Timely Messages

After five years of writing a blog and filling countless journals, I’ve discovered I am most passionate about unlocking timely messages that encourage, challenge and change my perspective. I’m talking about moments of clarity and self-discovery. This is what I love writing about! When I happen upon a timely message like spotting light poking through … Continue reading Timely Messages

Certainty

Worry, like a string of balloons tethered to your hands carries you far from reality.  Detached from the earth below, you spend endless hours constructing scenarios that address every “What if?” You devise multiple plans - solidifying certainty and safety at all costs. Every situation controlled. Every outcome calculated. Every question answered. Nothing is unpredictable and … Continue reading Certainty

We are Human

Tragedy swarms humanity.  Collectively, we fight back.    We stay home, share wealth, goods and cheer. We celebrate sacrifice and unify our will to survive. We cry. We question. We stay in bed longer than usual. We dance. We panic. We run. We grieve.    We are human - fit to live, love and overcome.  … Continue reading We are Human

Unveiling

I’ve longed for sunshine like the arrival of vacation after months of drudgery.  My unrelenting desire is consuming.  I beg for her return, that she would pierce the grey gloomy skies with the sharpest of knives. Piercing and peeling back the heavy winter sky. Like an avalanche delivering streams of liquid gold, she wakes up … Continue reading Unveiling

The seal broke releasing the past.  Its sentence was up and like an uninvited haunting it was making its arrival known.  Wanting to hide in fear it chased me down.  Like a child I hid under my blanket pretending that if I couldn’t see her, she couldn’t see me.  My protective force was faulty.  I … Continue reading She is Past

Kindness Crash

My friend laid under her blankets for the rest of the day, not wanting to engage in any sort of conversation. She was completely exhausted from an incident that had occurred earlier that morning.  I was compassionately curious to know what happened to have caused her such distress and exhaustion. A few days after New … Continue reading Kindness Crash

…but a moment

My backyard, small but perfect - a place to lounge mid-afternoon during the summer months. Two new turquoise-blue muskoka chairs make backyard lounging perfect. Everyday I would sit with my bare feet touching the grass or crosslegged on the chair studying, reflecting and writing. My studies were often interrupted by my curious little dog playfully … Continue reading …but a moment

Filling Space

Mulling over the drink menu at one of our favourite local restaurants, four of us sat on bar stools catching up about last week’s birthday celebration. It was a fun event that brought together a large crowd of new and old neighbours, friends from work and old band mates, as well as family. Being an … Continue reading Filling Space

Beneath Waters

I buried her beneath waters. A buoyant sail once purposed for adventure, shipwrecked. Drowned by currents of ‘acceptable norms’  She could no longer stay afloat. She sank. Her beauty. Her purpose. Her destiny. Gone. She was ‘put in her place’ on the ocean floor. A vessel repurposed for others.  A hidden home for sea life … Continue reading Beneath Waters
