It's amazing where the dreams of your childhood will take you. It's even more ​ amazing the places you'll go and the experiences you'll have that you never ​could have dreamed of. From my childhood farm to Mali … from the Canadian ​prairies to Kenya for a safari … from the cold and snow of Edmonton to the ​sun and sand of Mexico ... from a career in teaching to writing … from under ​the wheels of a car to months of rehab … I've had the extreme good fortune to​ live a full and rich life and in this collection, I've shared a few of those ​experiences, most of which are humorous.
