This is today as I look out my windows. It has snowed constantly since ten A.M. yesterday morning. You get used to Spring snow storms when you grow up on the Prairies. Indeed I think they can some of the most fierce. While largely removed from farming these days I have had the experience of being there. I know that calving has just occurred. Calves can be most susceptible to weather resulting in losses.
That said, while I can expect these storms it don't mean that I like them. I have a number of things that need to be done today outside of the house: a haircut; need to buy a gift for my niece; grocery shopping, etc. all this snow and wind is going to make it difficult.
Who am I? I was born in Saskatchewan to parents who farmed, to a family that toiled. I cherish my green roots, yet identify with Albertan liberalism. I highly regard the Prairie lifestyle and landscapes. I am a man who is decidedly-Christian. I try to live out the Gospel everyday while living and working in the Calgary inner-city. I am enjoying what I do, and the people in my life. I like to write, but am greatly challenged by fiction (Oh, W.O where art thou?). I find happiness in the mountains and behind my camera. On these pages are glimpses of my life. I hope you enjoy my journal.
