July 1 is right around the corner. I challenge everyone to think of their nationalism & what it means to be that nationality. How Canadian is that! I started a challenge on the Canadian Circle chat to create something Canadian & it sort-of sparked a loose topic of what is Canadian art. What makes something Canadian? If you do a google images search, Emily Carr & other Canadian artists come up with native graphics, red & white graphics, Maple leafs, Hockey, Beavers, Moose. Canadian pride is so different from our American neighbors. Unless you are watching a hockey game with a Canadian team involved, then there seems to be a lot more excitement! The Winter 2010 Olympics inspired some patriotism, but that was winter & it fades in the short burst of greenery summer brings.
