These photos were taken from a shopping bag “Unhappily Married” and should explain the title.

A Toast To Canada

O Canada, I have not forgotten you,
and as I kneel in my canoe, beholding this vision   
of a bookcase, I pray that I remain in your vast,
polar, North American memory.
You are the paddle, the snowshoe, the cabin in the pines.   
You are Jean de Brébeuf with his martyr’s necklace of hatchet heads.
You are the moose in the clearing and the moosehead on the wall.
You are the rapids, the propeller, the kerosene lamp.   
You are the dust that coats the roadside berries.   
But not only that.
You are the two boys with pails walking along that road,   
and one of them, the taller one minus the straw hat, is me.

Kiss Me. Really!

kiss me

Apparently this is a 900 year old Viking message that reads “Kiss Me” according to runologist Jonas Nordby who decoded it.  Really?  Maybe it’s a Valentine’s card.

I didn’t realize kiss me is part of Viking’s vocabulary.  All I know that the only thing that touches their lips is bjórr.
