Lasting Lessons Beyond the Classroom is Allan Carswell’s third book in less than a year—a memorable year at that. To top it off he was recently presented with the Order of Ontario for his significant contributions to the field of laser-imaging technology and the development of related space instrumentation, a much-deserved honour to add to the previously awarded Order of Canada and Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Allan Carswell’s writing exudes a lifetime of experience and wisdom in Lasting Lessons, sharing stories from his youth with insightful details.
Hearts Linked by Courage by Alzheimer Society of York Region represents a thoughtful and diverse compilation from a variety of generous contributors, reminding us that this disease knows no boundaries. To a large degree, anyone can be affected, and the road is often long and arduous on many fronts. I believe by continuing to educate ourselves and engage in caring conversations about a disease that affects so many, we can help to shift the narrative. Those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementias are so much more than their disease.
It’s a sacred opportunity to rest, to connect more deeply to life, to ourselves and others, and to be an example to our loved ones including children of all ages, and to our community. Partnering with Hospice Georgina, we are giving away two of our beautiful e-books in the Hearts Linked by Courage collection. Our goal with this book series is to provide hope and encouragement through all the brave stories shared… It’s time now more than ever, to use our words, thoughts, and deeds for good. Words can inspire, build confidence, and even exude the warmth of an embrace. Let’s pass it on and pay it forward.

I will make a little more time for comfort and sanctuary this season. I won’t try to figure it all out. I won’t be hard on myself if I don’t get the tree up. Maybe it’ll happen. Maybe it won’t. Either way, it’s okay. Christmas is always in my heart. I will embrace a day at a time. Enjoy the moments with family. Hugs. Smiles. Laughter. Tears. Breaking bread. Counting blessings. Looking forward to the new year.
