Keeping It Simple (in photography and life) 

Get to the heart of the matter in your photographs and your life.
With photographer and blogger Kim Manley Ort.
As many parents in Niagara are well aware, there appears to be an ongoing strike (not confirmed at the time of this writing) within the Niagara Catholic District School Board. It is entirely feasible for me to curate an awesome kids' camp for next week, featuring leadership exercises, art and crafts, physical exercise, French conversation, and loads of other learning activities. If this would be of interest to you, please let me know asap and I'll make it happen!
Here's something fun: This week's column in Niagara This Week/The Town Crier:
Six degrees of community in the Collaboratory
Please take this engaging 3-minute quiz so I can stop pondering and start programming!
In the weeks to come: beautiful, useful and contemporary woodworking projects; Women and Finance (which is even more attractive when you learn it's led by Geoff Hoover); how to produce and record music; art attacks; beekeeping; announcing Human Library books; 3 different types of meditation; Feldenkrais; music workshops; loads of kids' activities; and the very exciting 'more'! I promise to keep you posted for as long as you'll let me.

Please note: Activities are only confirmed after the registration of at least 5 participants. So please avail yourself of the RSVP button on the calendar postings, or just email me at Thanks!
