My autumn dance with Dylan Thomas

Autumn is here. The leaves turn golden red and yellow, beckoning us to notice their beauty once more before they let go and release, surrendering to the ground.

How collective energy catalyzes more energy

I was helping my parents set up at Market Square today — as I usually do early Saturday mornings — and I was struck by the feeling of community.

I am standing in a gymnasium in a high security youth correctional centre in Saskatchewan.

I am sitting in a circle, in the chapel of All Saints Catholic School, where the Free2BGirlz Empowerment Camp is being held. Seventeen girls are sitting wide eyed, and a bit reserved, wondering what this camp is all about, and what exactly they have said “yes” to.

It is Friday. I am sitting in the Regina Airport waiting for my flight to Winnipeg, where I will be teaching a weekend course).

To be or not to be… that is the question. “What Happens When We Leap.”

My parents will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary in May. That freakin’ blows my mind.

It's Ukrainian Easter weekend (on the Julian calendar) and Christine and I am headed with my parents to northern Saskatchewan for our Ukrainian Easter celebrations.
