Word for the Coming Week: ENDING

We will use this word to reflect on as we walk, run or roll through our week.

Some words may inspire you with exciting new insights while others may disturb your thinking or challenge your beliefs. Sometimes you will love or take comfort in what you are hearing, while other times you may feel discomfort or resistance. Pay attention to all as this is part of your journey.

Are We There Yet?

This week's journey has us continuing through northern Ontario and into Quebec.  We travel south on route 11 past the communities of Iroquois Falls and Timmins then onto route 101 before crossing into Quebec.  From there we zig-zag north east until we hit route 113 passing the towns of Sainte-Germaine-Boulé (population 900), La Morandière and Aiguebelle National Park.  From there we travel south on route 167 past Chibougamau and Saint-Félicien where we meet up with route 172 which we take until we get to the St. Lawrence River.  From there it's a short journey to our stopping point for this week, Forestville and Baie-Laval.  - I was surprised with the lack of English on some of these community Websites.

  1. Good morning, I was so excited to see the world after a long awaited rain. So here is what surprised me- the grass that was cut very short is still brown and the longer grass appears to be greener. My logic is that a blade of grass collects rain and directs it to the root, just like a glass of water. The rain falling on the ground goes everywhere’s like drinking from a fountain. (My opinion early morning, by noon that could change. )

    The raindrops were still on the leaves of the trees and bushes , as the sun hit the raindrops it sparkled like twinkle lights. Beauty! My walk was very still except at one property -the man was up early ,playing music in his workshop, talking to his dog, he was refreshed by the rain!! ( my versions)

    Speaking of beauty you should plan to listen to Tim Timmons from Timmons – his music is on U-Tube.

  2. No walk today, it rained most of the day. The day got busy and i ran out of time! I missed the walk, I missed the time to think about my day, my week and plan for the tasks to complete. The word ENDING is a good word because it means I have completed one more task. Pam
