At my sons school yesterday, we celebrated book week.

The parents were able to come into the school and have lunch with their child in a picnic setting. It was a great day, I brang the UNO cards, my son played a few rounds with his friend. I ended up on the picnic blanket alone when he ran to play with his friends after apologising many times to me.

Once the picnic finished, the day followed on with an amazing hour in the school hall watching each grade show their costumes in a parade, teachers reinacted a book about crayons, children from the dance crew performed a song about reading, a child read a poem.

The day was filled with the importance of books and all the characters we know to this day from the best books we’ve read along the way… Some kids dressed as where’s Wally, Cat in…

This is Willie, a cheerful man who is currently living under the Burrard bridge. I was fortunate enough to have him tell me his story while passing out triple-berry jammy sandwiches this past weekend. Willie was polite and patient with me when I asked him questions about his life story, and gave me his enthusiastic consent when I asked for his permission to share it.

Willie travelled from New Brunswick to provinces all around Canada, including Saskatchewan, Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia. He was back and forth between provinces to find work, but, unfortunately, to no avail. He held random jobs here and there as a dishwasher, but wanted to find things related to construction as he likes hands-on labour. Despite meeting tough conditions in life, Willie has remained positive and cheerful, which is exemplified in the message from John Lennon’s song that he would like to pass on to…

My Memoir: GOING CRAZY, from Horror to Hope

Source: My Memoir: GOING CRAZY, from Horror to Hope

I can relate to the part of your post where you say you find it hard to “pick up where you left off.” Perhaps there is a reason it is happening, but regardless I encourage you to press on. It sounds like you have a great story waiting to be told. I hope your fingers and your “self” allows you to get it all out one day. -OM

I can’t even believe that it’s been a year. On the first day of Sunny September, out of an impulse I created a WordPress blog. I don’t remember  from where I got the inspiration, but somehow the name “Trablogger” came to my mind and fortunately it was available. And thus I took my first step.

When I look back, it was one of the best things  that happened to me so far. It gave me confidence, direction and a purpose.  All of your likes and comments were/are so encouraging. It obviously gave me the much-needed confidence. When I look at it now, it might have even made me a bit arrogant, that I even started to give Photography advises like an expert on that field. Still I’m just another self learned amateur photography enthusiast.
