Imperfection Perfection

  A year ago today I was leaving California after being there for over five months. I went to  California because my brother was seriously ill. Meanwhile, Covid was creating a new passage for everyone. My time at home was an extended gift, not perfect but perfect. A year since I have seen my family it feels so odd yet familiar. So much more happened this year than I ever dared imagine.   This shattered pitcher I bought the other day at the brocante. It is from the 1700s and many many moons ago ...

How to Enjoy Madrid’s Literary Quarter – The Gorgeous Barrio de Las Letras

In the “literary quarter” in Madrid, poetry spills across the streets in flattened golden letters. Bodegas serve cerveza, bitter green olives and fried potato til near the break of dawn.

Horseback Riding in Banff: Trail Riders Experience

Horseback riding is not really my thing. I’ve been petrified of horses since my horse-crazy mother put me on a pony when I was five. And it’s not for lack of trying. I have been on trail rides all over Canada – from PEI to Ontario and Alberta. I even gamely hopped on a horse in Costa Rica and splashed through rivers and held on for dear life as we climbed up and down muddy mountains for literally hours. But despite all my time on a horse, I remain unskilled and know any horse I ride smells my fe...

A narrow and overgrown old Tokyo restaurant that’s somehow still standing

Tokyo changes fast, and of late, that speed of change seems to have picked up even further, with the likes of dated little bars and shops in particular disappearing. In the newly created space below, however, it was a relatively large and modern building that fell foul of the bulldozers, whereas its old and overgrown neighbour somehow survived. In so many of these cases, the patched up and often corrugated sides of suddenly exposed structures are incredibly revealing, but this tiny restaurant a...

We should not mourn the passing of Pepper the robot

A few years back, we had Pepper the robot to visit as a short-term houseguest. Once you got over the playful-but-power-hungry glow of its eyes, the $1,800, “emotion-reading” robot was a decent entertainer: cavorting somewhere between Duplo and Netflix in its capacity to captivate two under-sixes for an afternoon.

Exploring California’s Majestic Mountain Loop

California is shockingly and practically embarrassingly large. It could easily be split into three or four states without anyone batting an eye. That makes visiting and exploring the state a challenge at times, especially when one is caught up seeing only the major cities. While amazing, cities like L.A. or San Francisco don’t have what the state is perhaps most known for, its incredible natural treasures. On a recent trip along the Majestic Mountain Loop I had the great opportunity to visi...
