Many years ago, my Grade 4 teacher marked one of my assignments and wrote, “Keep writing and enjoying life.” For a while I forgot about her advice – I enjoyed life, but stopped writing. But now I’ve reached an age where memories are precious, especially memories of a heritage shared with others in beautiful Western Canada.

So this blog is my attempt to live out her advice by sharing stories painted with words. I hope they bring beauty and laughter to your day and spark your own precious memories.
