Keep counting

by Linda Wegner on 01/25/21

Compliments come in all sizes and forms: genuine or insincere; solicited or spontaneous; or, an accolade meant to produce a smile. Read more...

Learning to count

by Linda Wegner on 01/18/21

Counting sounds awfully mundane at times but in this week's article I note that it is important to our mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Count bless and count well! Read more...

So worth remembering

by Linda Wegner on 01/12/21

Now close to the middle of a new month and into a new decade, I’ve begun seeking out, duplicating and sorting out pictures I have collected over the years. Of particular interest was an aged (almost as aged as I am) picture of me and my oldest brother. If I’m correct that picture was snapped in about 1947. It’s brown and white and faded now but it’s still very legible. Sounds a bit like me except that I’m grey now. Read more...

Well, folks, it’s that time again. As we bid farewell to this year and this decade, I for one find it easy to put 2020 behind us.

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.
