In Honour of Alistair

Posted on

Alistair MacLeod was a literary giant but, even more importantly, he was a good man and a kind human being.

He knew what it was to be, to love, to live, to have faith in Life and to ask the big questions, some of which, may never be answered.

Alistair MacLeod

He will be missed and the world of Canadian fiction will never be the same.

Thank you Alistair for all that you gave and all that you were.

Be Who You Are

Your Verse

Posted on
“Oh me! Oh life! of the questions of these recurring,
Of the endless trains of the faithless, of cities fill’d with the foolish,
Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)
Of eyes that vainly crave the light, of the objects mean, of the struggle ever renew’d,
Of the poor results of all, of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me,
Of the empty and useless years of the rest, with the rest me intertwined,
The question, O me! so sad, recurring—What good amid these, O me, O life?
                                      
Answer.
That you are here—that life exists and identity,
That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”
- Walt Whitman -
Leaves of Grass

The Pleasure of the Contrary

OH WOW.

Posted on

There is nothing like a cold, rainy day to open up some time for pause and reflection.

It is on days like these where we can be reminded that an “oh wow” can be found in each moment of Life, and, where we can also be reminded of a person like Steve Jobs who got the wow factor.
