Wholesome is that which “tends to produce moral or general well-being.”

I feel this definition is important to communicate to our community as I have recently seen local writing that seems to leer at my use of the term “wholesome.”

I care for the community, I place all others before me and I do so willingly without limit. For the first time since I started caring for the environment, I was away for a short while and then injured myself camping on Mayne Island about 10 days ago. I am feeling much better and hope to be back out in my yellow shirt within the next few days.

To talk of things on behalf of and to the benefit of the whole, this is my path. To communicate openly without fear, to answer every question and address concerns in our community. All who ask questions or make statements will be answered until clarity is achieved.

Do people have to understand everything… No! It is absolutely impossible to understand everything about almost anything. Let us go with what feels proper for the benefit of our community. Thinking, feeling and voting with the heart.

I do intend to stand for election to council of the District of Sooke. Communication that is direct and replies that openly convey information are what we already have in the District of Sooke. If you look for it you will find it, if you don’t seem to be able to find it… call and ask someone at the district office. If that doesn’t get you anywhere, call me Moonfist—Myke Colbert 250-661-2226.

A happy horse is afraid of the shadow of a whip. May the shadow of things be enough for all to not have to suffer needlessly.
