Welcome! I am a Canadian gramma who lives a mobile life, mostly between Nanaimo and Calgary, where I run a business doing technical writing for the mechanical industry.
I grew up in northern BC, tramping through the bush and communing with birds and trees. I do miss the quiet and solitude of that kind of life but for now I am where I need to be. Work helps pay for my adventures!
But I am a Nature Girl still. You can take the girl out of the country, but, well… you know. Thankfully, Canada has lots of beautiful vistas to enjoy and gentle Vancouver Island breezes sooth my spirit when I need it.
My education is in computers and I have worked on contract with some of Canada’s major oil and gas companies in their web departments, but now I am working on manuals at my own company, New Dawn Manuals Ltd.
One of my main hobbies is researching data on a particular ancient civilization (more to come on that in the Archaeology section). Another is researching my family tree, particularly the Kirkpatrick and Bowe branches.
More recently, I have grown extremely interested in the SIRIUS Disclosure Project. I have completed two weeks’ training with Dr. Steven Greer to become a CE-5 ambassador and have started up a group in Nanaimo. Contact me if you would like to know more about this. Here is a story about my first (remembered) contact as a teen.
I love to travel, explore, and examine alternative points of view. So, this blog will be all about these interests, friends and family, and good times.
