The Path Less Traveled

The Path Less Traveled

I have always been an individual who loves to explore and wander down paths no one could tell me much about.  The less I knew about it, the more the desire burned inside me to venture in that direction.  From the very young age of wandering miles from town, through muddy fields to build secret […]

Cha Cha Changes…

Cha Cha Changes…

I can’t believe it’s the middle of June and I’m only writing about what was likely one of the biggest days of my life.  This statement is filled with so much irony because over five years ago my ex-wife asked me for a divorce, and two months ago I married the woman I will spend […]

Practicing Gratitude

Practicing Gratitude

Recently I’ve had the opportunity to take a little road trip through six states and two provinces with my parents.  It’s truly been a blessing to be able to do so as my father is seventy-one and my mother turns sixty-six this week.  I know they’re not by any means old, nor are they unhealthy, […]

A Christmas Story

I would like to take this evening to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and share my favorite Christmas story of all time.  I’ve heard it many times already and it brings tears to my eyes each time I hear it.  I hope all of you enjoy it as much as I do as it […]

It’s That Time!

It’s That Time!

Well it’s that time of year again folks!  The joys and tribulations of decorating the house, hanging ornaments, climbing on the roof to put up your Christmas lights.  For some this is one giant headache one must suffer through for only a few weeks of satisfaction.  I would certainly agree that it is a lot […]

Lest We Forget

As far back as my memory serves me, which seems to be getting less as I grow older, I can remember pausing on November 11th to honor those who fought for our country.  Whether I was in high school in Saskatchewan, University in Ottawa, or standing in line at the grocery store, the people around […]

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Ah yes Halloween!  The day the ghosts and goblins are free to play and create mischief.  The day some people turn their lights out and disappear for the evening, so they won’t have to hand out candy to every child and teenager in the neighborhood.  Yes it’s true, many people actually don’t care for the […]

Get Lost

Get Lost

“Getting lost is a good way to find yourself.” – Anonymous This past weekend my fiancee and I shared in another favorite pastime of the fall season.  We spent our afternoon getting lost in a field of corn.  The creation of Edmonton’s Corn Maze has been around since 2001 and is just one of a […]

Autumn Leaves

As I prepare for the arrival of Old Man Winter I can’t help but feel somewhat saddened and melancholic at the departure of summer.  The sun goes down by seven o’clock robbing me of those late evening summertime walks.  The mornings are dark and you wonder why your drive to work feels like the middle […]

Becoming a “Bunnock” Champion

Becoming a “Bunnock” Champion

I have been playing the game of Bunnock since a very early age.  The day I became strong enough to throw a Schmeiser the distance of the court was the day I played my first game.  Previous to that, my parents or relatives would let me walk half way up the court to throw a […]
