The Day After

The honking of celebratory horns went until at least 12AM outside my window. I'm sure the partying went even longer down on lower Yonge St., King St. and all across the country.

It's February 25, and it's 13 degrees celcius outside right now. Serendipity perhaps, or maybe all that celebration warmed up the country. I'm going for a walk to soak up all the smiling Canadian faces.

Several National Post articles were moving and humourus today. Canada's Moment of truth, A nation at a standstill, Shooting from the Lip, and my favourite for the day; Canada turns fear of failure into poise by Christie Blatchford.

I feel like today should be national holiday. Hey, fifty years to the day. Not a bad idea at all.
