In the past I never considered that I lead an overly interesting life, however I have since learned that “interesting” is very subjective and has a variety of concepts.
I have not been much of a dare-devil or thrill-seeker but I have done things and been places that many others have not. It seems that there are those who enjoy my recollecting of these occasions, and that is one of the reasons for this blog. Another reason is to share some of my thoughts because generally, sharing is good.
I had a career in Canada’s military, have worked for various charities and non profits, had several businesses and then worked on a casual basis at a local Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment up until my final retirement. I have lived in Canada literally coast to coast to coast and yet seem to have merely touched the surface of what our country has to offer. I have two wonderful children, and through marriage, have gained two more along with seven grandchildren. I love people and yet spend an inordinate amount of time by myself. I am not shy about saying that I like/respect/admire someone, may offer criticisms of those I don’t, but I refuse to badmouth or speak in a derogatory form about anyone.
I generally avoid pontificating about politics or religion, however I will often speak on social issues and at times when I believe that injustices have occurred.
Some of what I say may be thoughtful, some witty, some perhaps silly. Whatever it is, it is all from me. I welcome any who wish to follow me, and I welcome any comments, as long as they are not rude or vulgar, in which case they will be deleted.
