a house on fire

Toronto, 2014.07.23

Tonight in the wee hours, we were woken by the sirens of fire engines; a house across the street was aflame. It wasn't until much later that we learned all was well, but once again I was amazed at just how on top of things the fire department really is; they were here before the fire had gotten very far, and from the looks of the torched van and ruined garage, things could have been much worse.

We're all well.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Work is about a daily search for meaning as well as daily bread; for recognition as well as cash; for astonishment rather than torpor; in short for a sort of life, rather than a monday-to-friday sort of dying.
