Meeting together
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?
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
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
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...

Keeping them in mind
Years ago, we knew a young fellow who used to love to say grace before meals. No matter how briefly or fervently he prayed he always added this comment: “And dear God, help our food to turn to energy and not fat”. As you may have guessed, his family was dedicated to staying slim and fit. I have no doubt that if they have kept up their routine, their persistence has ensured that his prayers were answered. Read more...

Power of conjunctions
Lately I’ve been mulling over the power of a number of specific kinds of words known as conjunctions. These seven short words, “for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so” can change the entire meaning of a statement. Read more...

Don't bite back
After a few fog-and smoke-free days, it’s disappointing to see smoke from California wildfires returning this week. On a totally unrelated matter, this morning I met a former “bus riding buddy” who lamented that he is unable to visit relatives since the First Nations Reserve shut down entrance to all non-residents. Read more...
