What do I give?
Now that Christmas is just days ahead, last minute gift ideas are becoming a matter of priority. The out-of-province deliveries were mailed early, prompted by the then looming postal strike but now I'm wrestling with these last few but important decisions. By mutual agreement, spending limits are already set so that's not the issue; rather, it's significance to the recipient that matters. Read more...

Shine on, Christmas lights!
I've just returned from Winnipeg after attending the funeral of a precious family member; sad as the occasion was, the deep sense of love and family unity warmed the heart, easing the pain. In a seeming mood of condolence, even the "Winterpeg" weather behaved better than usual. In fact, instead of the characteristically cruel cold of December, sunshine and slightly below zero temperatures prevailed. Ironically, I returned home to the West Coast to sunshine and below zero temperatures rather than to the usual rain and grey skies. I needed that light and at this point I feel as if I also need Christmas celebrations to keep both my thoughts and responsibilities focused on blessing others. Read more...

Doing it well
Over the past several decades I've had the privilege of having these inspirational articles published in a number of weekly newspapers. As well, a number of magazines (I honestly don't remember how many) have assigned and paid for articles they've published. When I found it necessary to further supplement our family income, a friend providentially offered to train me to work with him for a company specializing in the research and writing of market investment reports. There's no need to further elaborate but I consider myself richly blessed to have had these opportunities. But, like any worthwhile activity, there's a lot goes on in the background; here's a microscopic peek at that. Read more...

​Exactly the right word
Since I formally semi-retired from my writing career, I've developed a genuine enjoyment of doing crossword puzzles. Where I formerly used my pen and pencil to jot down notes for stories, articles or research work, I now keep a pencil, eraser and game book close by. I'm not sure why I rarely do other types of posers but the thrill of finding exactly the right word to fit into the right space intrigues me. Beginner versions of the game are easier but as the level of difficulty increases, so do the options. Read more...

Here, take these
Halloween took place several weeks ago and though I freely admit that it's not one of my favourite nights of the year, I always make sure we have goodies to hand out and I wear a big smile along with my regular duds to welcome visitors. And visitors we have!

Pausing to remember
This month our country commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. I wasn't around for that but around the world, millions of people who hoped and longed for a war-free world, celebrated. Sadly, it was not to be and just a few years later our soldiers found themselves involved in yet more hostilities. Read more...

For this season – or reason
Though not always the same scenario nor the results one hopes for, sometimes a multitude of circumstances and events just seem to come together. That's how it's been for me this week. Read more...
