Home Décor For Nature Lovers March 16 2018, 1 Comment

“Slightly Ransacked” might be the best way to describe the look of our house. Some people call it “charming” or “eclectic,” but I know they’re only being kind. Clearly, I am quite unqualified to offer serious home décor tips. With that in mind, please consider the following post to be, not so much a design … Continue reading Home Décor For Nature Lovers

Dog’s Life and A New Year Wish December 31 2017, 0 Comments

May your 2018 be just like this. It’s just a quick photo, taken with my phone on a walk in the Seymour Demonstration Forest earlier this week. It captures one second in a dog’s life. In this moment, he is completely happy. He is with his people, in the woods, off-leash, with snow (Geordie’s favourite), … Continue reading Dog’s Life and A New Year Wish

Hug a Crow This Earth Day April 22 2016, 0 Comments

Not literally, of course. Crow hugging is fraught with peril at the best of times, but especially in spring when nesting season has them a bit tense. But I do suggest that you give the crow (or pick your favourite bird, plant, patch of moss or mollusk) a special thought today. It’s Earth Day so, ideally, … Continue reading Hug a Crow This Earth Day

Last Dawn of 2014 December 31 2014, 0 Comments

I took some time to appreciate the last dawn of 2014 – and such a dawn it was. After a festive season of heath challenges, it seems even more important that usual to appreciate the small things that are big. Being with family, good friends, health (it’s all relative), moments of quiet loveliness, every dawn, … Continue reading Last Dawn of 2014

What Did You Wonder Today? November 06 2014, 0 Comments

If you’re anything like me, the list goes along these lines: Why is my computer displaying that “fatal error” message? Where the heck did those extra cell phone charges come from? What should I pick up for tonight’s dinner? How soon, exactly, will the world arrive at hell in a hand basket? These are all very worthy concerns. … Continue reading What Did You Wonder Today?

The Blue Bird of Happiness October 17 2014, 1 Comment

May that blue bird of happiness sit on your shoulder as it sat on mine when (at last!) a member of the tricky and elusive Stellar’s Jay tribe took pity on me and posed for a portrait. I can’t really complain about the birds I’ve been able to photograph this summer. From the lovely little white crowned sparrows in … Continue reading The Blue Bird of Happiness

Joie De Vivre July 23 2014, 0 Comments

  Goal: To have as much fun as this robin at least once a day. How do you seek out those carefree moments? I love to head out into the back yard, or around my East Vancouver neighbourhood, camera in hand and mind open to whatever lovely thing comes along. I’d love to hear how you find your daily … Continue reading Joie De Vivre

In Defence of the Commonplace June 28 2014, 0 Comments

I was reading a blog the other day about “bucket lists” and how too many of us put off doing things on those lists, getting too caught up in the day to day to organize and save for that trek to Katmandu, or sailing trip around the world. In many ways I sympathize with the … Continue reading In Defence of the Commonplace
