This October begins with the Libra theme of relationship which deals with the ‘other’ and its balance and harmony. There is an immediate intensity this month that will continue and grow as we move into the most passionate and intense sign of the zodiac, Scorpio.

As I meditate on what it means to begin again, I am doing just that: beginning again. I will learn to trust my body and the fortitude of my mind to rise and be stronger. I am broken but will heal.

Just because it is easy to quantify does not make growth an accurate metric for the well-being of a business. So many of us have moved to Fernie for lifestyle reasons, shouldn’t that be part of the equation?

As introduced in the June edition, the Built Heritage Grants, funded by Columbia Basin Trust and administered by Heritage BC, are helping to restore some of Fernie’s most significant and historic buildings. One of these is Knox United Church.

My first attempt at chainsaw carving did not turn out like I thought it would. It was absolutely terrible. It was a human face and it was really bad. I did however know where my mistakes were. 

September will be a very practical month and getting organised after summer is the focus.

The sunny weather might linger well into September but summer fun changes with the start of the school calendar. It is a perfect time to hit the pause button and find time to complete an art project. 

The Fernie & District Arts Council are delighted to share with you the selected artist for the Fernie Mural Project; Michael Hepher with his piece, "All Kinds of Beauty".

Netflix, which has recently produced an excellent documentary about Bundy, called The Ted Bundy Tapes, has now decided to release a dramatization of the events around his murders.

Recently a friend asked me about managing photos on her iPhone. She is a prolific photographer, taking photos for personal and professional social media use. Her challenge is managing the volume of photos, but also being able to go back and find them again.
