Renovate This!

(Excerpt from ‘The Marcy Street Irregulars and Other Fables’, my upcoming collection of life and mishaps in a small town) June is Brain Injury Awareness Month, also known around our house as the month my wife proves to the world that yes, in fact I was dropped on my head as a baby. Two Junes […]

I was thinking about beauty

I was thinking about beauty… I think about a lot of things actually, snippets of dreams and the such – over 200 in the past couple months in the wee app I wrote for just that purpose… 🙂 Beauty is indeed all around us, just waiting for one of our senses to discover it – a […]

Ocean

Oceans, straits, rivers, lakes – water is very important to my soul. I am not completely sure why, though growing up on an island probably had lots to do with it, eh? After completing ‘C’est Le Voyage’ something just seemed to be missing, like the ship (work in progress for sure…) was taking away from […]

One of the groups I work with is the South Bruce Tourism Committee, an ad hoc community group of volunteers (sponsored by / part of South Bruce Municipal Council), who work darned hard to promote local events and groups, new businesses, whatever it takes to get the word out. So in the continuation of my […]

We’ll Leave The Light On

Back in the weather service days every new weather observer in BC were stationed for two years in Dease Lake if married, or six months on Cape St. James if single. The Cape, as it was colloquially known, was a lighthouse and weather station perched on a rock at the extreme south end of Haida […]
