Entering the storm.

This morning I woke up not knowing what hit me.  Where I went to bed last night feeling relatively upbeat after struggling for the last few days prior, this morning I woke up to a shroud of darkness that has settled over me.  I am drained. My energy level is next to non-existent, as is … Continue reading Entering the storm.

Despite the lies my illness tell me, I know I’ve left my mark.

Today has been long, and busy. I spent the day at the church today, while Lynn was working in the office there. We had a team from Parkland Audio/Video in Red Deer come out today to install a new projector for our Sanctuary, and help me troubleshoot some gremlins I was having in the soundboard.  … Continue reading Despite the lies my illness tell me, I know I’ve left my mark.

The thoughts that threaten to strangle me.  The thoughts that weigh me down. Failures and … Continue reading Demons

Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes of Grindelwald. (No spoilers)

I went in to Fantastic Beasts: the Crimes of Grindewald with mixed expectations. It's not that I was expecting it to be a bad show, but after how well done the first one was I wasn't sure how a sequel would do.  In a word: WOW.  From the opening sequence to the end credits, the … Continue reading Movie Review: Fantastic Beasts, The Crimes of Grindelwald.

What is my legacy?

Photo by Mike on Pexels.com "Time and tide wait for no man."-Unknown. I'm feeling my age. I'm pushing 40. Lynn is already there. We are both definitely into middle-age, and I think we have both been wondering what we have to show for our life. I know I have. I haven't been able to give … Continue reading What is my legacy?
