The Holy Flame Burns in Vancouver

The Olympic Games are always an important thing to me, but most especially the Winter Olympics.  I watched the last parts of the Opening Ceremony last night live after I returned home from work, including the double lighting of the cauldron — once in BC Place, and the second time the actual outdoor urn on the waterfront, done solo this time by Wayne Gretzky.

The Olympic Flag will fly over my store, Harper’s fine Art and Photographs, in Desire region until the games close in about 16 days, and this replica of the Vancouver torch will burn inside the store.  May its holy flame, symbol of aspiration, peace and the striving for excellence, inspire us all both in world and beyond the Grid.
