Little bird…

. Little bird, You flew so high, Your pointy beak Almost pierced the sky… But it was dangerous, That you didn’t know. As, little bird, you just flew With the flow. So you reached higher And burnt your wings, Your frail body Unexpectedly falling… They picked you up Put you in a cage, For once…… Continue reading Little bird…

Tweet or twit?

I don’t Tweet. I’ve tried, and it took me forever to understand Twitter. When I finally started to get it, I gave up. Because it is too fast for me.

I think that most Quebecers know about Fermont but…… Continue reading The wall…

Chasing the monsters away…

  I miss being a little girl today. I had a great childhood, and I am grateful for that. We didn’t have much money, but my parents were hard workers, and they went out of their ways to make sure we never suffered from our life on a (tight) budget. There was so much love…… Continue reading Chasing the monsters away…

Is that… A plane???

I saw the following video online this morning, and for some reason, I just had to share it. It happened last Thursday just outside Québec City, on highway 40. After experiencing some technical problems, a plane had to make an emergency landing. At first, I was convinced this was a prank video. I’m so used to the…… Continue reading Is that… A plane???
