Choosing to believe

by Linda Wegner on 10/23/17

What’s a body to believe these days? Between fake news, privacy breaches and rampant social media on the loose, knowing what’s worth believing is sometimes anything but easy to discern. Believing the right things is vital, however, be they matters of daily living, politics, faith or a host of other things. Read more...

What's Inside?

As I write, I like millions of other Canadians, are preparing to or are already celebrating Thanksgiving Day. It’s an annual event, a day officially dedicated to remembering all the blessings that we enjoy as individuals and as a nation. Read more...

Things best tossed out

by Linda Wegner on 09/28/17

It’s time,” I told myself, “it’s time you got rid of some stuff.”
For a number of years we’d moved frequently, meaning many of our belongings remained packed away. For someone who prefers to be surrounded by the multitude of gifts, mementos and souvenirs collected during a lifetime, it was a trial. I wanted my things out of the boxes and in full view.

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.

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.
