In a previous blog, I refer to the momentum of anger. It generates a smouldering burn that leaves the angry feeling powerful. This feeling of angry power can explode without reason, like a flash fire, resulting in disastrous consequences. Although our unique Canadian protest with hot tubs, playing children, bouncy castles, and pig roasts give the humorous and playful optic, what isn’t featured is the shadowy sinister support. The seizing of the arms at Coutts was a terrifying image and is an indicator that some protestors are intent on violently making their point.
In 2007, I wrote a story that addresses that point of anger between two tribes. The Elf King, Mark, illustrated the story about a year ago. He is considering redoing the illustrations digitally which we could publish. In the meantime have a watch and let me know what you think.
Let’s hope that sooner than later we can get back to being the peaceful, fun-loving, generous Canadian family that we are known for globally!
