He`s got the Whole World in His Hands

The world is impossibly small.  Get this,

In February Halifax hosted the Canada Winter games.  My sister was competing and my mother went along to watch.  My mother is an Artist, and lately she has been working with digital film, photo and society.  While in Halifax she walked the streets and gave away over 300 home made chocolate-chip cookies in an endeavor to meet 300 strangers.  Ironically facebook is the media chosen to present this collection of personal interaction.  Take a walk through the page, Hi I'm Bonnie.  I helped with some of the technical aspects and became pretty familiar with the footage.  The links discovered between complete strangers are astounding.

Yesterday I moved to Ottawa.  I am renting the second room of a townhouse in New Edinburgh.  When I knocked on the door for the first time, who should answer but a familiar face.  No, it is no one I have ever met before.  Wallen was in Halifax during the Canada Games and, he was the recipient of a single chocolate-chip cookie from a complete stranger.

  1. Well, Cuylar, what a small world. Who would have know that I knew your mother who inquired re a place to stay in Ottawa and there is my neighbour Wallen who had already met your mother in Halifax. Full circle. Hope to meet up with you soon, I am next door. I am sure Wallen has told you about me already,.
