A Walk Around Montreal

Looking Up

In November 2016 I had a couple of days in Montreal for work. I got away for a few hours to have a look around. To get lost in the city and find some of the atmosphere of the place. I found the people friendly and the city a pleasure to walk around. So I would recommend it for a visit if you are passing.

Blue skies and cityscapes.

Old and new together.

Lots to see I know, and as I headed out of the city towards Toronto and my next stop, I sat amazed at the distance travelled in such a short time. The technology that we just expect to keep improving and working for us. We should remember though to slow down too, to see the sky above us and the world around us. Otherwise what are we doing?

Enjoy the sights around you and take some time to look at things with a visitors eyes for a while. You will see your home a bit differently.


Fragments

We keep the words clear,
from the edges of the page.
To hold them back somehow,
to create the margins we need
to survive.
