Bigger Picture

Well it is Thanksgiving in the USA, and I know we celebrated it a month ago here in Canada , But Happy Thanksgiving to all.

While watching the football games today on TV, being a feast of games for Thanksgiving in the NFL.  I could not help my self wondering where some of these guys minds were.  I have observed this mindset before during games of any sport.  But today It just got me wondering why no one says anything about it.

One team was losing by almost 3 touchdowns and only a miracle would get them to win.  A defensive lineman hits the Quarterback in the arm and the ball pops out.  But the offensive team quickly falls on the ball and no big harm done to the offense.
But the defensive player is jumping up and down with great joy, for his knocking the ball loose.  His team did not get the ball back and its still looking like they are going to loose big time. But he is still doing a great dance of Joy and celebration.

He seems to be caught up in his own little world, and not seeing the bigger picture that his team is getting beat badly.

Again in a hockey game a player gets a big hit or wins a fight and is so proud of himself as he is skating off to the bench or penalty box .  His team is losing 5-0 and he again is celebrating.
Does he not see the big picture? 

Well how bout us on Thanksgiving , whether USA or Canada. Do we only see it as one day to thank God for our blessings or maybe we should see the big picture and thank him everyday.

Well what do you think?

Who's Bottom ?

Quick's Bottom.   One of the spots I haven't been to in Greater Victoria in years.  It is one of Saanich's least know parks.  
A bird sanctuary that you can access off of Wilkinson rd or Markham rd.

A good 40 min walk around but as the winter sets in I would not advise it unless your wearing rubber boots.  I'm planning on going back in the spring.  I hear it is a great place to bird watch.  I'm not a big bird watcher but I'm sure I could watch for a bit.   Notice the bird blind.   
I would rather just sit out in the open on a deck if you ask me.    

Anyway check it out.

Arrived in Courtenay

Well in my imaginary walk, where i keep track of my walking and then translate it into a walk up Vancouver Island, I am just leaving Courtenay .    The walk from Parksville to Courtenay took 14 hrs and 38 min.   And now the next section is Courtenay to Campbell River.  This should take 9 hrs and 44 min.

Well that should take a week and half or two weeks.   Ok keep walking best way to stay fit.
