So Long, Vancouver

A friend, a creative sort of person (beautiful woodwork, photography) just e-mailed me recently to ask how I was doing on the Island. Funny, I had not thought til that e-mail to compare...
I am doing well, in a funny sort of way. My lungs seem to be releasing alot of stuff lately-living in a no traffic versus a high traffic location might have something to do with it-fresh sea air must be shocking to my poor abused lungs-but now they seem to be fighting back-not struggling to do their job, but to rid themselves of all that city smog. When you already have asthma, that can only be a good thing.
Of course, now that I'm here and not 'employed', I have the time and leisure to be more creative, and so I am. Also signing up for craft fairs left, right and center-time to center myself and realize that too much is just that-nothing exceeds like excess.
What do I miss, if anything? The ethnic food mostly, Vancouver has such an abundance of great, inexpensive places to eat that it seems like I'm really deprived here-on the other hand, Ladysmith has possibly the best pizza I've ever had, so...
We all adapt, and the pros so far completely outweigh the cons.
If you ever decide to run away to a lush Island , you could do worse than this one.
