Doing it well

by Linda Wegner on 11/26/18

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.

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

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. The photos above are courtesy of Sean Percy, outdoor enthusiast and scuba diver.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
