tonight I braved the dark clouds
ignoring the heavy air
I needed to walk
let go steam accumulated during the day
I needed to recharge my batteries
even if only for a short while.
What a phenomenal show I assisted
without even knowing it's theme,
I stood under a thin falling rain for a second
 then suddenly the world in front of me
just with an invisible wang by an angel
started it's magnificent sundown imaginable.
The seagulls stopped their running flights and landed
and kept looking as if they too were stunned by the
sudden change.....

Emotions




Light and Shadows ....
reflections of one's life.

Summer is slowly dying

Summer is stretching itself,
nights are breezy and cool,
children have started school
my life is like this leaf awaiting
for the white fluffy snow to 
come and gently caress my face
and put colors in my cheek.

I'm loosing a lot

Like a tree full of leaves
when the wind blows
it looses it's beauty for
a determined lifespan.
I loose much more,
I'm loosing my youth
and heading straight to
old age.......

I am free


Let me fly on my own terms,
I am a survivor
and I can take good care
of myself...
Do not cry for me,
I shall roam the seven seas,
my spirit is free and with no
frontiers....

Saying


 Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass...
It's about learning how to dance in the rain.

Saying from a famous author (I believe it's Camus).

Never play with fire....

I look and don't see,
I smell and I choke,
I feel water on my toes but they are not wet,
I shiver and it's hot,
I cry but the sky is clear,
I know the feeling of being helpless
in front of nature when it's on fire
from shear stupidity of mankind....

Uncertain Future...

This shot was taken last evening on the shores
of Lake St-Louis end of Lachine - beginning of Dorval. 
It was sad to see this person talking on the phone
enumerating all his fears if the PQ would win.
I did not ask his name but stood there and said to myself,
what in the world will happen to us who went through
all these emotions if the PQ wins again. 
I managed to survive in early 1960 when M.Levesque
started his movement because I was young and stupid,
I did not follow the long line of exodus.
In the mid 1976 when PQ won,
I was a parent and did not have energy or
courage to leave my parents behind so I toughed it out.
In 1995 my children were almost adults
& could not force them out of their native province. 
Why should I with my white hair have to go through
another period of turbulence and uncertainty,
see more exodus of friends, relatives
and maybe my own grandaughters.....
So I just packed my camera, walked back to the car
and just resigned said to myself:
"May the good winds help us all".
