Shortly after I came out to British Columbia in early 2006 I had a case of severely high blood pressure. It wouldn't have been fair to an employer for me to work for them until I got my health situation sorted out. I was on medications to lower the blood pressure and it took until early 2007 to find the cause. I finally went to a naturopath who found that a microscopic parasite was the cause for all this.

While getting my health in order, I took up blogging to share my photography. This way I wasn't wasting time and others got to enjoy the photos, not just me and those close to me.

In May of this year I had a mini-stroke cause again by severely high blood pressure. I may end up gong to the naturopath again since the specialist and other MDs can't seem to find the cause. This has only been a problem out here. Before that in Ontario, the blood pressure was only marginally high, not severely high like in BC.

Knowledge is good because being forewarned is forearmed!

All that said, enjoy this blog and all the photos I share with you.

The Heralding of Spring

Its now March 3rd and spring is close at hand here on the west coast, well, the Greater Vancouver area in British Columbia's lower mainland anyway. Here's a photo of snowdrops in the grass at Stanley Park in Vancouver. There are more photos to come as the season progresses. Have a great week!

I promised you I would drop by - I had no idea you had three blogs. The two I entered were wonderful, great thoughts and fabulous photographs. You are clearly a man of many gifts. I expect an admission pass to your photo gallery!

Glad you love the two that you were able to see. As for the third, its a work platform where Brad-lee (Brad) and I discuss the business of setting up online, setting up a website for the purpose of selling photos and various forms. That website will be open to eveyone once its up and running sometime this year. The third blog (a journal) is for this reason private so we can both discuss things openly and honestly before things appear on the website.
