2022-04-20T09:14:21-04:00

Gary's Gems - The Let Us Not be like November Issue  Is there anything redeemable about November? I always try to be positive but November challenges me.

2022-04-20T09:18:35-04:00

Gary’s May Gems - Finding the Key to Our Secret Garden I'm already missing my “secret garden”. Spring came early this year. We wasted no time in opening our windows to welcome her.

Gary's October Gems – The Giving Thanks Issue October makes her annual entrance like a diva posing in front of a wind machine; her billowing cape of colours cover everything in her path. As the days pass, she becomes smaller, weaker, and tattered. By the time she makes her exit, she is [...]

Gary's August Stories - The "All the World is a Stage" Issue Who could have foreseen back in March and April that come summer, we’d still see no sign of a return to pre COVID19 normal,  an end to disruption. Our routines have changed to reflect new normals but as much as we can [...]

2022-04-20T09:24:43-04:00

Gary’s July Gems - The Teacher Don’t Preach Issue It’s as clear as if it happened yesterday. The past forty years hadn’t fogged up the rearview mirror. I was sitting in class waiting for my College Physics course results. The room was quiet, my head - not so much. Self-doubt and anxiety were [...]
