Just imagine a place where Granny is a queen
What’s that, George?
You wonder, do you? You wonder whether we have Grannies who are treated like Queens in New Brunswick?
Not exactly … You might say that Grannies have been the heroines … Errr that is the same as heroes … Don’t you know? …
Taking up the slack … Doing so much work … unpaid unsung and unknown … Hmmm … The Grannies might say … Somebody has got to do it otherwise it won’t get done …
What it is like … Living in New Brunswick … an NB lifer
What if all those good kind Grannies of New Brunswick were to go on strike? Who would raise the funds for all those organizations that bring hope to communities?
Would taxes go up because government had to hire more staff to take care of people in hospitals … Feed people in homeless shelters … Would there be more old folks falling out of windows in special care homes?
And who would cook the meals and nurture the grandkids while mum is off to work or school?
And who would play music in the homes and churches? Who would provide respite care for an invalid spouse or aging parent? Who would spend countless hours in a palliative ward?
Well George … Where do you suppose we find heroes … A Hero Job Fair … Where else?
No such thing as a Heroes Job Fair? Are you sure? Well maybe there should be …
As an example … over but not out …
What about jobs in Canada? Good jobs … Honest jobs.
What do you mean! There must be some good honest jobs somewhere in Canada.
Well of course We need heroes in government … No that is not an oxymoron, George. Whether in government or in Rock Operas … We need heroes.
What sort of Rock Opera could there possibly be without heroes?
Can an artist or author be a hero do you think … And still get paid … In Canada or are we still expected to … OK … Nuf said …
Thinking … Maybe what we need first … A good lawyer with a sharp pair of scissors … Oh yes … With acting experience.
A manual … Do we have an operator’s manual for lawyers.
Good question .
Teamworkers? One might have Hope that heroes can work
together … That is what we need … real teamwork.
So … Tentative Plan of action …
1. Peruse the lawyer manual while conducting a search for a dedicated and talented … Oh yes … Honest lawyer … That was not funny, George. Mind your tongue.
2. Start building a potential list of artists and techies.
3. Flesh out the script.
4. Start planning the time-schedule.
Suppose that will do for now George? Hmmmmm seems we are going to be too busy to end our partnership for a bit … Huh George?
