The Lost Arts on CTV-Ottawa News

CTV-Ottawa (especially Joanne Schnurr) did an excellent job on Part One of The Lost Arts special series. The Letter Writing Revolution and Cooking at Home with your Kids were featured this evening. If you missed it or you are not in the CTV-Ottawa viewing region, you can see the clip here if you scroll down beneath the CTV News Video Player to Reviving The Lost Arts of Cooking and Letter-Writing.

There is also a photo gallery (with captions)of some of the letters my grandparents wrote to one another in the early part of their courtship and marriage. You can read the actual letters here or read more about TLWR and my grandparents treasured letters here.

The revolution is growing!

I'll be updating the blog momentarily!


  1. How wonderful to see you on tv! The revolution IS growing! Oh, and I think I owe you a letter...

  2. revolution is growing, indeed! i recently discovered a chronicle of letters i had written (but never sent) to a friend nearly 20 years ago and i'm having fun sharing and exploring some excerpts on my blog -- a very personal reflection on adolescent literacies!

    thanks for your blog -- a source of constant inspiration and joy!



I need to know that this revolution is growing and impacting the masses. Your comments motivate me! Please take the time to let me know how TLWR is working for you.
