A Blessing

For that which we are about to eat, may we be truly thankful.

Granville Island, Vancouver, B.C.

“Some hae meat and canna eat, –

And some wad eat that want it;

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

Sae let the Lord be thankit.”

Robert Burns

    1. I love the intoxicating smell of markets. Music, food, crafts and laughter! What better combination could there be!! Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit and joining the conversation!!


  1. I see you have quoted Robert Burns. I was not acquainted with this poem but have studied a little about “To a Mouse” and “To a Louse”–both worth reflection. It is my understanding that the title “Of Mice and Men” came from “To a Mouse.” But, I regress–but who better to write your quote than Bobby Burns.


    1. We buy locally too! Vancouver has several farmer markets in the summer time. And then there is one “indoor” farmer’s market when the weather turns cold!


  2. What a wonderful place to shop! I wish we had one here. I noticed you said you have an indoor farmer’s market there. I was just thinking about that the other day, wishing we had one of those too. 🙂


    1. The subject of food distribution is something that I have always been interested in…you just gave me another post idea! Going forward, this topic will become ever more important. The big questions that our children will face: who will share the food, the clean water and freshest air! Thanks so much for stopping by – I love seeing your beautiful gravatar!


      1. I agree! … and I can’t wait to see that post. The photo I have for my gravatar is of some larkspur I grew about 6 years ago. Larkspur is one of my favorite flowers. It comes in so many different vibrant colors. And keeps its color even after drying it.
