Farewell to Edna ...

Edna Tips has decided to take a trip south and she is not sure she will return to Canada. While I am sad to see her go, I am honoured that together we published more than 110 stories since launching in July 2020.


Please join me in thanking Edna for all her contributions and wishing her a fond farewell as she heads south for a happy and restful sun holiday!

Looking forward, I have decided to take a break to consider the future of Thursdays with Anne.


Earlier this week, a colleague encouraged me to use my own voice; she said she wanted, “More of Anne” than she felt she was getting through Edna.


I would welcome your feedback too.


There are three areas where I would appreciate your perspective dear readers:

  1. Would you prefer that I look for another partner like Edna or would you prefer that I carry on alone?

  2. Thursdays with Anne was fashioned after “Tuesdays with Morrie” where the author, Mitch Album, interviewed Morrie Schwartz every Tuesday. If I continue on alone, is the title Thursdays with Anne appropriate or would you suggest something else?

  3. Would you prefer to continue with written stories or is it time to switch to podcasts?

I will gratefully receive your candid feedback!


Please comment below, email: anne@anneminer.com or call me at 416-804-2023.


Thank you so very much! I look forward to hearing from you!


Watch for the next chapter early in December.

Thank you so very much Anne for including me in your journey with Edna. I have enjoyed all of your postings and it is so nice to get to know you even more deeply after so many years apart. I am a 'reader' type person, real books so I can smell the ink and feel the paper, I've never listened to a pod cast and wouldn't know how to. A result of what I have lived through for so many years, I just got my first cell phone last year when the shelter insisted. So I'm voting keep on writing, you're so insightful, but not to the detrement of your health. Please take a well deserved break. Keep In Touch.…

Anne, please thank Edna for all the stories that she shared with us in the last 2 years. It has been wonderful to read them every Thursday.


All things being equal I hope you consider to keep going in a new format. You have a great voice and amazing experiences. Several of the stories are inspiring and I share them with my daugther as she is becoming of age. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels that they have learned from your voice and that have enjoyed the journey so far.


About your questions, I personally agree with your colleague about "hearing more from Anne", and I believe the title would still be appropriate going forward, unless y…

Anne... I like the style you have been using. It's different. It's fun. I do wonder about podcasting - seems like the method many are using to consume their content. And you do have a lovely voice. I agree with the note below that you should do what makes sense for you right now. Take good care!

Dear Anne, Thank you for all the wonderful stories and adventures that you have shared with us all! I know this is a trying time for you as you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you will consider continuing with your articles as I enjoy them so very much! Only you can decide if you wish to continue. With all the issues that you have in your life right now, I will truly understand if you do not continue your articles. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Please give a hug to Olev as I think of him and keep him in my prayers. Miss seeing you both and understand all the worries …
