Ending and Beginning

These photos of the Canadian, which runs between Toronto and Vancouver, were taken in Jasper on the way back from the retreat in Lytton. I toyed with the idea of going to Vancouver on the Canadian however the cost, as well as basic practicalities, makes flying an all round better proposition. The ride through the Rockies must be quite something especially with those observation cars.

All curves and chrome, all the way from Toronto.

....pulling out on route for Vancouver.

With the closing of one door new doors show themselves. The hard part is to keep moving towards the doors while, at the same time, not knowing what's behind them....Boo!

Fear of the future.

And once through, what then? More doors, more choices. Then, looking back. BOO!

Regrets from the past.

Oh Buddha, going on, going on, always going on, always becoming Buddha.

I've a ticket to fly from Edmonton to Vancouver on Monday afternoon.
