Little things – Ice dream

Many things in life bring a smile to my face, but few create such a rich kaleidoscope of images as the sound of skates on ice. The raspy, fluid sound of the blades, as they carve into the surface of the ice on a cold winter’s night. Etched in my mind, Read More

Men can do it, why not us? Read More

Skydiving or parasailing may not be in your bailiwick, but that’s not a problem. Adventure doesn’t have to be big – just shake Read More

Little things – Hallowe’en delight

One of my favourite Hallowe’en memories happened a few years ago not at home greeting Trick or Treaters, but when traveling around the beautiful Eastern Townships in Quebec. It was in part a weekend getaway, but mostly a chance to Read More
