It's amazing where the dreams of your childhood will take you. It's even more amazing the places you'll go and the experiences you'll have that you never could have dreamed of. From my childhood farm to Mali … from the Canadian prairies to Kenya for a safari … from the cold and snow of Edmonton to the sun and sand of Mexico ... from a career in teaching to writing … from under the wheels of a car to months of rehab … I've had the extreme good fortune to live a full and rich life and in this collection, I've shared a few of those experiences, most of which are humorous.
