I know money is tight in all walks of life, but I'm heartened to see it's not all gloom and doom and decay in our neighborhood.
As I cycled home from work this evening, I met a sign advising that the trail ahead was closed off. With some trepidation, I ventured onto the adjacent (and busy) highway for two kilometers to the next intersection. Along the way, I looked over the edge of the road to see what they were doing. Nice new cycle path under construction, looks like double the width of the old one.
I am thankful for little signs like this that, despite the squeeze we are working under, there is still time for enhancing the amenities around us.
