Hello

Greetings All.

My name is Richard and I shall be your host as you travel through this website and visit my associated social media venues.

The image to the left is indeed me, and was created by son Colin, who is quite the talented individual (at least some of which came from me of course).

My Story

In the past I never considered that I lead an overly interesting life, however I have since learned that "interesting" is very subjective and has a variety of concepts.

I have not been much of a dare-devil or thrill-seeker but I have done things and been places that many others have not. However, it seems that there are those who enjoy my recollecting of these occasions, and that is one of the reasons that I have chosen to create this website and my associated social media platforms. Another reason is to share some of my thoughts and various media, because generally, sharing is good.

I had a career in Canada's military, have worked for various charities and non profits, had several businesses and prior to retirement worked on a casual basis at a local Royal Canadian Mounted Police detachment. I have lived in Canada literally coast to coast to coast and yet seem to have merely touched the surface of what our country has to offer.

Generally I can be found in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, spending most of the summer riding my motorcycle, or in Melaka, Malaysia, relaxing and traveling to visit family and friends (except not right now with Covid messing things up).

 

I have two wonderful children, and through marriage, have gained two more along with seven grandchildren. I love people and yet spend an inordinate amount of time by myself. I am not shy about saying that I like/respect/admire someone, may offer criticisms of those I don't, but I refuse to publicly badmouth or speak in a derogatory form about anyone.

I generally avoid pontificating about politics or religion, however I will often speak on social issues and at times when I believe that injustices have occurred.

Some of the words and visuals that I share may be thoughtful, some witty, some perhaps silly. Whatever it is, it is all from me. I welcome any who wish to follow me, and I welcome any feedback, as long as it is not rude or vulgar, in which case it will be ignored and deleted.
