I took over 550 pictures today, which hopefully says it all. My friend Alaina has been the most amazing host and has not only spoiled me with insider advice, but has also driven me all over the place to the most remarkable sights of Lewis. Rather remarkably for the vegetarian that I am, I’ve also […]

where the hearth is

There’s a house at the northeastern edge of Scotland, across the Moray Firth, about three quarters of a mile outside the small Highland town of Dornoch. My father grew up in this house, and my grandfather kept it on until he died, and my father’s brother moved back in. I’ve been coming to this place […]

A Slow, Painful Death Would Be Too Good For You (and other observations)

The SNC-Lavalin ruckus isn’t really about SNC-Lavalin—it’s about Justin. Gather around, boys and girls, as once again I pull my granddad pants up into my armpits and hook my Walter Brennan thumbs behind my suspenders. I’ve just awakened from my forty-eight hour afternoon nap, which is why I’m so annoyingly perky, and though the time […]

You know what really pisses me off? The mentality that just because something is “mainstream,” it’s immediately bad. As much as I love the “alternative” universe, I understand that plenty of the things which become popular with the masses are also pretty awesome. Just to prove my point, here’s a gigantic list of things which […]

Hiatus – “a pause or break in continuity in a sequence or activity” A hiatus can be a wonderful thing. It can be some much needed time away from something to gather ourselves, rekindle a love for something or regain focus when there is a lack of clarity. For me, I sickened myself with show […]

We all have a story. Whether we choose to share it or not is another matter. Following mum’s death I started to write about her, and our, struggle with dementia. It helped but I didn’t ever envisage sharing my writings. A friend who I trust and rely on always, told me about ‘Company of Others‘ […]

I seem to have had a breakthrough with being able to read my knitting during this project. Maybe down to the chunky yarn, meaning the stitches are easier to see.
