Here I present a photo taken in my yard where I have placed a Canadian flag on the garden shed. I was quite pleased with the image as it puts the flag in the shade and looks out from a dim shadowy place as though reaching out to the sun as late afternoon begins to fade into evening. I have to admit that I took this photo last year. Somehow or other, I never got around to putting up any Canada Day decorations. The yard looks as it does any other summer day.
Am I less patriotic? I admit that this might be the case now that I have been to many countries and live for the most part in China, I am finding myself less attached to place in terms of a geo-political place. The world of governments is not doing much to make it easy to be proud of country. That said, I do love my country and know that it is my “home” in terms of cultural roots.
