Thank you for stopping by!  I am making an update to my original introduction from nine years ago.   I am still on my journey through the mystery of life.  I am still passionate about history.

I have moved from my original family home, to a farm in the country- which is a huge learning curve; it is partially the reason for my absence here.  I am also an educator, and teaching takes up the majority of my time.  My family and the arts take up the rest.

Originally I started this blog as a general creative hobby, but it turned into a place to share my love of history.  In the coming months, I would like to experiment reconnecting the two passions on this site.

Thank you for sharing the journey,



(Original Greeting)


Thank you for reading this page!  I am a woman that has a zest for life, love and mystery.  This comes in the form of daily events- the questions of my little girl, the shape of a cloud, the whisper in the wind, and the daily events of our society.

Passions: Family, friends, Music (loud), velvet, poetry, literature, acrylic, sculpture, photography, antiques, architecture, philosophy, spirituality, news, 317, cooking, education…so much more…

    Your Grandmother’s efforts drew me to you – but in browsing your site I seem to be looking in a mirror! It’s comforting to know there is someone else who thinks like me. Wonderful work and thoughts – please keep it up!

    You have a very nice site – thank you for putting it online.
    I came to it because I am tracing the Esson family and I arrived at Robert Esson and your web site. I found census records today which show Robert and Jane Ann and their family at Fredericksburgh in 1851 and Napanee in 1871. I read a person on another web site says he has found their unmarked graves too – at Riverside cemetery in Napanee. Robert was the son of John Esson, born in Aberdeenshire in my own families ancestors, in a pretty area – Deeside or Cromar more specifically. I haven’t added all the links to Montreal and a lot of other research yet, but I have left the website address whiich tells you a little bit about the Essons in Aberdeenshire a little. You might like to take a look as the family is easy to trace back to around 1690 or so. Also I will leave an email and if you wish to get in touch, you can – and I can let you have some more information, and also learn some more from you too with luck, Once again thank you for your lovely site.

    • Thank you Michael,
      I will gladly look at your Website (I looked already, and I can’t wait to read more!) I need to review the story myself to be able to better share my family history, but I am very interested in doing so! Hopefully we can keep in touch!
