parks

One of my many concerns for future generations is the future of public parks. Firstly, I firmly believe that shared spaces where all can partake in nature is a right that must continue to be elevated and supported by all levels of government and the public. Secondly, I believe that governments have an obligation to…

Getting Old Fast Now

I am not a big fan of growing old. I mean, I like the part about acquiring memories and knowledge and developing wisdom but the part about my moving parts having issues from aging, that part I do not like.

possible futures

One of my favourite thing about following bloggers is when they pass along one of their own learning moments and share a new concept with us. Reading Patrick Rhone’s web site The Random Post I discovered another Gem that he found. He point’s us to Derek Sivers’ concept of “possible futures” where you create a…
