flamebyrd: (song)
I was noodling around on the piano earlier with "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"*, a song for which I am familiar with the tune but hazy on the lyrics.

So to make up for the loss, my brain substituted the contents of "A Bush Christening", by Banjo Patterson.

Go on, sing it.

...I set foot in Canada for the first time.

We flew into Vancouver, and eventually hit Calgary, Toronto and Montreal before flying on to London (England).

I was struck by the beauty of the mountains and how you could see them from everywhere.

I had no idea that I would ever be living here.

I was 24. I was working as a SharePoint/ASP.NET developer for the same university I'd studied at.

(I was still playing WoW. I was still watching anime. I'd just encountered Ouran High School Host Club for the first time. I was working on Kite and an untitled story about a vampire detective.)

I was pretty sure I'd marry the guy I was with someday, but we were still over a year away from being engaged.

3 years and 1 day later, we arrived here on a working holiday visa. I had a 1 year leave of absence from my job. We figured we'd stay a couple of years and then head back.

I love this city, and I'm going to miss it.
