The Epistle of Q — Chapter 190(c)

A four part Trilogy… Sometimes things change, sometimes it’s because a person cares (this is the complete copy of a message that MP Michele Rempel Garner posted on her substack today which she encouraged me to share – I am doing so because, in spite of much that I have been reading and responding to […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 190(b)

Sometimes things change, sometimes they seem to be ignored… Here is another verbatim document that I came across – The Open Letter from Women of the Middle East letter was initiated by Iranian and Israeli women’s rights activists. I have not found this mentioned by any Canadian politician, let alone political leader NOR have I […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 190(a)

Sometimes things change, sometimes they should stick to their original intention! Attention please: I am providing you, verbatim, an executive brief provided by the Financial Post that I read today [I must confess at the outset, that this rather deftly summarizes what I was taught about what a university was all about even before my […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 190

oh oh… Sometimes things change, sometimes not so much (second reflection) You probably won’t be surprised to know that I have always admired Rex Murphy, even before he had a clip of me on CBC (which in itself, is kind of amazing given my attitudes towards CBC-TV). He had a column recently that sums up […]

The Epistle of Q — Chapter 188

And yet… Sometimes things change, sometimes not so much… If there is anything useful out of the evil Hamas invasion of Israel (thus breaking a cease-fire agreement) it is that I have a better understanding of how the Nazis came to take over the mindset of many Germans in the lead up to the Second […]

ROOTS VI — Coming Home

After the time in Wick and the Orkneys it became more exploratory sightseeing. The train ride to Kyle of Lochalsh via Dingwall was a plethora of different geologic and geographic moments. Other than most shops being closed as it was Monday, everything was spectacular. From Kyle we journeyed through parts of the Isle of Skye […]

ROOTS VI Part 4 Reflections

I will continue the travelog later, but Sunday turned out to be more reflective than I had anticipated. It was the final full day in Wick and after brekkie the first stop was church. St. Fergus is an old building, significantly upgraded in the 1990’s. It is one of only two remaining Presbyterian churches in […]

ROOTS VI — Part 3

0n Wednesday it seemed like a “long day’s journey into night”. Boarded the train in the darkness of pre-dawn and due to delays due to rain-induced speed limits, did not arrive in Wick until dusk. But fear not this ride north turned out to be educational and enjoyable. Some myths were dispelled. I had been […]
