I’m in the process of changing my website and I’m no techie so the progress is slow and a little daunting. I’m trying to make it easier on your (my) eyes and maybe simpler to find your way around. But is it simple for me to find my way around the area that allows me to customize the pages or create new widgets or, or, or…? Not yet.

In the meantime, let’s celebrate the big-leaf maple, so beautiful right now. Let’s celebrate the Kwanzan cherry out the back door, filled with sunlight this afternoon.


Last night I had two nightmares, filled with imagery so terrifying that I was afraid to sleep again. I know it was because I watched the election news. Things could have been a lot worse, that’s for certain, but they also could have been a lot better. Our planet deserves our care and attention and I’m afraid the climate emergency won’t receive the focus that it requires at this point in our history. So we’ll do what we can. Look at the trees, dig out the garlic bed, and share breakfast with this loud companion who is waiting by the sliding doors every morning.

  1. Theresa, this is wonderful! So much easier to read for the aging eye, even perhaps for the non-aging one. I do think all parties, except of course the Cons, are now aware that the climate is the issue of our time. Let’s hope. The outcome could have been so much worse.

    1. Thanks, Beth. Yes, I know it could have been so much worse. We were in Ottawa during the last election (we voted early) and although I didn’t vote Liberal, I was not unhappy with the results. I had fairly high hopes and was prepared to be positive! But I’ve been very disappointed at the broken promises, the pipeline purchase, the decision to appeal the ruling on compensation for Indigenous kids (who face so many systemic disadvantages to begin with…). I was glad the Liberals won, yes, but I wish they were more progressive and more ethical. Let’s hope minority status works as it can work, has worked in B.C.; it means people have to talk and work together with less posturing than otherwise might be the case. I’d love it if Sheer melted, like the Wicked Witch of the West.
