I accompanied Pam and daughter Lauren to the Chan Centre at UBC on Friday evening to see the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra performance which included Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, which I love. In law school in Toronto I was a member of Phi Delta Phi, a well funded fraternity which treated me to several trips to operas, ballets and plays. I always expected that my life would include regular attendance at such cultural events but I must admit that while in my heart I am a person of culture, in my actions that has not been the case. Workaholism, raising children and general cheapness have kept regular attendance at cultural events a goal for the future, but never a significant part of my present .
I am getting a little too old to not live out my dreams. My dreams almost ended in September so I recognize that there is no time like the present. My New Years resolution for 2020 is obvious. Enjoy the many cultural events (especially music) that take place over the Christmas season. Merry Christmas
