From Inuvik to a new Rick going beyond North of 60. It’s the Inuvik Sunrise Festive in the heart of the Arctic Circle. Special thanks to the Town of Inuvik, First Air, Firefox Fire Solutions (for the warm clothes), and SONiC 1029.
Instead of watching the film, Frozen, please do yourself a favour and experience the true north, strong, and free of Inuvik, North West Territories. At this time of the year, I usually focus my time and energy on reviewing the annual Golden Globe Awards, but a once in a lifetime opportunity literally landed on my lap: a trip to the Sunrise Festival. The true stars in this world are those who, after 30 days in the darkness, celebrate the light back to a town that was born in 1953. A habitat so rich in culture, heritage, and stories galore, darkness could not dampen the spirit of a people that consists of an abundance of honour for their land and love for each other. From a people that are usually oppressed with either prejudice or politics, one only has to look, listen, and experience the compassion and community of the Inuvialuits. It left a mark on my life, and it also left frost bite on my nose and left ear. The people beat to a different drum, and that beat should resonate in all of us.
Happy New Year and welcome to the written version of my ‘selfie’. Thanks again for listening to the 2013 Year in REViEW on The Countdown 2013 (and thanks for your patience on the name change in the middle of the year). Smaug appeared as I was piecing together the gold pieces of the past 365 days. It took me every day of the year to produce and research, and I’m hoping you win the Playstation 4 courtesy of The Shopping Channel. The Countdown will return on January 4th. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you can always email me at email@example.com. Before we foresee 2014, here’s ‘The Best of 2013’.
FOR AULD LANG SYNE,
MY DEAR, FOR AULD LANG SYNE,
WE’LL TAKE A CUP O’ KINDNESS YET,
FOR AULD LANG SYNE
