What’s on your list this year? More visits to the gym? Learning a new language? By reviewing your needs and goals, you can identify some resolutions that are particularly relevant to your situation.
I love my creative life—I wake up in the morning, make coffee, help the kids out the door to school, and at that moment the routine in my life ends. For the rest of the day, I could be setting some type for a new poster, carving a block for a print commission, working on paintings for a solo show, or putting together an application for a future public art call.
Yesterday tells the story of Jack Malik, a struggling musician who, on a dark and stormy night, gets hit by a bus and wakes up in a world in which The Beatles do not exist.
Setting goals is one thing, but making a plan to follow through is next level. This is what makes a streak so exceptional. A streak can be partnered with a New Year’s resolution or a word of the year, and make either one more powerful.
If there’s one thing everyone living in Fernie can agree on it’s that we’re all so lucky to call this place home! Especially if you’re an adopted dog like Gus and London, who hit the jackpot in finding humans who choose to live here.

If you know an outstanding volunteer in one of the rural areas in the region, the RDEK encourages you to nominate them for the 2020 Electoral Area Volunteer of the Year award.
Times have certainly changed in Fernie. Ten years ago, if you wanted to upgrade your couch, it involved a trip to the City. The choice in town was minimal, and the chances of you finding 'The One' was pretty much non-existent. These days, we're lucky.
There is a special energy that happens at the change of the year, every year, providing a blank slate and a fresh optimistic start. There is no doubt in my mind that this is why the Gregorian Calendar marks this time of year as the ‘new year.’
January can be a tough month. The days are short, it is cold outside, and there are no fun holidays to keep us celebrating. Participating in activities like the Fernie Streak can be really helpful as they get us outside and moving.
Whether you’re looking for a three-hour adventure or cramming a 30-minute walk into your hectic day, streaking is for everyone. The inaugural year was a huge success, full of inspiring stories, amazing photos, epic adventures, rekindled friendships, new sports, and 31 days full to the brim of #FernieStoke.
