Winding down the weekend

Well, it's looking more and more likely that I'll be heading to the Northwest Territories for my next adventure! Hard to believe!! This morning I had an amazing chat with Anouk - a gal from Belgium who is already up there working. She told me all about the community and what I'd be doing (working on a recreation program). Nothing is set in stone yet however (of course). But I cannot wait till things are confirmed.

This weekend I also helped my sister pick out her wedding outfit! What she's wearing is a huge secret, so I can't even post what kind of outfit it is. And in spite of the fact that I really cannot stand the whole "wedding fuss/traditions/etiquette" insanity, it was a real thrill to be there for her big choice.

Maurice: "The truth about stories is that that's all we are."

I was never very good at telling stories, but I always wanted to be. My latest read is "The Truth about Stories" by Thomas King. A wonderful little book that illustrates how stories are the key to, and only hope for, human understanding.
