It’s OK To Be “Just OK”…..

Recently, a friend of mine wrote about feeling stuck in “limbo”, as he is between major projects in his life. On one side of the coin, he’s proud of all the hard work he’s put in and all the successful things he’s created and the sense of joy and well-being he’s brought into the lives […]

Even Party Girls Get The Blues…..

“What’s hard is simple, What’s natural comes hard. Maybe you could show me How to let go, Lower my guard, Learn to be free; Maybe if you whistle, Whistle for me. ” —Stephen Sondheim, “Anyone Can Whistle” This is the first Christmas that I remember not feeling filled with joy, and thankful for the friends […]

A Life Less Ordinary: Day #2

I’m the kind of person that naturally gets bored and feels uninspired if I stay put for too long. I’m not sure why; it isn’t that I don’t have the capacity to be happy or content. Sometimes, I even value the feeling of safety and security that “home” offers me, and there’s nothing I’d rather […]

Not Quite Norman Rockwell….

For as far back as I can remember, Christmas has always been one of my favourite times of the year. Never mind that I’m a summer girl, and that snow, ice, and temperatures below 50 degrees turn me at least 3 even more drastically whiter shades of pale, cause me to catch colds three times […]
