Why I deliver the Campbell River Mirror

This morning, crisp and sunny, my husband and I delivered the Mirror to our cul du sac and a few dozen houses around.

The small deer nestled asleep under the tree across the street drew our attention; the myriad different bird calls, and the knocking/pecking sound of the lady flicker on the chimney greeted us.

So did a neighbour down the road who was new to me. As well, two little children I’d never seen before piled into their car with their Mom and announced that they were on their way to yoga class. Fresh sprouts of green drew our attention as we commented on the arrival of spring plants in various gardens.

It was a happy, wonder-producing 25 minutes of exercise that I didn’t have to pay to do. In fact, at the end of the month, we will get paid and will spend every cent in our town. Likely on a lovely meal.
