The surf fisherman is braced against a Pacific that shows off its facets of color.Shades of blue, into the horizon.
Blue riding the horizon.
Bill Seavey is a big thinker and probably a bit of a visionary. Full disclosure here-Bill is a friend, fellow tennis player and a Cambria author.
He asks -What do Americans know about Canadians?
What do Canadians know about Americans?
Seavey says "Most of us view Canadians as quasi-Americans." He unpacks the idea in a new book about how Americans and Canadians can "understand each other-and work together-better."
In his newest book he explores the combined potential of the two nations as a real North American superpower. Seavey says we "have cultural and historical differences that aren't easily reconciled or fully understood."
Seavey notes a CBS poll that indicated nearly a fifth of Americans would consider moving to Canada if either Trump or Clinton were elected.
He says an economic union is not likely soon. He interviews a number of Canadians who help him paint a portrait of the US as seen from north of the border.
It is a fascinating look at American-Canadian ties and he posits interesting considerations.
Bill Seavey is a journalist and does a great job of posing questions, exploring avenues and engaging thought.
Americandada? will be published in February 2017. A Kindle edition will be available in November.
