It's about random photos, lovely places and appreciating what is here.

I interviewed Whitney Pier resident Brian Dean, and his partner Erin, back in February. Since then, Brian has written a guest piece here about cleaning up your neighbourhood, which was honest, sharp-witted, and funny. He’s a really thrifty guy and … Continue reading
I’m so happy to welcome Hannah MacDonald to the blog as a guest writer. This is the first in a series she’ll be writing about her move “Out West”. “One way to Edmonton?” the clerk at the VIA Rail ticket … Continue reading
