Our Calgary friends are shaking their heads and asking, why did you come back?
In a few weeks, the snow will stop falling, the bulbs will bloom, the trees will bud and the birds will return. We will pack away our snow boots and skis, pull out our bikes and hiking boots forgetting the long, cold, snowy winter. We will hike and cycle and swim and float and run outdoors barefoot.
And when the snow first flies in October, we will run around excitedly with our arms outstretched catching the flakes in our palms!
