Flashback Road Trip Part 1: Good Bye Whistler




September 2 – 14, 2011
Whistler 
Floating docks and friends on Alta Lake with fire pits,
trapdoors and bitch-pops until 2am;
beach cruiser cruising along the Valley Trail (
http://www.whistler.com), 40 km of winding vistas
and a panorama of snow-tips, brown gully’s and forest-tipped mountains
from Spruce Grove, Green Lake, Apline to Lakes Lost (
http://www.whistlereh.com/whistler/parks/lost.htm),
golf courses primed and teddy bears of the 3-D kind
in every colour and size of their majestic girth
to Creekside and the other side of home-grown local watering holes
South of Southside’s pride (
http://southsidediner.ca/) to Function
(what a junction of art and business bonafide)(
http://www.artjunction.ca/);
home-cooked dinners and dinners at Sushi (
http://www.sushivillage.com/) combining parties
sending off new friends and old souls,
welcoming back those from a dusty desert Burningman patrol (
http://www.burningman.com/); Craigslist -sold! from bed to bike and household goods alike
which cannot be stuffed into a Honda that I’m fond of -
this original companion and host for the last few years of wine touring (
http://okanaganbritishcolumbia.com/),
island touring (
http://www.tofino-bc.com) and rocky mountain highways
in all terrain and all West Coast weather
of snow dumps, drizzles and sunny bliss;
54-40 concert in Olympic Plaza (
http://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/todo/events/index.htm)
wailing jeers of new-school cougars dancing with their daughters,
mixing and mingling to catchy beats with bare feets;
long walks for art (
http://www.plazagalleries.com) and hikes reuniting friends from years apart
last recalling when weather was not this good;
positivity pointing perspectives in the right direction
of our own introspection and habitual migration;
movie premiere Art of Flight ((
http://artofflightmovie.com/) meeting Mr.Rice and a crew
who soured and slid those salivating tips askew
hyping an imminent season of sensational snow, Bravo!;
saying good-bye to geography and wishful thinking
remembering primal fears and tears from bits of humour exchanged, echoing
 men are cowards and women are liars
but:
LIFE – is –  GOOD.
