A cold snap across Canada. In St. John's, it's minus 16C today with the windchill. But a brief walk in the nearby White Hills was both enervating and soothing. Back home, brewed some rosehip tea on the woodstove from a handful of hips collected on the walk.

Andy Jones wins Winterset Award

Yeah, this isn't about braving waves or speaking out on development issues. No, this is quite a different post. It's about celebrating tradition and a bit (a lot) of myth, storytelling, superb creativity and writing, amazing illustration.... It's about recognizing one of Canada's (but we claim him gratefully in Newfoundland) greatest storytellers: Andy Jones, who today won the 2012 BMO Winterset Award for his book Jack & Mary in the Land of Thieves. An award worth $10,000. Way to storytell Andy. You are one of our very best.

Check out my recent article, Paddling in Paradise (that's Newfoundland, of course), in Hanoi's East and
West Traveler Magazine. You may have to fly to Vietnam to read it...

south coast. just one image

paddling south coast of newfoundland. mainly cliffs. big ones. gigantic. gargantuan ones. ah, but you can't imagine (unless you've been in any) but here, in a small harbour just off, a view from man o'war cove (resettled - aren't they all!). no cliffs, surprisely, just a pretty little harbour.
