Lord did it rain

by Linda Wegner on 10/18/21

Lord, did it rain! So hard, in fact, that it’s hard to recall that just weeks ago we were praying for the wet stuff. Over this past weekend, at least here in coastal British Columbia, we’ve had the same amount of rain normally experienced in the month of October in just the past couple of days. Moderation seems to be out of style. Read more...

Remember me

by Linda Wegner on 10/12/21

Two things determined the theme of this week’s article; one of little importance to most people, the other, of great importance to many. Here’s what I wrote in response to the latter. Read more...

Blurred vision

by Linda Wegner on 10/04/21

I'm not sure when or where I found a small lapel pin. Small it is but so applicable in these days of masks and hidden facial features. Here's how it reads: "Hi, I can't remember your name either." Read more...

Time to rejoice

by Linda Wegner on 09/27/21

Well, this has been a time to remember - although in all honesty, I'd rather forget it. Between getting scammed, losing all records of my email addresses, and being threatened with having to buy a new computer, I've been stressed. On the other hand, it's also been a time of great gratitude and rejoicing. Huh? Here's why. Read more...

From my heart

Normally I have my theme pretty much worked out by Friday. Not this week. Actually, I’ve wrestled over and over with two main thoughts. First, I wrote about encouragement just a week or so ago and I don’t like to be repetitious; next and most challenging, I am going to attempt to address a current and to some, a most divisive event.

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.

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.
