“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 based on culture, interests, inspirations and social connections.
I focus my blog on the communities where I live. The Okanagan Valley View is the literal focus representing my views linguistically to connect with a broader community here in the Okanagan and the community on the Web.
I belong to a community of faith that has enriched my life from the ground up. I have experienced many facets of people I’ve come to know by serving in my local church family. I know that we hold so much as people that we can’t all place 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.
I am challenged in College life, by diverse experiences that open my eyes to another culture, the culture of the young, and the culture of the community within the walls of education. These experiences move me to come outside of my comfort zone into students’ and instructors’ educational system that may test my views, and expand my knowledge at Okanagan College.
I hold the truth in my heart.
And the learning systems of knowledge I embrace.
There you are.
My views can be controversial at times. Not only to raise awareness for you reading my blog, but it also raises awareness in me in ways that I share, care and express. My blog 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 is 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 is those in my faith community, my college community, those in our town, and the surrounding area I sense is something to share and available to be read.
The profiles I bring to you can be conversational pieces of literary language that let others step inside a room where we view others who have something to say and to come away thinking, hmmm, exciting, 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.
My blog’s content may interest be related to the local news, the writing and digital community, the tourism industry of the Valley and beyond; however, my blog is too new for this to be anything but a window of parts that I haven’t developed.
My blog is where community meets my feet
where you are
where we meet.

I hope your studies go well, you are on the home stretch. When I used to run 10 km I used all my energy on the sprint for the last 500 metres. Allow me to encourage you not to let up your focus, but plan toasted marshmallows on the beach on your last day! Best wishes.
