A new program coming to CICK 93.9FM. Past Present Future. Here is your opportunity to reminisce about your childhood, to speak about what is happening now, for example: newly retired, planning on taking a cruise, travel to places just dreamed about or volunteering in your community. What do you see in the future? Kids, grandkids, even great grandkids. What are your hopes for them, for the world around us? Maybe when you were younger you dreamed of flying a plane, visiting far off places, writing a book, did you do any of these things or accomplish something different? What are your hobbies? So much that you can share. Call me and we can talk 250-847-4797.

Closing with: gnomic – characterized by aphorism. Given to the composition of aphoristic writing. A gnome is an aphorism- an observation or sentiment reduced to the form of a saying. Sometimes couched in metaphorical or figurative language, often clever, always concise. We began using gnomic, the adjective form of gnome in the late 18th century, describing a style of writing, or sometimes speech characterized by pithy phrases, sometimes terse to the point of mysteriousness.
