    I remember you when you came to my jR high last year in St.Albert/Edmonton. I loved the speech you gave!

  3. He must be getting old – he completely forgot to mention that he leads and inspires a group of people at the Millarville Church Writer’s Group that he started 6 or so years ago. Members have published 5 books and another is in the wings. The really good news is that he NEVER uses the word ‘grammar’.

    Hi Bill

    I read your First Person story of the tiny prairie crocus this morning and was enchanted.
    I adore well written stories that take me outdoors and away from the concrete and noisy, polluted air of Toronto.

    Thank you for a lovely Spring story. I was missing my Mum and am now reminded how even through the depths of Alzheimer’s she would smile, with eyes sparkling, as soon as we got into the Bermuda Botanical Gardens where roses, lilies, stray cats, wild roosters and playing children amused her for a little while.

    l look forward to reading your writing.

      Hello Dale,

      Thank you for your note. I don’t think I responded as I’m not on my own website often. My apologies. You comments mean a lot, especially in these times.
