The Borrowed Snow Day

I didn’t actually believe I was going skiing until about 20 minutes before the unfamiliar fluorescent gear was strapped to my feet. In what world does someone without snow pants or winter tires think: “Tomorrow I will be waist deep in powder hoping my friends like me enough to wait at the bottom of the... Continue Reading →

Poems for Human People

Sometimes I feel surrounded with brokenness and sometimes the only thing to do is write. What you'll find below are observations, not solutions, reflections, not remedies. If you need a laugh, by all means, read this instead. If you need a cry or a ponder continue: Poem of the Heartbroken Has your sky fallen in?... Continue Reading →


The Tricks of the Trail | Mount Work

It started as an average Bonnie-and-Meghan hike: Bonnie brought hand written directions. I insisted we follow Google Maps. Bonnie had hiked it before. I had not. Bonnie wore layers and packed snacks. I forgot my mittens, but managed to find a half-eaten cliff bar at the bottom of my purse. The only change from the... Continue Reading →

2000 Meters Above the Sea | Mount Albert Edward

Since moving to Vancouver Island three years ago I’ve heard legends of Mount Albert Edward’s epic alpine views. To be honest, I didn’t take them too seriously. What does an island dweller know about scaling glaciers and taking peak selfies? Sure, I’ll trust their opinions on organic beer and bike lanes. But mountains? Please, I’m... Continue Reading →


What’s Next?

"What's next?" Since returning from Europe, we've been asked this question more times than I can count. If you're a twenty something, then maybe you too can relate. Of course, it's possible that the awkwardness of living an unpredictable life plagues other generations too. I suspect it does. And maybe you too know how difficult it... Continue Reading →


Bulkley Valley

I come from a place where weddings are in country halls, grocery stores are attached to ever changing shopping malls, and the mountain views footnote our conversations because if you mention them you're obviously not from here. Where each house, each party, each vacation spot is somewhere down a dirt road or just past a... Continue Reading →
