Oh Canada

I came
For big mountains
And the deep deep snow

I stayed
For the kindness
And the deep deep grow

1981… 35 years ago, I arrived in Whistler, a couple months in advance of the ski season. I did “look back”; went home to New Hampshire for the summer of ’82. But ‘home’ wasn’t home anymore.

Born in West Germany on a Canadian Air Force Base. Raised in the USA — all my youthful memories are there. But, it turns out, I was always a Canadian.
