We all need to laugh right? I have been searching for this video for a while and finally found it. First saw it on FastCompany last year, and thought it might be something fun to share on a Friday. Old/New is the story of a man who begins the film with a love of new […]

The Summer in Nova Scotia is wonderful. On a nice day the sun is shining the trees are so lush it almost looks tropical. Sure we do get a bit more rain then I would like but sometimes a sun shower can create a lovely moment where you rush to grab shade under the nearest […]

So I asked myself a question the other day, “Are memories an adequate replacement for time travel?”. I know, a weird question but one that has been stuck in my head ever since I thought about it. Long story short I have been having a bit of a rough few weeks, life changing stuff that I didn’t realize could affect we the way it has. You live and you learn, they say, but at my age I had hoped I would stop learning these life lessons. Well I have not. True story!

As mentioned in my last blog post I am getting a bit of the winter blues. There were a few last storms, but the spring melt has begun in Halifax and I am dreaming of bikes and bike rides under the sun and stars in the warm weather that is coming. Last year I picked […]

I seem to pause now and then when it comes to posting in my blog but this week I had the urge to talk about Halifax. There is a great deal of new development happening across the city, much of it in the urban centre. This is a fantastic change since most of the development […]

It has been a while since I have posted anything on my blog. Though I do have a reserve of graffiti pics lined up for posting. Came across this animated short by the National Film Board of Canada, from the 1960’s, with a Martians view of the earth. Earthlings are cars, interesting perspective during a […]

Oh the New Year! As January hits mid-month and February is quickly approaching, I find myself dreaming of the Spring, Fall, Summer months. Really any season except for the cold, snowy, wind-swept Winter season. My wanderings have changed from long bike rides, along wooded trails, city streets and paths with beautiful harbour views. To quick […]

Summer has began to slip by very quickly without me even noticing it was here. For me September tends to be a month of reflection, mainly because it is my birthday month, and this year it would appear that I have a great deal to think about. That is not necessarily a bad thing but […]
