October 2022 The small spruce and burning bush that we planted in front of my study window have become substantial and gnarled, radiating out from their original plant, allowing for dead in the middle and providing empty hollows for bird nests. Through an open patch in the branches, I can see our small crab apple … Continue reading WONDER
To the Public Emergency Commission October 20, 2022 The last year of my life shook my world view and changed my political affiliations. I am still waiting to see normalcy return but I suspect we now live in a new world where my individual rights are no longer respected or protected. I am frightened for … Continue reading To the Public Emergency Commission
Metamorphosis continues! MAY 24, 2015 / MEGDEDWARDS / EDIT An old post from 2015 that I can still stand by. It is true that I still have to edit that novel that I almost finished, but I was, to be honest, happily diverted when I found out how much I enjoyed playwriting! I decided to try playwriting because I … Continue reading Still changing, still growing, still writing..

It is the spring of 2020 and the plague is upon us. I have every convenience and comfort. I ramble through the days like a protected queen in her castle. I wander my spacious colourful home and nap, write, clean and watch TV. We eat well and we walk through the forest or stand by … Continue reading Baie Verte Idyll

I found some old blogs sitting forgotten in drafts. I should leave them there, you say. But I say nay, I will toss them out in the flotsam. The short ones made me laugh. Abrupt beginnings, promising so much, and delivering nothing! Forgotten and discarded. Much has happened since I wrote these, but I thought … Continue reading Return of the Lost Blogger
Hello to my legion of fans, (Hello Lester!) I have not published in many months. I have lost the urge to toss my personal life out into the public domain and I am not perfectly sure why I was so drawn to it in the first place. It's brave and sort of crazy and maybe … Continue reading Now that I have stopped Bloggin’
