Beauty and death

I was saddened to hear of the construction worker who died of his injuries from falling off the Canada Place sails in Vancouver. I watched the workers in August, appearing as ants against the massive white sail structure they were repairing. I have the greatest respect for workers who could do that kind of job so high off the ground, exposed to the elements, and often in plain view of a crowd of tourists. The photos below show the scale of their work. RIP.

So lovely to receive your visit. I see you're writing about your family here. You don't mind if I pull a chair and sit for a while?

p.s. How did you find me?

Your are so very welcome here! Thanks for pulling up a chair. I'll offer you a virtual espresso. :)

I think my journey to your blog started with a blog I usually read (I don't remember which one now) and clicking on links from commenters or similar blogs until I discover something I like. And I loved your story. I could read a book's worth!
