“Write the stories of the mountains you have climbed because they may become a page in someone else’s survival handbook.”
Welcome to my mostly, but not purely, memoir blog of personal essays and thank you for visiting! To contact me please either leave a comment on the platform or email firstname.lastname@example.org
These 100 anecdotes are all from fifty-five years of life and are about many things: challenges; choices; funny times; rants; loves; embarrassing moments; stuff that moves, frustrates or saddens me. There are stories from all over Canada, The Canadian Army, Military College, growing up on a lake in the summer at a place we call ‘the Camp‘. First jobs, adventures, heart-break, family life and funny times and even illness. Travel in Central America with our four-year old, Australia, India and Nepal and finding our current wonderful little Nova Scotian town. There is even some pretty serious stuff like health, helpful tips and guest posts of poetry and loss.
And, stay tuned, there will be many more stories to come.

Photos on this blog:
There is a mixture of google images, Pinterest and a several photos taken by family and friends and me. The header photo of the daisies is from my sister Eva. She says:
‘I am happy to share this picture that was taken in 2004. There was a never seen before, and never since, daisy showing that year. All the open land spaces were filled with daisies. They covered the fields like a white, shimmering blanket. Here is a shot that came from that time.’
