Tsuu T’ina Nation

By on July 31, 2017

On my return from Banff, where I was taking a photography course with Learn Photography Canada, I decided to stop at the Tsuu T’ina Nation Pow Wow in Bragg Creek. It was spectacular! I wandered around, practicing with my Nikon. I have always admired the First Nations people for their simplicity and wisdom. I appreciate their […]

Progress!

By on July 25, 2017

Well, after the past four months of trying to cram as much knowledge as I can into this poor, tired brain of mine, and spending a great deal of that time thinking I was fighting a losing battle, I finally feel like I am making real progress! I am actually learning something about WordPress, photography, […]

Grassi Lakes

By on July 23, 2017

I had a wonderful day at Grassi Lakes. This was a favourite family hike when my husband was alive and the children were young enough either to have time or not object to hanging out with mum and dad! I still enjoy it. I love the drive out from Calgary. I like to take Highway […]

Street Folk

By on July 14, 2017

Today I met a wonderfully sweet man by the name of Dave. He was sleeping on a bench on 17th Avenue when I first passed him. On my return journey I decided to stop and chat. He told me he had grown up in Montgomery before it was part of Calgary. He reminisced of fishing […]

Transitioning……

By on July 11, 2017

As much as it sounds fantastic to up and quit your job, sell your house and head off into the wild, blue yonder, it can be a little unnerving. I discovered that, when I no longer needed to go to work and began to put my plan into action, I felt as if I had […]

My new home!!

By on July 6, 2017

Well, it took a lot of time and research to find an RV I was happy with. They are very expensive and, the smaller they are, the more costly and in demand they are, or so it seems. I originally wanted a campervan (aka Class B), but a decent used one that isn’t too old […]

San Diego……trial run.

By on June 5, 2017

As I attempt to embark on this new path I find myself distracted and straying off in many different directions. One of them happened to be a trip to San Diego. When I planned the trip in February, my house wasn’t on the market yet, and so I thought I’d fly to San Diego in […]

Stumbling along……..

By on May 27, 2017

I am so blessed! You know, the way I talk, you’d think I had something to do with choosing to turn my back on convention and hit the road! Actually, I’m just stumbling along…… If it hadn’t been for my husband leaving this life very suddenly one day in 2013, I would still be home […]

Why the name?

By on May 25, 2017

Someone asked me why I decided on “Just Passing Through”. Well, as with travel, life is a journey. We are always moving towards something, away from something else. As we journey on, we shed our old skin and reveal the new. We learn, we grow, thus the shedding. And before this earthly life, we were […]

Photography 101

By on May 11, 2017

As I am about to embark on the trip of a lifetime……maybe the trip for the balance of my lifetime…..I am attempting to equip myself with some basic tools, as in, how to take a decent photo! If you talked to any of my offspring about my photography skills, they would probably groan and do […]

Remembering Rob….

By on March 3, 2017

Canadian activist and film maker, Rob Stewart, came into my life 6 years ago, when my youngest daughter, Hannah, introduced me to his film, “Sharkwater“. She was thirteen and had been impacted by his film so much that she changed her lifestyle and became vegan. She also began her life of activism by attending demonstrations […]

Welcome to my world!!

By on October 26, 2016

    Life is full of wonderful events, changes, people, never static. At least, my life isn’t, and I love it! We are so blessed with technology that can transport us to anywhere in the world, with just a click. The horizons open and lay at our feet. The possibilities are infinite.  Join me on […]
