I started this blog six years ago primarily so that my extended family on the other side of the world could read about what we were doing. It has become a scrapbook of  our lives chronicling events, some significant, others trivial. I have written mostly about my family here in Canada, and only occasionally about my family in Australia. My older brother David has recently started a blog, Macarisms; you can read the first post to find out about the name.  His motivation for beginning the blog has come out of his current battle with lung cancer and is best expressed in his words:

“My desire for this blog is that people will be blessed as they read and think about life. My hope is to help people to reflect on the good life, to stop and consider what’s really worth having.”

If you know David you might already be reading his blog, if not please check it out. If you don’t know David, I would love to introduce you.
