A Second Chance in Terrace, BC

This post is copied from the BC Book Prizes Tour Blog. It’s a “second chance” because I was fortunate to have been invited to Terrace for the 2008 tour. I was also featured in a local newspaper article on April 13, 2010.

Terrace, do you know how much I’ve missed you?

I look at you and see your gorgeous mountains—snow covered mountains in every direction and my heart aches for you.

Terrace, how can you be so exquisitely perfect?

I listen to you and hear your people—imaginative people who enjoy the BC culture, including its nominated books.

Terrace, do you steal everyone’s breath away in the ways that you’ve taken mine?

I feel your majesty—awe-filled majesty, including your traditions, painted spirit bears, and gorgeous walking paths.

Terrace, would it be fair to say that you are second to none?

I’ve received a second chance—an extraordinary second chance to be with you again!
