If we were having coffee I’d let you know that my schedule is getting busier and that I won’t be around as much for the rest of the month.
I’d tell you not to worry, everything’s fine; it’s just that I have a few school and work deadlines coming up, so I won’t have as much time to take pictures or to write, but I’ll still put up a few posts, and I will be around to check in on what everyone is up to, whenever I can.
Our weekends are filling up with some fun activities over the next few weeks as well. We have our yearly family curling get-together coming up, and I’m really starting to get pumped about our upcoming night at the Ice-Hotel.
Yeah we’re just crazy enough to find something like that really exciting. And I can promise you I’ll be bringing along my camera, tripod, extra batteries and memory cards, along with ALL of my lenses for that!
Hopefully this will all be enough of a distraction to keep my mind off of how depressingly long this winter has been, and how much I regret that we weren’t able to take a week’s vacation down south somewhere.
On the positive side, the days are starting to get noticeably longer, so the warmer weather isn’t too far off.
If we were having coffee I’d ask you for your opinion on this big decision here in Canada from our Supreme Court that stuck down a federal law making Doctor-assisted suicide illegal.
The legal challenge to the law has been quietly moving its way through our court system for a few years now. But even though this is a hot-button topic in many countries, the media has pretty much ignored it; preferring instead to report on more sensational topics. I guess barbaric acts of terrorism get better ratings than a serious heartfelt debate about how to safely and humanely allow the terminally ill to die with dignity.
In any case, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. I wonder if the current government, which only has eight months left on their latest mandate, will try to put together legislation to properly control and manage how, when, and under what circumstances people can choose to end their lives, or whether they’ll just leave it until after the fall election.
If we were having coffee I’d apologize for bringing up such a downer of a subject and promise to have more positive stuff to talk about next time 🙂
