Becoming Snow

As we prepare for the fall to cease and the wondrous snow to appear, I am reminded of a lovely new friend who paid me a visit in Fernie years ago. She was experiencing snow for the first time in her life and it was remarkable to witness! As our community welcomes people from all over the world for another winter season, I am reminded of her, her curiosity, and exuberance surrounding snow and its inescapable grasp throughout our magical winters.

Fighting the Freeze: How Do Water Animals Survive the Winter?

Most animals have three choices to survive winter: migrate, hibernate, or cope with freezing temperatures. Many birds (and some humans) choose to migrate south to warmer places. Bears fatten up and sleep through winter in their dens. But aquatic animals have an extra challenge: freezing water. Few animals can withstand being frozen because the forming ice destroys cell membranes, so aquatic animals have “cool” adaptations.

Exploring Malta

In October we travelled to Malta, a small island country located south of Sicily in the Mediterranean Sea. The culture dates back over 7000 years and has three UNESCO sites with the Gozo Temples classified as the oldest structures in the world making them older than the Pyramids and Stonehenge. The Maltese language is one of the oldest living languages in the world… the country is literally an open-air museum.

November 2023 Editor’s Fix

Sometimes I feel alone in my sadness as fall comes to an end. There are so many excited people around, and it deters me from expressing how I truly feel. So here it is, winter is awfully cold, wet and long! I said it.

A couple of years back I did a column on using your iPhone in Mexico. It’s pretty easy to do down there. But what about the rest of the world?

November 2023 Astrology

November is another month full of intense emotions, passions, motivations rolling in after the two eclipses that occurred in October that likely changed people’s lives and direction. Prepare for another powerful month with the Sun and Mars travelling in Scorpio for the majority of the month. Mars and Pluto are the ruling energies of Scorpio. Pluto went direct as the Sun moved into Scorpio October 22, and with Mars travelling so close to the Sun the themes are of scorpio: death, transformation, resurrection, passions, sexuality, knowledge.

It’s About the People

When this goes to print, I will have been Mayor of Fernie for a year. That feels amazing to me, both that the time has gone so fast and that it’s only been a year.

Creativity has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Not always in the realm of visual arts but in some way or another. As a child I used to write fantasy novels and create other worlds that I could travel to with my imagination. Today, my work still reflects that love of fancifulness and enchantment, but now in a much different capacity.
