Meeting together

by Linda Wegner on 11/25/20

I (and a lot of other people) am groaning today, “Oh, if we only could go to church tomorrow, I miss my friends!” Here in British Columbia, as well as in many parts of Canada and, I assume around the world, all social gatherings are banned (unless the folks involved live in the same house as you do). It’s probably one of the toughest parts of this pandemic scenario, at least for me. Thankfully I can still go walking at our local high school track and say “hi” to my friends from several lanes away. Read more...

What is it?

by Linda Wegner on 11/16/20

If these past months of COVID-enforced semi-isolation have done anything, they’ve created in me an addiction to crossword puzzles. And, if doing crossword puzzles has reminded me of anything, it’s that words have various functions. (I’ve also gained a new understanding of why the English language is considered one of the most challenging in the world.) Noun? Verb? Adjective? All potential uses for one word. Read more...

Please don't let us forget

November 11, like the rest of 2020, will definitely feel and be different; one thing however, will never cease to be a matter of utmost importance. Remembrance Day. Read more...

When everything moves

by Linda Wegner on 11/07/20

To say this has been a somewhat unusual week is an understatement of significant implications. There, how’s that for an impressive first statement? Put in simpler language, it’s been a tough year, tough seven months and for me, an unexpectedly tough week. Pull up your chair, grab a coffee or tea and see if you agree. Read more...

Time to give thanks

by Linda Wegner on 10/30/20

If ever we’d had an unusual Thanksgiving holiday weekend, it was this year. While we traditionally celebrated with three families (son and family, nephew and his wife and Hubby and I), this year the meals were spread out over the weekend. As wonderfully delicious as ever, it just seemed so odd to be restricted in this way. Read more...

The Powell River Blog
Over the past number of months I made the decision to formally retire from my business activities; having said that, I will retain my company name Words of Worth and will continue writing for a select number of rural weeklies and a monthly agricultural magazine. A weekly inspirational article appearing on this page is also emailed to a number of readers. To be added to this email list, contact me at

As so many others know by experience, retiring doesn’t mean quitting and I’ve decided to put my expendable energies into volunteer work as well as promoting the city and area where I live. I’ll begin with what was recently seen in front of my office window.
A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. These views are from my office and kitchen windows.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
