Love Is Love
The bounty from Victoria's Pride Parade, 2018 In the late 70's I took a trip to San Francisco by myself. Truth be known, I was following someone there, otherwise I would never have traveled so far alone back then. That's another story, but you can find out ...

I Can Hear You Think!
NOT my new hearing aids... I remember my poor old Uncle George often fussing with his big, chunky hearing aids, trying to adjust the sound up or down, still struggling with the conversation going on around him. During the second World War, his hearing had b...

Update: Two years later, I have not had another episode of atrial flutter, for which I am grateful. However, I have developed a-fib or atrial fibrillation, so I am trying to get myself another ablation for that. It's not so easy this time! They want to put me on medications instead! I will keep up the good fight. And for any of you dealing with this affliction, there is a wonderful community called MyAfibExperience.org which has a great forum where you can support and be supported by others with the same condition. The Heart Of The Matter continues!

Oh, Canada
Of all of the places I recently traveled in Europe, one of the most exciting sights for me to see was in the picture on the left. What? No Eiffel Tower? No Big Ben? No Little Mermaid? Versailles? Juno Beach? Stonehenge? Oh, yes, I loved all of those histori...

Furusākuru (Full Circle)
More than 65 years ago, my mother embarked on quite an adventure when she boarded the Danish hospital ship Jutlandia for a year-long tour to Pusan, Korea during the Korean War. I've told a bit of my mother's story  before and awhile back, I even found a You...

Ignore the Gift Guilters!
I have a guitar student for whom the madness begins sometime in September. She has to start ordering stock for her small retail business then, in preparation for Christmas. For her, as for many small businesses, Christmas is a make or break deal. I haven't ...

The Light Gets In
I must have been just conscious enough to hear the ping on my iPad, which was on the night table beside my bed. I knew what it meant. Ugh. It was one of the news organisations I was subscribed to announcing the winner of the U.S. election. And I knew who th...
