Dépaysement: Decoy Deer

Dépaysement translates roughly as “change of scenery.” It translates even more roughly as “The feeling that comes from not being in one’s own country.”

I am an American in Canada. It takes some getting used to.

There are so many things about this I just do not understand.

Thanks to The Huffington Post (believe it or not) for this.

Enjoy the tree and please comment. We’ll see it later if we’re not in the chat at the time.

Ride Don’t Hide – Promoting Mental Health

On June 21, 2015, I’ll be riding 40K (roughly 25 miles) for the Canadian Mental Health Association. It’s a beautiful ride that starts and ends in downtown Kelowna, and winds through the orchards and vineyards of southeast Kelowna.

CMHA Kelowna helps people with mental illnesses find jobs, housing, and access to services. Take a look at their website, and contact them if you need help or if you would like to help.

I am honoured to ride and to help raise some money for the CMHA. If you’re reading this before June 21 and would like to sponsor, my fundraising page is here. If you’re reading this at some other time, please consider donating directly or volunteering.
