That’s why I created this site. Stories of life, stories of the actions, campaigns and movements of my life. Stories that have been written, rewritten and rewritten again, stories that have been rattling around in my head since childhood. So Please, bookmark us, comeback with a tea, sit back and enjoy. Send a note, a word of encouragement or a kick in the butt, but say Hi
The Heart of the Turtle
The offspring of Otter and Meadow are the focus. Throughout the generations, the conflicts, the victories, the elation and waves of saddness, we learn of history from the victors. Those who, so many generations later, still live with the teachings, the stories, the culture and the scars of genocide.
Turtle will provide a look at the history of Turtle Island, (North America) through the eyes of the Original People.
The Spot, Bitumen Alta.
Delmar and Marsha Michaels, former hippies from Vancouver, read of the Great Spot Fire and arranged to buy the property and name from the Roots. They then created their vision of The Spot. Townspeople were aghast at the fact that this local Institution fell into the hands of “These People”.
Y2K To Today
Life is a series of chapters, stages if you will. Each chapter of my life is worthy a story or two. However this last 17 years has proven to skirt the unbelievable, although easily verified.
I will preface this with the truth that I graduated the 8th grade at Hillside Sr Public School and quit a few weeks into 9th grade. This is important to these last 17 years because in that time I was elected President of an International Non-Governmental Organization, substitute taught Eight Grade and was an Instructor at Trent University. In the last 17 years I’ve Guest Lectured throughout the world, been recognized by the Canadian Courts as an Expert – Indigenous Environment and Health. Most importantly though, over these last 17 years I’ve begun to reconcile a past, mend a bridge or two and been gifted the most amazing Wife/Partner and children.
