BIRTHDAY - JUNE 28, 2022

BIRTHDAY - JUNE 28, 2022 -
BY BERNARD BUJOLD -
Today, Tuesday 28 June, is my birthday, edition 2022! 
Thank you all for your good wishes! 
Every year I like to mark my birthday with a theme and this year it's a look at my life as I have published a collection of my life philosophies: THE OLD MAN, and I am recounting some of the adventures I have had, so far. 
I also recently discovered that a famous person was born like me on June 28, Elon Musk (Tesla, SpaceX, Twitter). Elon is a creation of 1971 and his destiny has of course taken on a different scope, let's say, than that taken on by my destiny. To mark our common birth date, I gave myself Elon Musk's bedside book: THE MOON IS A HARSH MISTRESS, a fiction by Robert A. Heinlein. 
Thanks again for the good wishes and let's never forget that life is a series of journeys!

THE OLD MAN - June 28, 2022

THE OLD MAN by Bernard Bujold - 
 "Life is like a book with characters and actions and each person has a story... " 
 I wrote seven other texts about the adventures of my life between 1977 and 2021, the first ones in paper format, but all the texts are accessible in the bilingual internet collection on Google, in French and in English: A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO DIE. 
 I present here, in 2022, a new text which is a summary of my main thoughts on life and some anecdotes about my adventures: THE OLD MAN. This book is a sort of conclusion to my other texts in the collection. I wanted this book to be of its time and in this sense it is published exclusively on the digital platform of Google and free in PDF format. 
A book remains a text and its format must reach as many readers as possible. Virtual distribution gives access to an infinite number of readers. It is always possible to print the PDF on paper if you want an archival copy. I was inspired in my choice of the virtual platform by the major media, including The Wall Street Journal, of which I have been a daily reader since the age of 20. Here in Canada, the WSJ is no longer available in paper format since 2021, due to the coronavirus crisis. At first I was completely lost but after a few months I had forgotten how to read on paper and was a convert to virtual. Many other media around the world including La Presse in Montreal have also adopted virtual exclusivity and they all seem to be surviving well and better. 
 I dedicate this text to my two grandchildren, Ava and Emma, and to my two children, David-Bernard and Stéphanie. 
Enjoy reading...

MONTREAL TRIATHLON 2022 - THE VISIT LEAVES...

MONTREAL TRIATHLON 2022 - THE VISIT LEAVES... -
By Bernard Bujold -
The valiant Ulysses is very proud of his suggestion! Indeed, as early as Friday morning (June 24), when he saw the first races of the Montreal Triathlon 2022 invading the streets of Old Montreal, he convinced his master and friend to leave for the beach until Sunday evening... 
When we returned to the city on Sunday (June 26) around 8:00 pm, the trucks were loading the metal barriers and the streets were open again. 
Who said that the most pleasant part of the visit is when it leaves... 
Long live the "end" of the Montreal Triathlon 2022!
