Welcome to the âgood newsâ blog.
I feel that Iâve been drenched with pandemic news, biological and political. You canât turn the TV or browser on anymore without the deluge of bad news.
And itâs getting worse.
The news is just so repetitious, and there are so many important questions that are just not being answered. For example, something thatâs been keeping me up at night that no-oneâs addressing, âare 2 meters apart sufficient for fart transmission?â Maybe one of you medical workers know the answer to that and can comment below.
But I’m going to make it better…
While trying to get out of my circular routine, I decided to go through my photo archives. I stumbled into some smiling faces that made me forget about the state of the globe for awhile. These photos are in the Canadian Arctic, a very rough and unforgiving territory. Even though the inhabitants often have an extremely difficult time, Iâve never seen people so willing to smile and so quick to make friends. Photography was a cinch.
So turn off your bad news stations, sit back and relax, preferable with a glass of single malt (what Iâm drinking right now) and enjoy the smiles of the children. I donât think youâll be able to resist smiling.
