Reflecting On A Few Things: School Is Winter...

Feb 5, 2015 by

                              As of today, I have been back at school for a month. After an epic year off, I’m back at it. You’d think I’d have written a lot more about it by now, but the reality is that I’m keeping the details of this transition mostly to myself. As I get older, sharing less is becoming my comfort zone. I have a few theories as to why, and even those, I will keep to myself. I will just say this. School is winter. Last week, the chill got to me. It is much more damp here than the dry (though snowy) winters I get in Winnipeg. With the whipping wind, and the bit of moisture in the cold air, I...

All The Liebe

Jan 14, 2015 by

Wow! If I’ve done my math correctly (and we should never trust my mental math), this is the third time I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Blog Award. Last year, I was nominated twice and answered 22 questions in one go, and this year, Kristen from A Gypsy Breeze put me in her list of nominees. I’m going to break the rules here and not nominate anyone or come up with my own questions (only because I’ve done these relay type posts a number of times) but I will answer the questions! Just a little gratuitous rambling. Here are the 11 questions. 1. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? Lord have mercy on us all right now. I’ve lived in Canada (Winnipeg and Waterloo), and I’ve lived in...

How do you cope with the lulls? _____________________________________________________________________________________ Please like my Facebook page, and don’t forget to follow me on twitter and Instagram...

Again And Again And Again

Nov 29, 2014 by

I was actually nominated twice(!) to participate in this blogger contest relay, once by my friend Rika (Cubicle Throwdown) and once by the lovely Shing (The Culture Map). These are two blogs that I LOVE, and the ladies behind the content are equally charming and magnetic, so to be nominated by them is an honour! The gist is that I am to write about 5 places I would love to return to as part of – Top Destinations to Go There contest. I then tag 5 bloggers to carry on the race to the finish line. The prize is an iPhone 6, and since my phone is just about tapped in all regards, this would be a good one to win. It’s perfectly wonderful to fall so in love with a place to want to visit again...

The Indian Curse? *Part Three*

Nov 23, 2014 by

It has been several weeks since I first published this story, and not 10 hours later, took it down. It has been waiting in my draft folder since. I unfortunately crossed a line when I originally published, and that was never my intention. It is never my intention to cause hurt with my writing, although I understand that this can sometimes happen. Whenever I share something it is with the idea that I might, in some way, help just one other person… be it with encouragement on traveling somewhere like India or Mongolia or by dabbling in alternative forms of healing and being. In this post, you will read about a cleansing ritual. When I wrote this, I forgot that I wasn’t supposed to share this intimate detail. When I hit publish, this was one of my...
