Love at First Click…..A knitter meets a soldier with a photography hobby
This story was ignited by a story of love. It was 39 years ago that Donna spied James across a room. Mustering courage, she sauntered over with a big smile and asked, “Do you want to dance?” That was it – they have been swaying, sock-hopping, waltzing, tangoing, and quick-stepping through a very busy life. Donna, a fellow educator and avid knitter, encouraged me to retrieve my needles and return to the craft. James, a former city manager for a number of Canada’s largest cities, never fails to delight us with his municipal leadership stories. They are both enthusiastic birders, travelers and are passionate about serving others. Donna and James particularly love ravens for their intelligence and symbolism. On weekends, they can be found birding with Raven, their black border collie mix, in tow, as weekend photographer James captures striking photos of birds. Their devotion to each other while serving their community through government and education is inspiring!
