To celebrate (and in celebration of) ageing, I offer this thought:
For many years I have lovingly referred to my grey hair as my having artic highlights.
And then recently I read this tiny quote and it made me smile.
The timing was perfect in a synchronistic way.
"Those are not grey hairs, those are strands of your silver lining."
Sometimes we need those subtle reminders that we are so much more
than the sum of our external parts.
I am grateful to be living and working on the unceded territory of the Ligwilda'xw nation.
I honor the relationships with the Kwakwaka'wakw,
Homalco, Coast Salish, Klahoose, K'omoks, Metis and Inuit Indigenous peoples.
I am thankful for, and wish to respectfully acknowledge their historical and ongoing stewardship of these beautiful lands and their generosity of spirit.
I am honoured to move forward as an ally and co-conspirator in decolonization work.
