February 12, 2016 — Leave a comment

As I continue to catch up on these weekly posts before taking a break from them, I published one featuring the cherry blossom trees of Vancouver. If you missed it, please read, Scenes of Sakura, Plum and Cherry Blossoms of Vancouver. I really hope you enjoy it. Now, please join me on my photos of the week posted to social media, one week behind edition.


On the morning of my ear surgery… I’m off soon for a long anticipated / dreaded operation on my ear. Wish me luck. I need it!

No photos of me with a scalpel operating / dissecting my ear but…
Some Spring brightness at Queen Elizabeth Park, Vancouver, Canada.

A sea of red and majestic Mount Cheam…
and a yellow rebel tulip too. Last Spring at the Tulips of the Valley Festival, east of Vancouver.

What I am listening to?

Now, this is the New Country music that I enjoy. Such a cool song too. This is Sam Hunt and Break Up In A Small Town!



On a dark cloudy morning in Vancouver… Instead of clouds, how about some tulips?
From the Tulips of the Valley Festival.

Can you believe that this is a tulip?

Posted on the morning after my operation… I survived my ear operation which was more serious than I had thought. Now I have a good idea what a Mastoidectomy and a Tympanoplasty are. That’s because I had both in one four hour operation. Thanks to Dr. Nunez and his team at UBC Hospital. Now, I hope to recover soon 🙂

No photos of my ear scar, or any other scar for that matter, but…
Under cloudy skies…
A beautiful rainbow of colour at the Tulips of the Valley Festival.

After the death of his mother, he chose to walk the famous pilgrimage, the Camino de Santiago, across the north of Spain, despite knowing little about it. He certainly didn’t plan to write a book until the latter days of his Camino. Similar to walking the Camino, writing and publishing a book was a learning experience.
