Too bad we live in a country where sun isn’t bountiful. When I was growing up I often asked my parents about their immigration choice. You see, at the time they were considering leaving England, they told me there were two countries accepting British immigrants – Canada and Australia. Apparently, they went to a library and saw a film about Canada and one about Australia. They chose Canada because the flight home to England to visit relatives was not as long as the flight to Australia. I get that. It was definitely important in their young lives to be able to go back and forth to see family.

For me though, when the temperature drops, the snow begins to fall and I know we have fewer hours of daylight sun, I think to myself, “why didn’t you choose Australia?”
