Bridges lighting up

Residents of all ages, once strangers, now gather and chat amicably. Some wander through the alley together, while others sit on brightly coloured benches and watch their children play. The Alley of Peace is alive with the buzz of cicadas and the hum of new relationships.

Bread of Life

In many countries, bread is the primary source of food, much like rice in Asia. But bread is also a symbol of everyday life: we work for our bread and butter and to put bread on the table; we break bread, or take the bread out of someone’s mouth. All of these idioms demonstrate how fundamental bread is to our daily lives.

Live a Healthy Life

As I reflected on the theme of this issue, I thought of all the new immigrants arriving in Canada and who are being welcomed by many families in Quebec. We could say that we are in good health because being healthy is not only watching our weight, but it is also thinking of others, being open and sharing the best we have.
