Green Grass in Concrete

April 27th, 2012
I’ve never met a single person who WANTS to see the earth desecrated by human greed. Indifference? Yes. Inaction? Yes! Complacency? Yes! Overwhelm? Definitely.

Letting Go, Moving on

February 29th, 2012
Whether you are scarred by love, jaded by religion or beaten by circumstance, there comes a time to say “Enough!” and move on. You aren’t serving yourself or changing anyone else by holding on to anger. Rights and wrongs are beside the point now. It’s time to let go, let the past be what it ... Continue Reading »

Claim Your Power

February 27th, 2012
Every now and again in an acceptance speech, magic happens and an actor connects the dots between their on screen role and real life issues.

Change and Habits

December 1st, 2011
We ALL have something(s) we want to change, whether it’s a destructive habit, an injustice or a ten dollar bill. We want to eliminate things that aren’t serving us or maybe even things that are making us miserable. We want to add much more of the things that make us feel alive and inspired. If ...

Fearing Halloween

October 27th, 2011
Without hesitation she replied quite simply “A picture frame”. Phew, I can do picture frame, “This will be a piece of cake” I say, “Oooh I want to be a piece of cake” her brother adds. Halloween is not one of my favourite holidays, for various reasons. It’s not just because it isn’t a part ... Continue Reading »

Surrender

October 25th, 2011
There is nothing I can do. But watch. My wanting it to change, my arguing with it, pleading for one more day, pointless. The leaves fall, the wind changes, the temperatures drop, the geese fly.

Yours and Mine.

What’s mine is not yours. For what’s mine is mine and yours is yours. Let’s just get that clear I say to the both of us, from mother to child Draw the line. Then follow it to where it begins and see who is holding marker in hand. Who drew it, walked it, and now ... Continue Reading »
There are some things in life you take for granted: Your children will outlive you. No matter how tough it gets, you won’t poison your spouse with arsenic-laced toothpaste. And if you have a best friend, you will attend her wedding. But life sometimes upsets our most basic assumptions. And although I haven’t resorted to ... Continue Reading »

The Worldwide Web

August 9th, 2011
My husband, children and I would like to take this opportunity to formally thank all my girlfriends (past present and future) for my mental health. In the past 20 years I have moved often; from towns, cities, countries, and hemispheres. After unpacking enough boxes to find clean underwear and a favourite toy or two, on ... Continue Reading »
