Parting is such sweet sorrow

  I hope that your summer has given you time to rest, reflect, and enjoy time with those who bring you joy. Mine was a balance between Leila time, work, and good company. Managed to find some time to do a little purging. Man, that is exhausting work. Built a shelf for Leila’s room, so [...]

Do you want to Cook for Me?

  It was always challenging growing up in a family with eight siblings to be the one to get to lick the stir spoon after Mom prepared her famous chocolate fudge icing for her even more famous chocolate fudge three-layer cake. Mmmmm.   All of us would line up at the kitchen table hoping that [...]

Share your wisdom with young people

This past week my connection to Lockerby  Composite School continued. I was asked to speak to a group of female students on the Power of Girls, a great honour. (Why does Lockerby remain a school of importance in my life? I didn’t teach there as a member of the school staff. Gary Orasi, one the [...]

The stories we tell

  Last fall the City of Greater Sudbury purchased Swansea Island in Ramsey Lake from private hands for $80,000. This little piece of land near Moonlight Beach has an interesting history.

Let children run not ‘roam’

  We thought it was really cute when one of Amelia’s first words was iPad. She said it around the same time that she started saying Dada and Illie (for her older sister Lily). And it really was cute when she said it in her very little girl voice, heavy with the accent of a [...]
