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.
It’s amazing when you write where it can take you. True. Not every day looks or feels the same, and sometimes we just need to take a break from even the good stuff. Rest. And go at it again tomorrow.

May 2021 see us all rise to new occasions and opportunities. Fill our cup. Stay safe and well and kind.
