Back when my father was still alive, three generations of our family would visit Fulton's Pancake House, Pakenham, Ontario in the early spring when the maple tree sap was running. Today, only K and I were there.
But the place was just like many years ago. There were the young families with their babies and toddlers in tow, the grandparents who were happy to fuss over the little ones, and young lovers who dreamed of a possible future together.
十年樹木，百年樹人 .... It takes time but the disappearing older generations are being replenished by new ones.
