Another Walk in the Woods

May 8th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 8, 2017 - Today was my 50th birthday and I can't think of a better way to have spent it, out for a walk in the quiet forest with three people who mean the world to me. It was the last day my friends were out from Ontario and although we originally intended to [...]

A day in the mountains

May 7th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 7, 2017 - We are lucky to live where we do, not a day goes by that I don’t recognize that fact and feel grateful for it. And living between the Pacific ocean and the coastal mountain range is something that we are always only to happy to share with others, if for no [...]

Sail Past

May 7th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

May 6, 2017 - It’s been an interesting few days. Kirk told me to take a week off of work and I’d assumed we were to be going somewhere since it’s my birthday in a couple of days, except that I didn’t want to go far from home because of Loki and what’s been going [...]

Bicycle Day

April 19th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

"Bicycle Day is April 19, commemorating April 19, 1943, when Dr. Albert Hofmann first took LSD intentionally. Three days earlier, he had absorbed a small amount of the drug either through his fingertips or by accidentally ingesting it. On Bicycle Day, he took 250 µg of LSD intentionally and, fearing he had made himself ill, [...]

A Walk in the Woods

April 16th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

April 16, 2017 - The weather has just been atrocious so far this spring. March was officially the gloomiest on record with only three days free of rain, and April hasn’t fared much better so far. Honestly, I don't mind the rain, but it's just been a bit much this year so far. It reminds [...]

Game Night

March 6th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

  March 6, 2017 - Television is an isolating time waster. We plant ourselves in a comfortable seat, all face the same direction, and watch intently. We break the spell only briefly every twenty minutes or so (less if we are streaming video or watching prerecorded shows) for a snack, a bathroom visit, or to [...]

Sleeping Beauty and The Lamp

March 1st, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

March 2, 2017 - Meet Milo and Loki, if you haven’t already. Milo usually wants to get "in" the fireplace and so whenever we light it there is a battle of wills between cat and human until the fireplace finally reaches a temperature that suits him such that he will settle down on his sheepskin [...]

Radio Signals

February 13th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

February 13th, 2017 - My Mom's old transistor radio; it still works well, and it reminds me of how she would travel to Vancouver on the bus to visit us, headphones on, listening to CBC Radio all the way to the Coast. I think it belonged to her father, my Grandpa; she always referred to [...]

Anna’s Hummingbird

February 3rd, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017|

February 3, 2017 - Vancouver has a population of Anna's Hummingbirds that overwinter here. They are tiny, have high metabolic requirements, and feed is presumably scarce at this time of year, so I try very hard to make sure the feeder is always out, always contains food, and stays thawed out. It's a pretty neat [...]

Opinions vs Fact

January 15th, 2017|117 Photographs in 2017, Just Thinking|

January 15, 2016 - All too often when I find myself in a debate about something science based where the other party holds a strongly opposing view that is not based on good science, a stalemate is reached where my opponent flings out that most hated retort “I have a right to my opinion! You [...]
