Welcome to Randy’s Web Corner
In these posts, you’ll find a few ways Randy (and Chris) explore the world. The world is a bit hectic right now, and so am I – so the transparency here is an attempt to balance the joys of life and my relationships, including one with a cycle of depression, overcoming that and preparing for a healthy future.
From family, friends, “framily” and searching for universal truths (and great cocktails)- here you will find some self-reflections, hopes, dreams, and musings of a hobbit-shaped French-Canadian. I want to live fully and laugh more. I’m open to your suggestions on how!
