Learning to Apologize

There are a few key parenting mindsets that I build each of my monthly articles around. If you’ve been reading this column for a while you will see some repeating themes – integrity (walking our talk), taking the long view instead of getting caught up in daily struggles, and seeing things from a teenager’s perspective.

Building a Mystery

Last year I bought my first real camera; a lightly-used digital SLR. For years I had heard terms like ‘exposure’ and the ever-mysterious ‘f-stop,’ but they remained abstract concepts—the secret language used by photographers to work their magic.

Sun’s Out, Guns Out

Attempting to do most of my physical activity outdoors becomes rather easy with help of great weather and warm temperatures. Fitness friends and I often use the term ‘Sun’s Out, Guns Out’ when planning workouts during the summer months and find the term incredibly fitting as they often entail short bursts of high intensity work combined with slower strength focused movements.

Wifi Calling

While most of us haven’t been travelling much lately, many of us have occasion to be out of our normal calling area and need to make calls. Normally, not a big deal, but what if you have to make a bunch of long-distance calls?

Reconnecting the Rockies

If you drive enough on a provincial highway, it seems inevitable you will collide with an animal some day. And it seems everyone has a story of a near-miss, or a collision, with wildlife while driving at high speeds. Animals killed in collisions at the side of the road are commonplace along our highways.

Be Uncomfortable

We do not develop six packs or becomes a marathon runners without sore muscles along the way. Similarly, we cannot gain strength in our mental health without processing pain, sadness, and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. The past few months of 2020 have certainly prompted discomfort as we learned to live in new ways and sat with our thoughts and feelings about the world and the humans who inhabit it.

A Pain In The Neck

None of us want our dogs to be uncomfortable after all and yet they can’t tell us so we just go on without knowing. Veterinarians are starting to suggest that neck injuries could be contributing to certain symptoms and even misinterpretation.

Michael Bull

This May, as we watched people take to the streets around the world to protest racism and police brutality, our little mountain town may have felt… quiet. But the reality is, the energy and rage was mounting. An impressive number of businesses and residents took part in #blackouttuesday, stepping away from social media, augmenting the stories and voices of those who need to be heard, showing they want to be an ally and part of the solution.

But I’m Great At Many Other Things

When I first met Rachel Behan she was at ease, definitely shining, and moving through time and space on a wavelength that suited me perfectly. I came to learn (her accent, a melodic and effervescent Manchester dialect) that she worked as a nanny and simply adored living in Fernie.
