Recently, I visited a city in the American Midwest and found my encounters with strangers intriguing. In this still segregated community, a smile offered to an African-American generated a comment and a laugh, a relationship.

 

The Hub commissioned this original video, by Owen Sounder Kenny MacLaughlin, to celebrate the joy of summer in Bruce-Grey. Enjoy.

 

Here's a nice feature on the Manitoulin Cougar, in the Manitoulin Expositor. http://www.manitoulin.ca/trail-camera-authenticates-island-cougar

I go find my son. "Change of plan," I say to him. He looks quizzical. "The tractor overheated out in the lane. We need to go with Dad and figure out what went wrong." Five minutes later, the three of us jump in the truck and head back.

We were supposed to take the same vehicle to town and look at water bowls for the barn. One of them needs to be replaced right away. But haying takes priority in this season, so getting the tractor fixed comes first.

Tomorrow we fly to Burkina Faso in West Africa. This is a country we have not been to before, but we will meet up with our daughter for the wedding of a family friend. The visit will provide an enriching experience of a deep and complex African culture.

It is intriguing throughout Africa to see the way modern and tribal identities interact. On this trip, we will be part of a village wedding and a church one. The traditions of western family and friends will join with Burkinabe to make this a complex and joyous celebration.
