“To laugh often and much;
To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children
To leave the world a better place
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded. (Emerson)
Edgy West Queen Street West is a fabulous neighborhood.
Doorways beckon; come in, poke around, find a treasure. This is a neighborhood of eccentric shops and charming cafes, art galleries and funky bars.
In a crowded, musty store filled with yesterdays memories I met Gabriel. His horn was playing an illusive song. The melody haunted me. The words just out of my grasp. I carried Gabriel away. I placed him high, high on the wall. He looks down at us and blows his horn.
I hear the words.
Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
(Gabriel is another Angel I have collected. Gabriel hangs in my home away from home. I am never far from angels.)
