This land is our land

By Paul Knowles

The eight of us came from almost every part of this country – one from Nova Scotia, two from Quebec, three from Ontario, one from Alberta, and one from B.C. When we compared notes about our hometowns, the settings were very different, from proximity to lighthouses to proximity to mountains. And the languages we speak at home are different – six spoke English, two, French.

United by the Border: Explore San Diego and Baja's Binational Spirit 

By news services

Pristine beaches and vibrant neighborhoods make San Diego the ultimate beach city, but its relationship and proximity to Baja California, Mexico, makes San Diego a unique destination unlike any other in the U.S., where art, architecture, cuisine and more build cultural bridges on both sides of the border.
At less than 20 miles from downtown San Diego, the busiest border crossing in the world connects the city with Tijuana, Rosarito, Ensenada and Guadalupe Valley, a cluster of cities known for their rich artistic and culinary offerings. Here, a continuous exchange of ideas, flavors and traditions shape San Diego's cultural, historic and culinary identity. San Diego welcomes visitors from around the world to experience this binational spirit first hand.

Outside of our comfort zone

By Paul Knowles (first published in the New Hamburg Independent)

Let me make it clear, right off the top, that it is a terrific assignment. I’ve been asked to write a major feature for the United Church Observer about Martin Luther, on this 500th anniversary of the Reformation. This meant I was sent to walk in Luther’s footsteps in Germany for a week, trying to learn everything I could while we were there. It’s a great gig.
