Silence

Walk by a park these days and you will hear something that you never used to hear years ago. Silence.

Artists

I met up with a good friend recently who is now retired and spends much of his time planting gardens and cultivating the beautiful property he is blessed to call home.

Accountability

Much of the wisdom we acquire in our lives comes from our own mistakes, but every once in awhile we’re given an opportunity to uncover a piece of our own puzzle through the lens of another. This week, while waiting for a friend in a grocery store parking lot, I was given such a gift. […]

Broken

In my early childhood one of my favourite things to do was colouring. I would spend hours on end carefully tracing inside the lines with a firm hand and then lightly shading the areas in between. I can still remember with great joy the day my parents bought me a deluxe box of crayons, with […]
