"From too much love of living, 
From hope and fear set free, 
We thank with brief thanksgiving 
Whatever gods may be
That no life lives for ever; 
That dead men rise up never; 
That even the weariest river 
Winds somewhere safe to sea"
(A C Swinburne)

The parting SUNday shot from Canada - Halifax airport and there had been a big heavy shower, leaving this beauty behind it.
