Good Citizens

This week we celebrate both Canada Day and Independence Day. As a multinational I am lucky to have ties to different parts of the globe but consider myself a citizen of the larger community of Earth and enjoy celebrating the best of all the nations.

“Patriotism is not short, frenzied outbursts of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.” Adlai E. Stevenson

Photo was taken on a hill overlooking Saint John New Brunswick and true to form, was a bit overcast that day.

“If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a good citizen of the world.” Francis Bacon

This photo was taken at Snug Harbor (Duxbury) with a disposable camera on a very foggy morning.
If I had of been framing up the picture today, more of the flag might have gotten included. What I was taking the picture of was the Harbor Master’s office, where I worked for one of the best summers of my life. My current office does not provide anything like those kinds of views.
If you are into crafts and home decor Kari and Kijsa are hosting an on line flag waving party here.
