    Gone Coastal on the Sunshine Coast

    Travel is an integral part of my life, and if I can, I like to slip away from the city as often as I can. And when I’ve lost my muse and I need a little breather, I head to the tranquility of the sunshine coast. Here are a few pics from my latest trip! Summer was in full bloom Two exquisite and regal Eagles watch over their nest dutifully If you ever need recommendations for the Sunshine Coast, I wouldn’t hesitate to include this little gem for sure!

    Anthropology Spotlight: What is Culture?

    There are about 20-30 different academic definitions of the word “culture”. But it’s really more than just a word. It’s a word that conjures up all sorts of images, emotions, opinions and beliefs. From the 15th century until as recently as the late 1900’s, it was widely accepted by the conquering West, that “natives” (indigenous people’s) were savage and simple, to be treated more like unruly animals than human beings. Western Europeans believed lover’s of philosophy, art and music were closer to nature, and therefore “cultured”. Ironically, indigenous people’s or First Nation’s as they are called here in Canada, had (and still have) cultures that were (are) defined by nature.…
