CRA Phone Scam

I just got a SCAM call from a robocaller claiming to be from the CRA.

Female robot voice:
"This message is from Canada Revenue Agency. The very second you receive this message, I mean you, or retained attorney of record, to return the call. My name is Alice Johnson and hotline to my division is 613-900-6651. I repeat, the hotline to my division is 613-900-6651. Do return the call before any legal allegation takes place against you. Goodbye and take care."

I won't be calling back.

Ferry

We do not need a ferry.
Swim into the Strait of Georgia and meet me in the middle. You will easily find me. Look for splashing porpoises and calm water.
But what would happen if either of us crossed the midway point? The Point of No Return into the other's life and land-based existence?
I follow my heart and my instincts always.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both 
And be one traveler, long I stood 
And looked down one as far as I could 
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 

Then took the other, as just as fair, 
And having perhaps the better claim, 
Because it was grassy and wanted wear; 
Though as for that the passing there 
Had worn them really about the same, 

And both that morning equally lay 
In leaves no step had trodden black. 
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, 
I doubted if I should ever come back. 

I shall be telling this with a sigh 
Somewhere ages and ages hence: 
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— 
I took the one less traveled by, 
And that has made all the difference.
