We left Gleason looking longingly after us.... ...apparently wishing he could go look at colleges too... ...but he was in charge of protecting and looking after Bobbay.... My sister Mary Beth, Joe and I arrived in Montreal around 4 pm and took a walk to catch our first look at McGill, the prestigious international university.
On the walk, we passed some beautiful shops which I was not allowed to stop in!!! ...at least not yet!
That was our first glimpse! Isn't it beautiful?
Today, we are meeting Zita of Mlle Magpie who will be taking us to Rue Notre Dame to see the sights and point out the antique shops ! :)
This afternoon we will be touring the University and sitting in on a session for accepted students! What a wonderful city Montreal is...
I will share the rest of our day and any interesting "finds" later!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
