Song: "Carolina Sky"

Visiting the U.S.A. from Canada, you observe that so much is very similar in the two countries. You'd think it would be easy for a Canadian to forget he is a foreigner. Not me. From the outside, it's a strange land. Oh, it has its appealing features, elements that dazzle and get held high and sometimes look like what everyone wants but there is baggage - heavy baggage. When I was in Virginia, a server in a coffee bar asked, "So, how's Canada?"

"Different," I said.

Sometimes, it's good to have dreams and sometimes it's good to create some different dreams. As for the American Dream, I would ask my American friends, "So, how's that workin' for ya?"
