This lovely photo was taken from the terrace behind the Banff Springs Hotel and overlooks the Bow River.. I know Fairmont owns the hotel now but it is a subsidiary of Canadian Pacific, and I will continue to refer to the original name out of loving tradition. Many years ago, my Mother and I spent a wonderful long weekend there one May. That was when it was slightly more affordable.

My eyes are improving with medical care, new glass lens, and wonderful holistic healing of Reiki. I still have to maintain an easier schedule of working on the computer and not spend too much time, whether on the internet or making edits to my manuscripts.

My vacation plans are going ahead for late summer into the wide open spaces of the western prairies, away from concrete and pavement, large population to a place of quiet solitude and rest.

Currently, I'm reading one of the Angry Robot Army books for a review, Infernal Devices/Morlock Night by K.W. Jeter, a fascinating steampunk story.

Just looking at that view will help you eyes :-)

I'm sure those eyes of yours are doing their best with your reading activities - frustrating for one who loves to read as much as you do, but sounds like you're onto it with managing and improving the situation. Loved your photo -its still a dream for me to see this part of the world, so thanks for sharing it.

I have plans in the next three years to visit Banff National Park. I would love to stay in one of the premiere grand hotels, but fear I'll not be able to afford it. I wish they were priced more for working class folk.
