So long, farewell

After two and a half years and about 120 profiles, it is time for me to take a break from the Muskoka Mosaic and focus more on my own fiction writing.

It has been a rare pleasure to get to know so many members of my community and to introduce them to their neighbours. Thank you to everyone who has suggested a person to profile, agreed to be a profile subject, or let me know that you were reading each week.

New Forester employee Pamela Steel will continue with my brainchild starting next week, and you will be able to read her profiles on the newspaper's website. I wish her well and look forward to learning more about the spectacular mosaic of people who make up Huntsville.

Thanks again.
