Topiaries And Slow Blind People

Dear Boston,
We’ll always have a special connection you and I. Among the intimate moments we have shared, a monumental milestone in my life, a first. As, before you came into my life, I had never seen a real topiary Elephant. Ever.

I’ve never seen such thoughtfulness through street signage either. Sure Toronto encourages you to Mind The Gap -every opportunity it gets, but this, this is above and beyond considerate.
Because we all know how annoying it can be to suddenly come across blind slow people without warning…

And whole days where standing is forbidden? Some might find this rude and controlling but I, for one, welcome the insistence that I take a load off.

But I think, most of all, I love your excellent parenting strategies. I met some teenagers this weekend whose parents give them consequences if they get anything less than a B+ on any given subject in school!

I’m lucky if I can get my kids to go to school at all, and good luck finding them, if ever I should wish to enforce any kind of consequences.

After a little walk around Hyde Park I started to feel inspired, and hopeful about finding parenting solutions and I think we’ll be on the right track again soon.

Thank you for that…

Jennifer June
