But then two things happened since I last politely nodded and smiled. Kingston was on The Amazing Race Canada which made me excited and then the lead singer for the iconic Canadian band The Tragically Hip, Gord Downie (Kingston native) passes away at 53 which made me sad.

The song is called “Bobcaygeon” and its the type of song that when I’m listening to it I just want to be left alone so I can think, reminisce, write, plan the future or just daydream.
