I was just sent a link to this “Dear Vancouver” video on YouTube and I have to say, it’s pretty neat.
One night after dinner a few months ago, John and I went for a walk in the West End. Even though I had traveled the same path hundreds of times before, I took out my phone and snapped photos along the way. I captioned each “Dear Vancouver, I love you” and uploaded them to Flickr, pinging Twitter along the way.
Sometimes it’s nice to just stop, take a look around, and appreciate where we live. It is beautiful, it is miserable, it is charming, it’s fabulous, and it’s heartbreaking. It’s not perfect by any means, but it is home. I chose to live here, as did my American husband.
The video above is yet another reason I love my city. It’s full of creative people and every once and a while someone decides to spread that word that Vancouver isn’t all that bad.
