Other Writers

I have difficulty keeping up with the writing needed to keep this site fresh, so, the answer – other writers. Current contributors:

  • Morgan Waters, my niece, who wrote about coming back to Canada after years in the middle-east.
  • Jonathan Potter, my son-in-law, who has contributed two poems. Jonathan has published a number of books of poetry.
  • And most recently Anastasia Mourogova Millin. Anastasia is my partner in Ombrello Solutions. We have a web site under construction so in the meantime, her contribution provides insight into our collaboration.

I hope to have more contributions – even from those who may disagree with me.

Coming Home!

March 30, 2021

Morgan Waters, March 2021 You know that old saying, “you can never go home again”?  I think it might be true – at least a little bit. I left Canada in 2005 with a big yellow backpack and no idea when I’d return. Thirteen years later I came back for good. I was a little […]
