I grew up in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada and I lived just two blocks north of Burnaby Lake Park. Along the North-West corner of the park, near Sperling Avenue, south of the railway tracks, there is an area where wild pink roses grow in great abundance. I remember during the early summer months, the air here would be thick with the scent of roses. Sometimes, this scent was overwhelming and yet amazingly beautiful and so different from other locations around the lake. This formed a strong childhood memory with me that never left me. I always see this location along the lake as a piece of heaven on earth and whenever driving by, it is the first memory to enter my mind.
