I am currently reading ANNA KARENINA by LEO TOLSTOY. It is a famous love story. A classic literary novel by a famous Russian writer. My favorite Russian writer would have to be Vladimir Nabokov.. because of LOLITA of course. I think that although I read Lolita years ago, it still remains as my Favorite Love story.. I think it may always be my favorite love story. Gosh that book moved me. Such a well written work of art. I have great hopes for this novel by Tolstoy.. it is 700 + pages and I have only just scratched the surface, but I am very excited!

And No, one image was certainly Not Enough. How facinating is anyone that goes against the grain? Most geniuses are. Yes, I saw the film and although I would like to consider myself extremely thoughtful when it comes to my attire, I am not nearly as thoughtful as this woman. What an inspiration!! There are many of us that express ourselfves in different ways, with music, dance, film, visual art, make up, the way we wear our hair, our choice of shoes... this woman was interesting, unusual and unique, she was also an artist. Her expression was in what she wore. In how she dressed herself, she inspired women both famous and common.

So you’re probably asking yourself, “if Canadian and American thanksgiving are unrelated, why do they share the same customs?”. The reason is that during the American Revolution, Americans who were still loyal to England (fled) moved to Canada. Along with their “move”, they brought along their American thanksgiving customs and practices. Thank god, because I really like pumpkin pie!
The actual day that Thanksgiving was celebrated changed quite a bit throughout history, but it wasn’t until 1957 that Canadian Parliament officially declared that Thanksgiving was to be celebrated on the second monday in October.
Having said all that HAPPY CANADIAN THANKSGIVING!
