The True Power of the Canadian Spirit.

This is a pretty terrifying and uncertain time. I get that. I have a older and sick family, know lots of older & sick people and have lots of friends who are in the same boat. We see on the increasing numbers every day, including the cases, recoveries and sadly, deaths. For someone with anxiety […]

The Power of WE (and Overdue Library Books).

Confession: never have I ever had an overdue library book. In all my 28 years (and 24 of them with the nickname Bookworm), it’s just something that’s never happened.
