Column: One year later, the transition from work to retirement continues
I was surprised at how quickly I transitioned from the world of work. My scope of interests changed so rapidly. Family, friends and faith became even more important to me and I appreciated simple every day things to a greater depth. I take great joy in sharing a coffee with a young CEO who remarks when he leaves: “Thank you for sharing your experience. I always come away with one thought I can use when we meet.” What more could one ask for?

Column: My March Madness bracket won’t win, but I’m in anyway
The most fun I had with the tournament came in 2013 when the sports editor I was working with at the time, who was a basketball fan, and I both picked Louisville to win it all. After the Cardinals victory I immediately accused him of copying my bracket and relying upon my great insight into the game in order to properly pick the winner. Being the good friend I am, I’ve been teasing him mercilessly about it ever since.

Column: Feeling at home thanks to Stan Rogers' music
They played with such skill, love and reverence for the music without treating it as a sacred artifact. It was alive to them and they made each song their own without dimming the essential truth of the piece. They were not Rogers, but they weren’t trying to be. They just wanted to share that music with the audience and have the audience become part of the music.

Column: How I would have come to love Canada's "new" flag

Column: These great youths do Hamilton proud
Last Saturday night I met a remarkable young woman by the name of Jasmine Francis. She’s a Bishop Ryan grad who’s in the first year of a psychology degree that she hopes will lead her into practice working with teens and youths. She was a four-year honours student, on the school’s indoor and outdoor track and field team, the dance team, the step squad, the cheerleading team, the soccer team, and worked with the breakfast club, yearbook club, athletic committee and graduation committee. Oh yeah, and she’s also a musician, having spent nine years with the Hamilton Youth Steel Orchestra.
