I read the Rime of the Ancient Mariner many years ago in school, and we delved lightly into the innuendo and underlying message. I always remembered the albatross and the death ship, but only in these last years, did the reality of this message in its overwhelming and intense form, really hit home. All the water around us, the lakes and rivers, springs and streams, we think we are blessed, but how much of it is safe to drink?
Over the past year, this province has experienced a disheartening and enlightening series of exposures to what has proven to be an underworld of sorts in our government and their management of healthcare, the environment, the education system, among many other things.

A number of months ago, I posted about my good friend, Lisa, and her family. Their situation was critical.
Nobel Prize Winner, Robert A. Millikan once said, “To distort the facts to conform to the opinions has become well-nigh irresistible.” These days, if government in Nova Scotia want people to believe their opinion, it is too tempting to leave out, or misrepresent or manipulate the facts, in order to create a layer of support. As a result, it is becoming impossible to believe anything they claim. Especially when they refer to facts. And science. Often in the same sentence.
How great it can be to be recognized and mentioned in the blogging circles.
This really is thrilling.
