What can and can't be seen

by Linda Wegner on 09/14/20

I’m overwhelmed with all that’s going on, as are so many, and yet I find myself searching for a topic to write about this week. I did have a couple subjects in mind but looking back at my saved articles from the past six months, I see that I’ve already written about them. Dead end. Read more...

Waiting with confidence

by Linda Wegner on 09/08/20

Unless you’ve always lived a well-established routine that’s more closely resembled a rut than a schedule, you’ve probably created one in the past six months. I know I have. Read more...

Spreading dirt

Not sure where I picked up the muck, but there was plenty of it on the kitchen and hallway floors. I tried sweeping it up but to no avail. I tentatively picked up a piece of the sludge but still couldn’t identify exactly what it was or where it came from. I just know that it blemished my nice, clean floors. Read more...

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. These views are from my office and kitchen windows.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
