So having moved out west to Alberta in 2012, one of the allures was being able to head to the hills for quick vacations. Big hills ie The Rockies.
Last year we made it to Banff and this weekend we are heading to Lake Louise. Pictures of it look gorgeous such as:
Seeing it in person should be a stunning experience.
Another trip we plan to do this year is to go to Jasper and see the glacier field.
In the near two years we have moved from Ontario to Alberta things have been going very well. Our son’s school marks have improved drastically as has his attitude about school. We are ecstatic on that front. On the home front, we are mortgage free and very happy with our living space. Finally, on the job front since moving out here, my wages have increased by almost a quarter. Very nice. Even better, the work is interesting and my work team is composed of a great bunch of guys to work. The clients are also an excellent bunch.
It’s been win, win, all around.
Things are on the writing front are pretty well stalled. The mantra is to write everyday but without a mapped out story, I find such advice impractical. It’s not for a lack of ideas but for me the stumbling block is creating interesting characters to dramatize those ideas. And that process always takes time for me.
