This weekend at Spur–a festival “of politics, arts, and ideas”–a vital question will be discussed. What do you think of when you see the question, “Strictly Canadian = Doomed to Fail?”? Consider the explanation on the event’s web page. As for me, I won’t go into too much detail. (My thoughts are pasted below.) But […]
Source Those aren’t my teeth, by the way. 😉 Remember when I wrote about my wisdom teeth? I said I wanted them out during exam time or over the holidays. Well, that didn’t happen. I’m getting them out later this week. I have scared myself out of my wits reading everything from general stories of […]

I’m always thankful for intriguing comments. Dalia and Lisa never fail to get me thinking. 🙂 eeeenteresting… I have left FT feeling sad, definitely — but sad in the sense that encountering God in corporate worship tore a necessary hole in my protective layer. Pain laced with a deeper joy. Since I left I have […]
