In his first entry to this year's showcase, Syd reflects on his late mom's life in a moving compilation entitled MOM - SOME THOUGHTS AND MEMORIES. I am sure you will appreciate it as much as I have. To read Syd's contribution, please click here.
I was born in a little ski town that used to be a gold mining town in the mountains of southeastern British Columbia. I also lived on the coast, on Vancouver Island, in the north, and even in northern Alberta for a decade. I visited every province and territory in Canada, and more than 40 other countries. I was an educator, an innkeeper, and an assisted living facilitator. My life was rich with experiences before I left Canada less than two months before my 61st birthday.
Uruguay, has been our home for more than a decade. My wife and I share our home with our five dogs. Prior to 2020, we had international visitors every year. We also continued to travel, particularly in South America. In fact, we returned from a vacation in Brazil in March, re-entering Uruguay five minutes before the borders were closed. They have not re-opened. We will just have to remain in our wonderful home in our adopted country for the time being.
