It's Good to be Trumped
I was about eight or
nine years old and curious about the world in many ways that should
have been left to their own devices. When I was young, we
lived on a street that backed onto a forest. I've been back to that
neighbourhood since then and it's complete...

Mind Your Elders
Family gatherings,
whatever the reason, tend to reveal a lot about who you are, where
you've been and where you may be going. (Where you are going is always a choice.) I looked around a
crowded room at my family and friends recently and was struck by how

A short while ago I

Sault Ste Marie and some other folks in North Bay. During the eight

whatever detail is needed in the moment to make people laugh or cry
or gape in awe. We c...

Faceless
I want to meet Juan
Valdez and ask him why my coffee was crap this morning. We used to know who
made our stuff. I was reading a book
called “Glass, Paper, Beans” by Leah Hagar Cohen. I've never read
her stuff before, yet the book compelled me to pick it up ...

Common Sense with Bears
During
my recent trip to the hinterlands of Northern Ontario, I met a bear. Before I go further
regarding the bruin, the “Hinterlands” of Northern Ontario are
much more civilized than our southern cousins give credit and there
are quite a few people in that...

Life is Fair
I did it to myself. Oh,
I won't ever say the reaction by the other person was ever my doing,
because it wasn't. Their reaction is always their choice. However, my
choice of putting myself in a particular situation is always my doing and I have to own up to ...

Resolve not to Resolve
New Year's is not one of
those things I go out of my way to celebrate. Certainly not in any
currently traditional manner. When I was young, I was
told Christmas was for kids and New Year's Eve was for adults. Naturally, as I grew older and became what is le...
