Taking time to vote
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been intrigued, annoyed, confused, exhilarated, or/and enraged by politics. Even as a teen I recall curling up on the bed or chesterfield where I would put my ear close to the radio and listen to any political broadcast that could be reached with our economy-sized Motorola®. Read more...

Fear, power and love
I don’t know about you, but my decades-old habit of following local, national and international news is quickly vanishing. Frankly, I’m just sick of hearing about fighting, wars, and now, at least here in Canada, sniping by politicians as our federal election comes up in October. Wouldn’t it be lovely if there was a regular broadcast of all things positive, uplifting and encouraging? Read more...

Watch for the little things
As many of my readers (and editors!) already know, recently I was without power to my computer for the better, or worst, part of the week. It was both frustrating and soul-searching. I felt so helpless when it came to submitting my article to a number of newspapers and independent readers but I can also say that by the time the fourth day had passed, a sense of serenity ruled in the house. No more interrupting any and all tasks in order to check email, etc. Never have so many crossword puzzles been done in so short a time. Read more...

Why not dance!
"Life may not be the party we hoped for... but while we are here we might as well dance." Now that's just about the best advice I've heard in a long time but having said that, it's not always that easy. Read more...

Overcoming the obstacle
If you're like me (and everybody else), you either have, are or will face obstacles that can seem overwhelming. This week I was so blessed to both read and hear encouraging words of Scripture pertaining to that very subject. Read more...

Busy with joy
 I've always been a busy person. There's really no other way to describe my decades-long lifestyle: busy, busy, busy and loving it. For the last several years, however, I've stopped operating as a technical writing business, stopped (for health reasons) a number of volunteer activities and most difficult of all, stopped doing all my housework by myself. I admit it's not been easy, this not being busy business. Read more...

Altogether wins it!
For all of the more than five decades we've been married, Ed and I have enjoyed playing board games. Out of respect for trade marks and their legal implications, I won't name any but one of our favourites involves lining up numbers in sequence. Read more...

Thoughts on cutting the grass
This week I've been thinking a lot about grass. No, not that kind and no, I have not been imbibing, inhaling or sniffing any foreign substance. Rather, my thoughts have been with each of those individual blades that comprise our green and brown lawn. Look at it this way: for a few months each year, lawns are expected to look good. They are raked, fertilized, aerated and watered and in general, primed to outgrow the neighbour's plot of ground. If you want to be an example to the neighbourhood, remember that looking good requires a lot of effort. Read more...
