No Fixed Address

Sometimes it all feels a bit heavy? Having no fixed address doesn’t fit with the society we’ve built. It seems no-one quite knows what to do with me?  Everywhere I go, it seems, there’s a form to fill in and someone is asking you where I live. It’s tempting to give up… Is this similar … Read more

Pre-Stampede…

This is the week – or two – that everyone goes crazy here in Calgary! I’ve never seen so many cowboy boots and hats as I did the other night – mostly on the hundreds of leggy young girls in micro-shorts (at Ranchmans – which was completely over-the-top crazy)! And I had no idea that … Read more

Apres-Cruise

Oh no… We had already left ‘at sea’ behind us and were arriving back in the port of San Juan by the time I got out on to the deck (again) to watch the sunrise over the horizon, out at sea.  I’d set my alarm for 5.45am and made it in time – this time … Read more
