Galiano Island, an hour’s ferry ride from Vancouver, is about as far from Israel as you can get. Traffic jams there mean two cars on the road; stress comes from wondering whether you’ll catch another glimpse of the whales cavorting in the waves on any given day. Not that there are many waves in that part of the Pacific; the bays surrounding the islands are predictably peaceful.

I recently heard a Canadian writer describing his homeland as a country in a coma; if that’s true, we should probably all knock ourselves out. Comas can be pretty.
