The Other Mad Island – A Little Thanksgiving

October 15, 2012

In Prince Edward Island people run out of house to be proud of – there’s so much pride in house, lot, road, hood, that it spills out the sides of everywhere. Behold above the sign posted at at the perimeter of the Charlottetown neighbourhood where my mother finds herself. I made my way there from Guernsey Cove early every morning, thanks to the goodwill of a good friend who ferried me along with himself. On this jetlaggy Sunday afternoon in London W14, allow me to share his commute, rife with autumn leaves, ferrous furrows, inlets, old homesteads, red barns, hilly hills, cute cows and rustly corn. As J says, it changes week by week let alone moment by moment thus keeps itself ever compelling. Experience if you will some of our 45 minutes each way, of NPR, yakking, coffee for him, snapping by me. (The dashboard bobblehead is from Hawaii. Go Barack…)
