Last week I posted the following on my Facebook page:
“Do you remember when the thought of just staying home was so attractive? Having said that, it seems like years ago or that none of us had such a number of weeks and months in mind. Like you, I'm sure, some days are fine and others, well not so fine. I'm just thankful that I truly enjoy weeding. Oh yes, thankful that the drive-through at Tim Horton's remains open. Take care, stay safe and one of these days we'll just look back on it.” Read more...
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. A weekly inspirational article appearing on this page is also emailed to a number of readers. To be added to this email list, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.
