The Occasional Smile

“”I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I have been.” Winnie-the-Pooh”

I believed I could dig all the way to far away countries just by a shovel digging In the sand at the beach. Now, we can look at the world where we are and not have to travel to experience culture and new friends by allowing ourselves to be open and engage not so much by using a shovel in the sand to try to reach another world but by a click we can walk in a garden of beautiful people.

Today, I was walking on campus, there were milliseconds of moments where I glanced at random passersby, smiled engaged with others and went on my way. Then something unexpected happened, I accidentally walked up the steps to the library on the wrong side, so it was me, dodging students, smiling and trying to get up safely, It was awkward, but, I received many awkward smiles back. People are very gracious. It’s in these kinds of humbling moments that make me giggle even in brief encounters of sharing an occasional smile.

My name is Christine, this is my footprint on the Web

I write about people in the Okanagan Valley and beyond who capture my interest while I’m on the move. 

I work in the community as well as I attend full time studies at Okanagan College. I am progressing more towards engaging more fully in our community by bringing awareness of what I see that’s worth sharing.

  • Unpacking learned views and ideas from those who have touched my life.
  • Engaging in dialogue via interview/conversation with others on issues and points of interest– places not always seen,  to the public eye but worth exploring.

Bear with me; this is my first attempt at blogging, which started from my digital media class, and this is such a great experience for me to learn and work through and continue.
