It has been a while since I last wrote… almost two months! A very busy time for me as I have been working on a large project at work, and also writing and exploring some things in private. Normally I like to think out loud on my blog, but I am at the beginning of my thinking and have nothing worthy to say, so I have kept quiet (for once!).
Furthermore, at the beginning of April we took a trip to Vancouver — the whole family by Greyhound bus, which was an adventure. Spending nearly a week living in Kitsilano, and comparing it to when I lived in downtown Vancouver nearly 20 years ago, I collected many observations about the absurdity of life in the lower mainland. But, so as not to be berated as a loud-mouthed know-nothing outside, I decided against writing anything.
In the past few weeks we have been preparing for this year’s Asian Heritage Month celebrations, of which I have written a bit in my first post below. My wife is heavily involved, and I am volunteering at a number of the events. May should bring more downtime for reflection and writing. I look forward to it!
Hope all is well with you,
Timeline of Japanese in the Okanagan
For Asian History month I put together a short interactive timeline of Japanese-Canadians in the Okanagan.
Drifting towards the stream
It was Easter, so I decided to write a meditation on my long and winding road towards Buddhism.
