I Am From Somewhere

WHERE AM I FROM? I am not from where my friend Jack is. He is from New Jersey. I am not from where my other friend, Jan is. He is from Europe. Where I am from? From a lot of places.  If we are talking about childhood it was a different place, another continent, if we are talking about teenage and University, it was a different place, also another continent, if we are talking about working, raising our children and living in my middle age, again it was a different place also, another continent. So, you see, I have lived […]

Winter is gone, but where is Spring?

WINTER I’ve not been doing welldressing up in winter, been looking a bit tired. It could be the heavy burden; our long winter is doing to me and maybe to everyone else. Winter is going, that is what we want to say, but it’s not happening. What I really want to do is dress up like Leonardo DiCaprio in the movie “The Revenant” and begin an arduous journey through the up north Canadian wilderness. Leonardo looks perfectly dressed and sharp for the terrain and the weather. It is my favorite film. This is where a human being learns to live […]

Climate Many of us do believe that our world is collapsing slowly due to climate changes. And there are some who believe that we are just going through a phase, like the past. Remember when Earth began to evolve, we had three atmospheric make overs. The last one was the one we have now, downgraded. The weather today is not anything like when Earth started. Over billions of years, we as humans have interfered with the weather cycles to make it harder and harsher. We no longer relate, no longer care, and no longer love our atmosphere gifted to us. […]

NOTES from TORONTO

January 2020 One of my worries about coming back to Toronto from Leamington was that the charm of the city of Toronto would not allow me to go back to the quiet farming town. Toronto is a bustling multicultural metropolis with a big and small town charm. A large agricultural community lives in the region of Prince Edward County. Picton is one those Ontario towns meant to meander. Kingston, a historic city and Canada’s original capital is one hour away.  Niagara Falls, a town also one hour away is grand, brazen and chintzy. Niagara-On-the-lake is charming elegant and tasteful and boasts […]

Diversity is a Way of Life – Our Way of Life

Another Way to be Human is to embrace diversity as seen on Earth, everywhere. Not only are humans diverse, but so are the animals who live in our forests and oceans. For a long time, the significance of biological diversity in the world’s forests and oceans was unclear. It is now known to play a vital role in maintaining the functionality and productivity of our ecosystems. It also makes habitats more resilient to environmental change. But the well-balanced species communities are becoming increasingly unstable. This holds true for human diversity on earth. It is vital to understand human diversity in […]
