Was just thinking back to an Ideas on CBC episode that I heard over a year ago. Whoever was speaking was talking about how every major religion begins with the welcoming of a stranger. That's it. When I heard it, it blew my mind. I thought, that's the gold standard of how we are doing as human beings in this world.
I'm grateful to live in a town where there really is so much generosity. I walked into the farmers market and the first thing I saw was a table of people collecting donations for the Syrian refugee families that will be arriving here. So many people doing good things.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Whatever. Here's to a welcoming and generous new year.
Lots of Love. Anna (Hope I won't regret this post in the morning.)

Patch is a beautiful little shop on Robie st. in the North end of Halifax. It is filled with pretty things.
Edie grew up in Purcell's Cove and used to secretly meet up with her boyfriend in the North end back in the seventies (against her parents' wishes). Apparently, there were no trendy restaurants in that part of town back then. It was so fun to walk around with her and hear her stories. Loved this skinny little house. I can now say that there is an area of Halifax that has stolen my heart. The North end appeals to my inner, shallow, trendy self.
We had dinner at this incredible restaurant called, Agricola st. Brasserie. Oh my Lord, that was good. Really good. Everything. The atmosphere, all the beautiful people with beautiful hair, the meal, the deserts.... Sometimes you have to splurge. But, like I said in my last post, this was actually a tax deductible business meal, exchanging millinery techniques, suppliers, visions of the hat future, etc., ahem, cough, cough....
After filling up on my dose of city life, we headed back to Edie's place for the night and in the morning set out on our next adventure. Part three tomorrow.

So, on Thursday when I happened to hit the wall and was ready to go hide in a cabin in the woods for some time, my wise husband suggested I give Edie a call. Edie, want to run away with me?........Of course I do. You see, a kindred spirit.
I'll post more from our adventure tomorrow.
