Summer is here!

The weather in this incredible part of the world has been stunning, clear and sunny with cool nights....a clarity of light we rarely see quite this etched, and at times like these, BC is hard to beat anywhere!

It's been a busy time for book events and for family visits. And now, I've been asked to consider presenting a session next year, looking at the themes in my book (Havens in a Hectic World: Finding Sacred Places) from the "health and wellness" perspective. This sounds intriguing, especially since CBC radio host Jo-Ann Roberts and I have already produced our Radio One special "Healing the Heart" looking at the places we go to and the music we listen to when we need to heal.

Speaking of Jo-Ann, she and I camped recently at one of MY sacred places, Sombrio Beach, and we were joined on the beach by Mama Bear and her twins,...made life just that much more tangy and exciting!


  1. Another blog post! hooray! The "health and wellness" series sounds interesting...looking forward to hearing more.

  3. Hi, Okay, take two:..the health and wellness session was suggested by a school trustee because she feels teachers are burning out at an alarming rate and would like me to present a workshop to teachers that looks at the idea of healing, renewal, taking care of yourself from the sacred places POV. An OT (occupational therapist) yesterday also talked to me about how my book applies to their clients too! Sounds like a whole new "chapter" in the life of Havens!
