NATASHA RICHARDSON - 10 YEARS IN 2019




NATASHA RICHARDSON - 10 YEARS IN 2019 -
By Bernard Bujold- 
On Sunday, March 15, 2009, I had descended the Nansen ski slope in Mont Tremblant several times. 
On Monday, March 16, Natasha Richardson was going down the same slope but she made one falling, which will be fatal to her! I often wondered if Natasha had crashed in the same place where I too, the day before, had once or twice fall on the Nansen? 
Natasha Richardson died after her fall while skiing and on the evening of March 18, the family spokesperson announced her death....

CHANGING THE WORLD IN 2019









CHANGING THE WORLD IN 2019 -
By Bernard Bujold- 
 Friday, March 15 will be considered as the #ClimateSrike Day around the world. A kind of joint demonstration by young teenagers who want to change the world in terms of climate and who demonstrate on the streets rather than in the classroom. 
Will the process achieve its goal? 
Changing the world is not easy and of the millions of people who dream of doing so, only about ten people or so succeed in achieving this goal during their lifetime. I am thinking here of a Mark Zuckerberg, Steve Jobs, or more recently a René Angélil. Others have made remarkable efforts but unfortunately failed in the end, such as René Lévesque. 
Personally, I dreamed of changing the world 5 or 6 times. I never changed "THE" world but I changed "MY" world... 
The effort of the young people with the #ClimateStrike project is commendable, as was the one of the RED SQUARE. But in the case of the Red Squares, we cannot say that the world has changed... 
Life is a journey and I continually repeat Shakespeare's phrase from his tragedy Julius Ceasar to those around me: "There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries..."

SPRING RIDING TOUR 2019





SPRING RIDING TOUR 2019
By Bernard Bujold -
Nothing is more pleasant in the spring than a snowshoeing on a St. Lawrence River still in ice. Obviously we must not get too far from the banks, but the faithful Ulysses was there to remind me to be careful... 
Nature is also very changing.... 
The top photos were taken on Tuesday (March 12) and on Thursday (March 14), the ice had left the river...

INSPIRATION BY YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS IN 2019



INSPIRATION OF YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE MONTREAL MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS IN 2019 -
By Bernard Bujold -
I love to visit the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts because, each time, I always come back with a new inspiration. 
During my visit of the weekend, it is in a small room of exhibition in the 1st basement that I made my discovery by visiting the project TRANSFORMATION. 
It is often believed that the new generation has no motivation like us in our time! Well, we are wrong and reading the text of a young Chris 18 years deeply convinced me the opposite of my belief... 
Here is her text: 
"Hi whoever is reading this. My name is Chris and I know life is tough sometimes but I know you are strong and I want you to know if you keep going everything will work out for you. I want you to remember that if you find obstacles in life it means you are going the right way. It's a lot like how in video games, when you find an obstacle you don't just stop playing, you find a way to work around them. Just know that everything will work out. I know you are special and if you think that you are not, look in the mirror and tell yourself something nice every day until you believe it. 
I hope you have a great day. "
- Chris - 18 years old

THE PASSAGE OF TIME IN 2019



THE PASSAGE OF TIME IN 2019 - 
By Bernard Bujold - 
The passage of time is a mystery even greater than life as such. 
At some point we are in an environment and a few years later everything will be gone from reality, and sometimes even forgotten! 
Financial successes or failures; eternal loves or without a future; arrivals or departures of friends and relatives; joys and misfortunes; and more! This question about the reality of time is an interesting question but without a definitive answer. 
So we should not lose too much time on the subject and we should rather make the most of the journey of life. And as Shakespeare said: "There is a wave on the ocean of life, which if taken at the right moment at the shore will lead the ship to new lands full of hope and promise ..." 
Have a nice trip in time!
