There is good after all

This morning, I did my regular online routine. I fired up Twitter to see if there were any messages, notifications and direct messages and acted on them as necessary.

Then, as always, I looked to see what was trending.

It’s my way to find out what’s new, current, and interesting in Canada. It’s a first step before going to look for news from other sources. This is what I saw.

Whaaaa? The #CNTower is trending?

What would your reaction be?

Mine certainly wasn’t that something positive happened. We live in a world where we’ve come to expect the worst. I was fearful

But then, I became happy.

Nothing bad had happened. In fact, it was a good news item with lots of tourists and locals sharing images from this outstanding landmark.

Here’s a great one.

I kicked myself for my thoughts and worries.

Then, I went through and enjoyed many of the images that had been shared. It really is a wonderful photo-opportunity and I was so impressed with the various angles and moods of the tower as it shows off its nighttime colours.

Then, I went on to discover the joys of being left-handed.

  1. I had similar thoughts to you, Doug, when I saw that the CN Tower was trending. Does this, unfortunately, speak about our current world reality? Not sure what it would take for this to change, or even if it could, but I am happy that this was a good news story. We need more of those.

  2. I’m with you on that, sister. I feel badly that my initial reaction wasn’t positive. I do think that it’s a sign of the times.
