If you light a lamp for somebody, it will also brighten your path.
It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light.
No one saves us but ourselves. No one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. YOU yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.
If you truly loved yourself, you can never hurt another.
on February 14th we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day. It is a day about love, chocolates and flowers. It is a day for everyone and when we think of all the people we care about. Husbands, wives, parents, children, teachers and friends. Everyone is included. Even our four-legged friends. I like to decorate with flowers and cards around the house and have a nice meal with the people I love. Even Tina, my beloved dog, will have a special home cooked meal of steak and carrots.

One of the best love stories ever, written by GRAHAM GREENE. A story about love and jealousy with a tragic ending. One of my favorite books.
HAPPY ST. VALENTINE TO TINA
Since Montreal is surrounded by many islands, we also have many bridges to cross, some small and some very long. I love the look of the waterfront and I went this week to take some pictures of the little islands near where I live. Of course in winter it does look different and it looks as if the rivers and lakes have gone to sleep.

There are still ducks brave enough to face the winter

and even more the soft cushions….
