Plan a trip, but don’t promise the moon

Travel is an important aspect of our lives together as a family. But where to go? The trick will be to find some new and enchanting place — somewhere that would let us store up a harvest of fresh experiences and rich recollections. Somewhere out of the ordinary and maybe a bit adventurous.

Autumn is an artist with a palette of perfection

Life in the urban forest here at the prairie’s edge is of an uneven texture. July and August can test the patience. Why, we sometimes ask, would anyone choose to live in an oven? Then comes the turn to October and November, and with that the question is answered.

Provident squirrels? Fallen fruit suggests otherwise

When crab apples fall, the hazards on the walk are our responsibility. The feckless squirrels can’t be bothered. They’d rather spend time showing off their talent for climbing and leaping, depending for their winter nourishment on our filling the bird feeders, from which they shamelessly poach.
