Just Like a Cloudy Sunrise

Many a day this winter I have woken to find a cloudy morning outside the glass. I’ll get up anyhow, resolved to walk the shore, and moments later I’m in pants, toque, and a jacket, out the door. Living by the ocean is a gift most of us in this area cherish, but we have to live […]

In The Wake of the Storm: Thoughts on Life

It’s the weeks where we feel beaten down before Monday begins that are the hardest to face, eh? This morning’s rife with the turmoil of a good Pacific storm. A lot of wind and rain. As is usually the case, a good windstorm means a blue sky’s on its heels. I literally see both from my […]
