Rue St. Gerard, Montreal. Another lovely visit with a dear old friend, thank you Shirley!

I’m not fearful of what’s going to happen in Halifax, not exactly. I know this is going to be amazing set of changes in my life. But it’s still this huge unknown, which leaves me feeling a vague vulnerability that I’m not used to. I mention this because I was surprised to arrive in Montreal, a city that I looooove, and find that I really just wanted to hide! I’d forgotten how terrible my french is, and yeah I know you can get away with that here but I prefer to be making an effort to speak what the locals do… anyway on day one here I found that particular challenge a wee bit overwhelming.
