My friend James Kwantes was in Red Deer on holidays this week. Originally from B.C., James and his wife Shannon lived in Red Deer for a few years as he worked at a job for the local paper. 2 years ago he returned to BC to work for the Vancouver Sun as a copy editor.
I’ve always appreciated James. His sense of humour, sense of justice and ability to just shoot the breeze really seem to jive with mine. Our conversations are always engaging, and it was great to catch up with him. I was reminded of an article he wrote about U2, a band we just both happen to think is #1. Check it out, it’s worth the read.
James also writes a regular column in the Red Deer Advocate about life in Lotus Land.
