Springing forward

Are we there yet?

Here we are with crazy weather for the first official day of spring. Stormy drifting snow with icy road conditions made for a tense and treacherous drive to the airport. Never before have I been so grateful and excited to leave behind a Canadian winter. So here we are: my dream has finally arrived, after […]

Excess Baggage

MAC electronics

Now that my husband and I have made firm plans on a trip to Spain (we leave in under a week!), I am debating what to travel with on our 9 week trek to Europe. I’m trying to travel as light as possible, which is quite challenging when trying to factor in such electronics as […]

Fear, the Biggest Hurdle

They say that deciding to make a major change in ones life, following through and taking that initial first step, is the biggest hurdle to accomplishing goals and approaching transformation head on (whomever ‘they’ are). At this juncture in my journey, I can honestly say that indeed yes, ‘they’ are correct! A statement that I […]

Things You Do Not See From Driving The Interstate – Indiana

Precious times

Leaving our amazing and dear friend Barbie June in Illinois (after a few days of hanging just west of Chicago with her), we made our way eastward towards Jackson Center Ohio, home of the Airstream birthplace. Of course, deciding to take the road less travelled offered up many cool opportunities to reflect, sightsee and enjoy […]

Across the Rockies

utah red rock

Driving across country is always an amazing journey, with each crossing bearing a different picture of a country’s grandeur, whether that be through Canada, the US or beyond. I’m thinking that this will be my 6th traverse (or thereabouts) by vehicle across North America? I’ve lost track to date :).

The drive to here […]

I Dream of Cirque

The culmination of our tour in Las Vegas was the gift to each other for tickets to see the world-reknowned Cirque du Soleil show “O“, in permanent residence at the Bellagio Hotel since October 1998 (grossing over a billion dollars since it began!). I concur with the Los Angeles Times synopsis: “‘O’ is liquid magic […]

A Quick Retreat from Winter

Christmas morning, and barely a sprinkling of snow. I suppose you could call it a white Christmas per se (here in the snowbelt area of Teeswater anyway; not-so-much in other areas around SW Ontario), but I’m thinking that there are a quite a few Canadian children who are disappointed by the barren dry grassy plains […]

One Week

What would you do if you discovered that you only had a limited time left on this planet, that you only had a day … a week … a month left to live. What would be the first choices, your first gut, heart-wrenching reactions? Would you flee in search of adventure, truth and answers? Would […]

The Journey to Vancouver

What a surreal day! I spent the morning in Toronto with our friend Anshu, trying to catch up on the sleep I didn’t get last night (as if that will happen — you can’t regain what is lost). I’m super excited about the next few days, and sleep wouldn’t come to me easily. So I […]

Revisiting Montreal in July 2011

We are so incredibly blessed. After leaving slaDE~s Mom’s late in the evening, we made our way to Montreal to our home for the next 5-6 days. A beautiful authentic man whom we meet on our last visit to Montreal (at both the Acro Yoga Sunday jam and the Yogaslackers slackline workshop) has gifted us […]
