My own footstep on the moon

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

On July 20, 1969, a man named Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon.
On March 9, 2019, a man named Paul Knowles set foot on the moon. Well, let’s be honest, here – I actually stood on a Plexiglas circle set into the floor, in the centre of which was a three-inch piece of moon rock.

A surprising find in a small Swiss town

By Paul Knowles (First published in the New Hamburg Independent and other Metroland community newspapers)

We small-town Canadians have a lot to learn about how to nurture and celebrate arts and culture. As a guy who has been deeply involved in this field for many years – as a writer, as an arts presenter, and as a volunteer on arts organizations – it’s tempting to throw a few stones at targets around the region.

When art and science don’t meet

By Paul Knowles (First published in Metroland Community Newspapers)

Don’t you just love it when your brain comes together? According to the omniscient internet, the left side of our brains controls things like science, while the right side does stuff like art. A week or so ago, it all came together for me. I took on a project that challenged both sides of my brain – and in the end, they both failed, miserably and equally.

The Fête des Vignerons 2019!

By joyoftravel.ca news services

Recognized by UNESCO on its list of intangible cultural heritage, the Fête des Vignerons brings generations together, connecting people from the villages, the countryside and the vineyards, locals and foreigners, and offers each one the opportunity to go beyond himself, to transcend and collectively participate in a show unique in the world, one which takes place only once in a generation.

PGA National Resort is a destination in its own right

By Paul Knowles (first published in www.foreveryoungnews.com)

It’s not news that the state of Florida is jam-packed with possibilities for visitors. In fact, there is probably not a tougher market in the world for a tourist attraction to establish itself as a premier destination. So when a resort that is not located right on the water manages that feat, it’s worthy of note. We’re talking the PGA National Resort and Spa, in Palm Beach Gardens. Now, to be fair, the resort is only about a 20-minute drive from several beaches on the Atlantic, but that’s not the reason people come here.
