I just came across this old photo of my brother Ronald while I am visiting his twin, Donald, here in Vancouver. Now I don’t know if this photo was staged or planned or by chance but it’s a compelling photo of Ronald & my Dad by the statue of Jesus. I’m not even sure where…

It’s iconic – no doubt about it. From the first glimpse of the totems outside the front door entrance to the Tomahawk restaurant, you just know that eating there is going to be an experience. The first thing you see when you walk in is a souvenir counter and when I asked the gentleman behind…

I fell in love today With beautiful English Bay Where the gaggles of geese & gulls gather To honk, to squawk & to blabber                 I watched happy people jog by And rollerbladers zoom on the fly There were cyclists and all kinds of dog-walkers Along with sightseers…

I dubbed my trip as the “The “Oh-My-Good-God-Stop-The-Car-Grab-The-Camera” Journey to Whistler Mountain” There is no other way to describe our trip to Whistler Mountain yesterday.

I am my own Flash Mob! Well, that’s how it felt anyway. I was asked to sing in the Jasper, Alberta VIA Rail station so as soon as we stopped, I hopped out of the train with my keyboard, stand & backpack. With a little help from my friend and her family, we quickly set…
