2024 Begins

So it begins—here we go again.  The door has opened to 2024 and, as usual, I know little about what I will actually do in the year, and much about what I plan to do.  They never work out to be the same, but that keeps life interesting, eh?


For the first time in a long time I’m starting 2024 with some trepidation about the following:

  • The ongoing wars and potential for others.

  • The high level of indebtedness of Western World countries.

  • The lack of moisture in our part of the world creating the likelihood of more forest fires.

Then there is the big one,

  • I’m turning 80 years old this year!

I’ll be trying to improve my photography and my writing, spending time with family, all whilst trying to keep fit.  My wife and I will do some travelling, but it won’t be far.  Our limits will probably be Saskatchewan to the east and British Columbia to the west.


Generally I’m looking forward to 2024.


Cochrane continues to grow both in population and housing.  I wish it could stay as it is, but the future is promising more growth in Canada’s so I’ll have to adjust my feelings about the inevitable.
