If I were to sit here and list everything that I was thankful for in my life it would take me a really long time. Perhaps that’s it though, people don’t take the time to appreciate things. I’ll start an un-justified list, meaning I’ll just say simply what it is and not explain it.

Mom and Dad.
My best friends.
Having a roof over my head.
My health.
Clean air.
The night sky.
Sound mind.
The internet.

Haha. There’s obviously so much more to this list, I didn’t want to go into specifics or get too materialistic. But I am thankful for all of those things, and I’m thankful for them every single day & not just the second Monday in October.

In other news, I spent my weekend filming the Trapline Marathon for work. What a rush that was! I was so impressed by all the runners, especially two in particular. There was an 8 yo running with who I can only assume to be his dad, he ran the 10k and killed it! And then there was Michal Kapral, the ‘joggler’. He holds the Guinness World Record title for fastest marathon while juggling three balls. That was a sight to see!

My morning on Sunday started at 6 a.m. and lasted until about 2. And then from 6 to 9 at night. After that was all over, I felt I really needed to wind down so my friend Doug and I took a drive to the dock and C-Side and guess what I got? Obviously some night photos. Here they are.


Northern Lights of Labrador

There seriously aren’t even words to describe how utterly amazing the northern lights show was last night. I’ve only seen them a handful of times, but last night was by far the best. I went to the dock around 9 with the intention of getting a few photos of the big dipper, but I got so much more then what I expected.

I don’t want to get deeply sentimental here, but seeing the northern lights as they were last night really reminded me of how much beauty there is out there in the world. Even though there’s plenty of madness occurring all around us, sometimes you have to step back, take a breath, and remember how much bigger the world is in comparison to the problems you’re having in your life. Like I always say, looking up will never let you down.

I ended up staying down at the dock until almost midnight, I just couldn’t bare to leave. I’m so glad I brought my camera. If I had died last night I would have died a happy person. Okay, enough chit chat. Here’s the photos. You’ll note the sky color varies (not just the lights) because I was experimenting with different exposure times.


Oh, and if you’re going to take them, note that my watermark is on them so please do NOT remove it or share them as your own.
