The Beauty in Halloween

October 31, 2008

“In the face of all the horror, the small-minded stupidity, the endless bloody wars, and inevitable death, people have gone on and on constructing things of beauty.” – Kieran Egan. Teaching as Story Telling. The Althouse Press: [Keep Reading]

We Both Lost

October 30, 2008

Yesterday, I went to go get gas at Canadian Tire. One of the bonuses of going there is that if you pay with cash, you get Canadian Tire money to use in the store. Last time I went there, I forgot that and paid with my Visa. Well this time, I [Keep Reading]

We Are Forgetting

October 29, 2008

I think we are in the process of forgetting a lot of the things we used to know. The irony is that everything is recorded and stored in someway nowadays. With this constant storage and compiling we don’t think we are forgetting anything. It [Keep Reading]

Put Your Kid on That Bus

October 21, 2008

Ari at Our Best Version inspired this post. He mentioned that he plans to home school his children. I started to type of this reply and then thought that it might be a bit long for a reply. Check his post here and my response both here and there [Keep Reading]

Kids Aren’t China Dolls

October 20, 2008

I don’t know why some parents treat their children like they are precious and breakable items that need to be constantly looking their best. It’s okay for children to get muddy. It’s alright if they come home with a grass stain. [Keep Reading]

I Ran Up The Escarpment

October 17, 2008

“Hey I can see my mom’s house from here.” That little red dot is where I started my run, approximately. I have gone for some great runs in Grimsby. Last time I ran at Beamer’s Memorial Conservation Area on the mountain. The [Keep Reading]
