Banff or Banff Part IV

As summer winds down, so does our series on Banff. Just as it was hard to leave this place, it’s hard to leave this four-part picture fest. But we are not sad because we know we can come back any time. Enjoy.

Cheers!

Banff or Banff?

Whether you are speaking about the town or the national park (or both), there’s no denying the beauty of this place. This is the first of a four part pictorial from our recent visit. Enjoy.

Tracks and Ice

February mixes the Spokane River with ice.

Just west of the Spokane House historical site, winter clings to the banks of the Spokane River.

135 Extracted Words – The Tease – June 2020

I write flash fiction, non-fiction, essays and novels. This month’s Tease is from a work in progress.

 

June 2020

 

How do you plan when there is no plan? How do you walk when there is no path? I live my life looking forward to the next “big thing”. Events, visits, trips, festivals. In my obligatory Covid-19 piece, which will emerge eventually (history practically demands it) I must speak of the people we’ve lost, the moments we’ve lost, the time we’ll never regain. But even that tally isn’t completed yet. Hell, the worst might be yet to come. And yet, in the capture of all this turmoil, the thing I miss most seems to be anticipation. Who dares plan anything at this point? A dinner out, perhaps, but a vacation … a trip … a cruise. Forget it. I miss that longing, that lean forward. Yes, we try to live in the moment, but if the moment is now, it’s not that appealing.
