By Andrew Zuliani, Aurora ON. My name is Andrew and I am photographer based in Aurora, Ontario. A few days ago, I was frustrated, I could not take any good looking photos or videos. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Instagram and Facebook looking at pictures of famous photographers who have a fan-base filled …

Christmas Eve Past I remember Christmas eve with snow and the glow of my parent’s house. I remember skiing the golf course hills and the thrills as the red sun set. I can feel again the chilly air as I stare ahead at my swift, strong, big brother. I see the faces of laughing, joyful …

Christmas is coming and what can I write? I’m upset by the news both in daytime and night. Each Christmas I write down a poem with my thoughts, They are usually merry, but this year they’re not, For there are wars going on in so many places And migrants are moving to unprepared nations. Yes, …

By K. Taylor, Aurora ON.  For reasons that eludes me, we are fond of describing tracts of land as “belts.” There’s America’s rust belt and the bible belt. Up here we have the snow belt and the ever contentious Ontario Greenbelt. Ah yes…the greenbelt. “The greenbelt,” you say scratching your head. “Yes I’ve heard of …

By K. Taylor, Aurora ON. I planted a garden this year. A wee little patch, five foot by five foot at most. To be fair, I’ve gardened for years, our tiny scrap of grass was long ago ripped up by my long suffering handyman…er…husband and replaced with a pond, a small patio and clusters of …

Golf courses in our neighbourhood may be a ‘thing of the past‘. The next generation definitely has different interests and golf may not be one of them. Consequently what has happened to Glenway Country Club in Newmarket then potentially is bound to happen here in Aurora to our former Highland Gate Golf Club. No matter what actions already …

By Paul McIntosh, Aurora ON. It doesn’t take long here in Aurora as you drive around in and just outside of town before you see them, the trees. Rising up and providing a glorious spectacle of green throughout the warmer months and a dazzling spray of colours for us in the fall. We are blessed …

It would shortly be Christmas and all through the day I was thinking and wondering what I should say. The world was so different; it was quite a surprise. Should l be honest; would that be wise. The Middle East mess can keep me up at night, And ignoring global warming had never been right. …
