ADVENTURES IN VICTORIA

Trek north to Victoria to see
Famous Jungian analyst;
Workshop focused on heart as
Inner compass: attend to activities
During which heart sings and 
Soul fills; time becomes timeless.

Ferry from Anacortes and back;
Drive through rampant rain, to,
Drive through motorcycles, fro.
Joe ferried us on land from
Place to place to place to place.

Synchronicities strewn along path: 
Penguin Coffee Shop, t-shirt for Lar;
Viking exhibit at Royal BC Museum;
Bagpipers regularly erupting in vicinity,
Once en masse down sidewalk.
Brochure for Seattle's Most BORING
Exhibit: SR 99 Tunnel Exhibit--amen!

Christ Church Cathedral, Quadra at Rockland,
Enormous new organ; 10 new astonishing 
Stained-glass windows abounding with angels.
Mid-morn service cancelled for later Feast of 
Dedication Celebration; priest available for personal
Tour to upstairs windows and downstairs crypt,
Winding narrow staircase, sans Black Madonna.

Quality Inn on Blanshard and Courtney.
Argyle Attic pub upstairs for scrumptious
breakfast, walls stenciled with phrases:

"Canada is like your attic; 
You forget what is up there, 
but when you go, it's like,
'Oh man, look at all this great stuff!'"

"This is how I used to be, pretty, eh?"

"There are few, if any, Canadian men 
who have never spelled their name
in a snow bank."

"I want to thank all the Canadians 
who came out today to wave to me 
with all five fingers."
