The Focus for My Blog

“Life is a Journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved”, Winnie the Pooh

When I think of community, I think of a culture of people who live in the same town who communicate with each other based on culture, interests, inspirations and social connections.

My blog is focused on the communities in which I live in. The Okanagan Valley View is the literal focus that represents my views linguistically to connect with a wider community here in the Okanagan and the community on the Web.

I belong to a community of faith which has enriched my life from the ground up. I have experienced many facets of people whom I’ve come to know through serving in my local Church family. I know that we hold so much as people that we can’t all place a life in a snapshot and discuss it in depth over everything, so my focus is brief encounters that make a difference.

Where I am.

There you are.

In my College life I am challenged by the diverse experiences that open my eyes to another culture, first the culture of the young, and also the culture of community within the walls of education. These experiences move me to come outside of my comfort zone into the educational system of students and instructors that may test my views, expand my knowledge at the Okanagan College.

I hold the truth in my heart

And the learned systems of knowledge I embrace

There you are.

My views can be controversial at times, this is not to stretch the reader, but really to stretch me in ways that I share, care and express. This is not a journal. It’s the views I have of what is going on while I drive, walk, witness, experience, taste, touch, and live. There are a vast amount of family in community, friends, and acquaintances, advertisements, that I think to myself, wow, this is amazing, and interesting to share? How else can we get to know each other unless we get a little vulnerable.

To see what’s inside

And know I’ve shared an experience

Where you are

The community profile section I bring to my blog are those people in my faith community, my college community, those in our town and surrounding area that I sense is something to share and have it available to be read.

The profiles I bring to you can be conversational pieces of literary language that lets others step inside of a room where we view others who have something to say and to come away thinking hmmm interesting or I didn’t know that.

To see you here

Hear what you say

And move on your way changed for the better part of the day.

The interest blogs of mine that can be related too are the local news, the writing community and the tourism industry of the Valley; however, my blog is too new for this to be anything but a window of parts of the store that hasn’t yet been fully developed.

This is where community meets my feet

Where you are

where we meet.
