Head to Stratford This Month to See the Sound of Music - You'll Thank Me

When we were visiting Stratford, Ontario earlier this month, we had a slew of plays and musicals to choose from. For, as you know, Stratford is a theatre town, and why visit without seeing the shows? As we discovered, Stratford is also an art town, a foodie town, and a deeply cultural town. But I digress. The shows.

Where to Stay - and Eat - in Miramichi, New Brunswick

Where to Stay - and Eat - in Miramichi, New Brunswick

Nestled alongside the Miramichi River in (you guessed it) Miramichi, New Brunswick is a treasured hotel, and a genius restaurant. I had no idea, when we pulled up to the long (very long!) yellow building fronting the river, that such goodness would await us inside.

The Magic of Possibility: Fling!

I recently read a novel that completely pulled me into the universe –and what a universe it is! Fling!, the new novel from writer and educator Lily Iona Mackenzie, is set in many countries. It’s at once a glimpse into new, interesting characters - and new, interesting worlds. It’s a saga that spans time, all at once. It’s color, and cold; light, and dark; memory, and forgetfulness; mothers, daughters, granddaughters; culture, and chaos. I love it.
