    Formally, from Cape Breton now living in Edmonton, Alberta. As, many more we had to leave home to find work in other parts of Canada. My Scottish Culture, was very appropriate and comfortable to live by, in Cape Breton. Upon, ones arrival in this part of Canada, you immediately bond with all aspects of your environment, you become one with its beauty as well with the caring nature of all those who reside there. When, having to leave this island and setting foot in another province, your footprints fade away and the concrete under-foot sends a message to your soul, life will never be the same. You have left the nest and the lessons of life have just begun, you are on your own. Although, it is un-nerving you calm yourself by sitting quietly in your new surroundings, and put your feelings on paper, to honour the people and the place you are so proud to call, Back Home. Been away since 1970, Cape Breton is where I am from, actually try to add it to most conversations, my way of searching for others who also have a connection to my part of the world. It, feels necessary to find a common ground, if they are not from downhome, I find comfort in knowing that we do have something in common, they welcome me here, where they call home. I am anxious to learn about their life in Alberta, but anxiously wait for my chance to tell them about Down-home and hope that by letting them hear the words I put on paper, they will get to feel the love and respect I hold to this day, for my little fishing village by the sea, Cape Breton. Your words about Cape Breton, swells my heart and pushes tears to flow, reminding me once again, the beauty that God gave us to enjoy and share. No, the jobs were not there for us to stay near, but God gave us an appreciation for such fine works of art, The Cabot Trail, Mira, Baddeck, Kelly’s Mountain, just to name a few. Johnny Reid is my favourite singer, his Scottish accent leaves me feeling a bond to the Scottish culture. Johnny, has brought a piece of Scotland to,”New Scotland,” Terra Nova, where many Scots immigrated to, because it reminded them of their homeland. Maybe, Johnny will put my song to music, but while I wait, I will sing my song of Cape Breton to all those who wish to connect with my feelings about Down-home.

      What a thoughtful, heartfelt and true account of your roots and love for our Island. I left in 1973 and came to Toronto, also in search of the elusive warmth of my culture. It was a please to read your letter of two years ago, and I thought it right to say hello, being a fellow Caper who left to seek my fortune in the big city. I can never be thankful enough for the experience I had growing up in Cape Breton, and for the love of Island, my family and the wonderful people back home who really made my fortune for me, made me who I am.
