Well it’s been two years and a bit since our house fire.
So what has changed since then you might ask? Well, actually I’ve been asking myself that. When the fire first happened we were very tempted to go back to Ontario, but we stayed. And I must admit I am glad we did, British Columbia is with out a dought home.
We litterally lost everything in that fire. Even my shoes. If your incline to chat with me in real time, I can be found on indymedia’s irc server in channel #underground. So can a guy who goes by the nickname leaf.
Leaf sent me a pair of shoes. He sent me a couple actually, nice guy that he is. And I litterally wore out the runners a while ago. But the slippers, they are still going strong.
Nobody makes shoes right anymore it seems, but once in a while a pair come my way that are worth their weight in gold. They last and last.
I’m part of me that italian. but who knows for sure.
Anyway, thanks for letting me walk many a mile in your shoes leaf.
