Fall has been wonderful here.

I am going to start blogging again. I’ve been a bit absorbed in transcripts and conference presentation-writing. But, the fantastic autumn we’re having deserves some mention . . . .

Vancouver: Kissing Couple

Favourite picture

Were they taking part in the riots? Were they innocent bystanders? I don’t care about the speculation. The kissing couple is the most fabulous picture of the last 5 years:

At least something good came of the riots–otherwise a national embarrassment.

Second favourite picture

My second favourite picture of the last 5 years is the curious squirrel. (I thought it was a gopher).

A Secret By Lauryn

mkoole, · Categories: Uncategorized · Tags:

A secret is heard from the 11th floor.

It hurries down the stairs to spread the word.

The Snooper grabs a pen and paper to write down the secret, then suddenly, so delicately crumples and throws the paper away.

Paper ball“What am I thinking” the Snooper says quietly.

This is a secret, it should not be told.

The secret rushes back up the stairs and now remains unknown.


This was written by my friend’s daughter. Wonderful.
