The Best and Worst of Canada by Mirella Ionta

ovicover_11_08_17.gifI have compiled a list that sums up the best and worst of Canada’s artistic, culinary, literary, musical, political and social elements. It is based on my opinion, derived from my own personal experience, having resided in both Montreal and Vancouver and having visited parts of Quebec and Ontario.

Best Canadian Food: Homemade meat pies, sugar pies, maple syrup pies

Best Canadian Drink: Canada Dry Ginger Ale

Best Known Canadian Writer: Leonard Cohen and Gabrielle Roy

Best Canadian Fine Artist: Emily Carr, an artist from Vancouver but the elementary school I attended in Montreal was named after her so maybe I am being biased here.

Most Physically Attractive Person from Canada: Linda Evangelista (I think she was the best-looking out of all the supermodels because she had her own style, looked great in every haircut and hair color, could pull off any look from the androgynous to the ultra feminine look and made it her own)

Most Funny Canadian : Many comedians come from Canada: Mike Myers, Jim Carrey, Norm Macdonald, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy. Of these, I like Norm Macdonald’s humour the most. I find it the most natural and updated. Sometimes his jokes have no punchline and he does not follow the conventional style of telling a joke. He also does not rely on overdone imitations and impersonation.

In addition, Josh Freed, a journalist from Montreal, writes funny editorials in The Gazette and has published entire books based on them.

The lines by Uzeyir Lokman Cayci

The more I approach, the more I move away
The more I move away, the more I co-exist
Large lines
Belonging to the infinite one
who brushes lightly against my feelings…
Old lines
Which I color with sorrows
To which I give form with my tears
That I deepen through a whole life
And that I move away from in myself
And which flee from me…
Fine lines
That I mix with
Many recoveries
With which I juggle
Misleading, attractive
Transparent meanings
Significant and contradictory…
With a finality in my heart like tenderness
Sinuous in the way of love
Continuous, decided, alive…
As the lines run in me
They return to me happily
Blue, green and white
Friendly lines…

Carpe Diem – NOT by Katerina Charisi

ovicover_08_08_17.gifA few days ago, an internet friend from US posted a comment about the sudden death of a neighbor. The man had gone to his work as usual but looked bad. When his colleagues asked him what’s wrong he said “well, this is one of those days you think it would be better to stay home. My car’s broken, my wife’s too, the roof has a leak and I really don’t know how I’m supposed to get through this. I actually don’t feel very well.” Just a little while later and the man falls down and dies of a heart attack.

Unfortunately this is an everyday’s reality all over the world and Greece is not the only country that suffers from austerity. Financial struggles are an open wound that keeps bleeding for many people around the western – supposedly well off – world. The stress caused by everyday’s problems is killing us slowly or eventually once and for all. I think there’s no place for drama and tearful statements here; we all know what means not to know what’s going to happen to you tomorrow, wondering if all you have done and fought for and achieved in your life are going wasted… Each day.

But what really made me to sit down and write my thoughts today about this tragic incident, is how people responded to my friend’s FB status about it, trying to express their sympathy and condolences. You know, sometimes the weirdest and most thoughtful conversations happen online. So everyone shared their thoughts, adding “just live for the day, man”.

And that was what hit me.
