I remember when The Tragically Hip’s masterpiece was released. Through the music video for “Courage” I was hooked. This was a need to own album. I respected The Hip somewhat to this point but could never really get into the previous records. As “Courage” continued in heavy rotation on Much Music, I became more interested […]

Writing – A Daily Need To Observe

This great pic is of a peaceful cottage where I spent part of a long early fall weekend. The place overlooked waters heavily frequented by seals and scallop dragging boats.
