I am dedicating this post to my family and the Beach family. Years ago, together we took a road trip to the East Coast of Canada. The two families required two cars involving much switching of seats and beds. It was one of the most memorable trips we ever did with young kids. At the time, I was insistent that we see one of the remaining working light houses in Nova Scotia. My own two were of the age where this was just another of Mum's crazy ideas. As we drove to the coast in the failing light, a song came on the radio and to me it was just a bit of magic as so much of our East Coast is connected with fabulous music. To this day, there are still "mocking" comments made from the "backbenchers", but now I'm sure they have remembered.
Today, one of our most renowned Canadian artists passed away. As I played this youtube prior to posting, I remembered that trip so well, and the impact of going down in the mines. I hope my kids do too.
