Chili, short for Chilcotin, is a well-known long time canine community member. She was adopted from the BCSPCA as a pup and she’s been calling Fernie home for the past 13 years. Back in the day, Chili used to start almost every morning by trotting over to her neighbours’ houses and jumping on their beds so she could sleep in with them. Mornings have never been her thing. 

This is a distinctive time in all of our lives. Very few people alive today have lived through a global pandemic before now, and certainly none of the currently pregnant or newly pregnant people have. We are all navigating this together and for the very first time so we don’t know whether or not there is a “right” or “best” way to do it and if there is, what that might be.

Whether we are aware of it or not, movement is a form of medicine and staying active helps reduce stress and anxiety. Getting your heart rate up and sweating once a day releases the feel good endorphins that I’m going to go ahead and say, we could probably all use right about now. 

This issue about community is the perfect time to present two challenges to the community that centre on being vulnerable and allowing ourselves to see and be seen with others.

There is a spot on the Old Growth Trail heading up to Island Lake Lodge where the cedars make a perfect circle. If you connect your body to the pine needles on the ground and quiet your mind you can lose yourself in the sound of a nearby creek and sight of swaying trees towering over you. It is a magical place and living proof that nature is therapy. 

The wonderful cooking duo, Becky and Corbs are at it again. This time with a special Easter edition. Have you ever made Hot Cross Buns?

As much as I love all of the seasons, spring holds a special place in my heart. A time of year that signifies new growth, fresh starts and warmer days. The magical time of year when for many, spending longer durations outside becomes possible.

I had planned to write an article about trying to be greener when it comes to the products you put in and on your body, the way you consume and dispose of goods in your home, as well as examine options in health care for being a little more green. All of this has become really challenging when we are going through a pandemic.
