HEADLINES

  • Bloglovin’ on V-Day… - Hmmm…Valentine’s Day again. This morning, before heading to work, I went through my regular routine of checking out my social media sites. Coffee and quiche in bed with my ever-present MacBook Pro – yes, I am a true 21st century cliche…technology follows me everywhere. Other than a loving shout-out to all, though, I don’t have […]
  • Paging Dr. Muise… - It’s funny how siblings evolve…and how they take different paths. I was just reminded to send out ‘good energy’ to the universe because my little brother is defending his Ph.D. thesis today. We may soon have a ‘doctor’ in the family! It’s been a long road for him with a decade of post-secondary work, but […]
  • Words from a CFA… - I wonder when a ‘southerner’ becomes a ‘northerner’. If you’re born and raised somewhere outside of Nunavut, can you ever say you’re from the north? I grew up in a small community in Nova Scotia and, though some families were very large and had multiple branches, mine wasn’t. Other than my parents and siblings, no […]
  • Tauja Qaujimajatuqangit - Last week, I posed a question to everyone who has access to my facebook page (you can ‘like’ it here anytime). Basically, I was wondering if anyone had particular post topic requests. I know that a blog is generally a personal narrative, but it can make you feel rather narcissistic if you get caught up […]
  • Take these broken wings and learn to fly… - It’s been just over a week since Scarlett passed away. I still feel broken, but today I was able to smile at my co-workers for the first time. Well, as long as we’re talking about something other than Scarlett. You know, I never understood the expression ‘to pass away’. I remember trying to explain it […]
  • On Being Blogspotted… - I must confess something…one of the motivations for getting back into blogging came from an outside source. It was after the site had been avoided for months. Samia Madwar, writer from Up Here magazine, somehow used her investigative skills and found my phone number here in Rankin Inlet. I came home to a blinking light […]
  • A Blanket of Memories - When I was choosing my university degree years ago and realized that, with a bit of planning and hard work, I could complete two degrees at the same time I thought, “Why not?” Make sure your electives meet the requirements of the 2nd degree – doable. I searched through that university calendar and settled on […]
  • Wordless Wednesday?? - Well, it’s Wednesday. There are so many blogs that seem to lean heavily on photos that the alliteration is just too difficult to resist. Today I have a lot of words. But not a lot of words to write. My beautiful dog, Scarlett, passed away this week suddenly. I’m not ready to write much more […]
  • How did Stella get her groove back? - I’ve been thinking about this blog a lot recently. It used to be a life-line, then it turned to a hobby. Now it just seems to represent a gap. ‘A gap in what?’ you ask. Well, life I suppose. At least in the public life I choose to share. Since my last update on July […]
  • A belated blog beginning… - I’ve started a blog post so often in the past week…and haven’t gotten through more than 10 sentences in each. How do you write about an adventure when you’re still in the midst of experiencing it? I’m trying to remember everything, but the occasional picture here and there doesn’t quite cover the scope of the […]
