What I have learned working with Tina

As I wind down my time in Vancouver I find I have been in reflection mode a lot.  Moving cities brings with it a multitude of emotions that need to be worked through.  There is excitement beyond measure at the changes ahead; I find myself dreaming of lounging in my new back garden and finding new little coffee spots and walking along the breakwater and there are also wistful moments as I think about leaving my beloved family and friends....

What does this New Year hold for any of us? We can think of...
