Inside Architecture - Exploring Fernie’s Historical Interiors

Fernie’s historic buildings are well known for distinctive rooflines, unique locally-fired rose-gold brick and stone, and a variety of international influences. Only a few original interiors remain although many hints of the past can be seen in pressed tin ceilings, smoke-stained exposed brickwork and vintage windows.

Makers Gonna Make

Like sailing, the life of an artist, while attractive in many ways, can seem impractical before you embark. There is no clear way forward, there is no guarantee that it will lead to success no matter how you define it or any kind of stability.

October 2018 Astrology

October marks the beginning of an explosion of astrological aspects in which we will be creating new connections in our emotional life! Explosion is definitely the right word since some of these connections will require a force similar to the dynamite used to make new roads on solid rock!

Han Solo is one of the most popular and recognisable characters in the Star Warssaga. Unfortunately, this particular production has been fraught with behind the scenes drama, with the original directors being fired, and 70% of the movie having to be re-shot.

The Power to Share

Never stop asking, never stop listening, never stop learning, and never stop sharing. Knowledge is a kind of power, but it’s only when we share that power that we truly become a powerful people.
