Full Moon Blessings

Here in Northern California, the sun sets later than it does back home. The glowing sunset over the ocean eases into finality around 6pm this time of year. A bonus to have an extra hour of daylight compared to our Toronto friends. Tonight the full moon shone brightly as the darkness settled over the valley. […]

Surrounded By Love, Remembering That I Am Not Alone

I found myself fully awake as slaDE made preparations to go to the dropzone to jump this weekend. I’m used to (sort of) my husband’s early morning departures during the week where he quietly readies himself for work at 5am. And if I’m ever-so-lucky, I can remember his sweet gentle kisses in the sleepy haze […]

composting with worms

Spring has sprung and I’m starting to think about gardening, birth, renewal. Tomorrow the world will celebrate Mother Earth in a collective vote of consciousness, with “Earth Hour”. Everyday I make an active choice to be conscious of my actions towards the Earth that nurtures and supports me. My husband and I actively compost, just […]

Voting for Hope: the day after

Come and gone. Like a puff of smoke in a magic act. Voila! And then silence, and waiting and anticipation, wondering, what next? The markets and the dollar rose sharply at the jubilation of a new administration, new hope. But what now? Waiting. Until Barack finds himself officially in office. Waiting for Bush not to […]

Adventures in cycling

Well here we are, a month after our wedding and that means 4 long weeks of my daily grind commute. To be honest (shhhh), it hasn’t been that bad. Probably has VERYTHING to do with my walk through the park every morning by the meandering gurgling Bow River. the sound of a vast trickle tickling […]

Airstream a-go-go

The reality of an impending marriage — that being my own — was finally sinking in. WoW! And the excitement growing within me was beyond anything I have ever experienced!

Stage two of rapid-fire adrenalin overload. Nonchalantly, on Tuesday evening, slaDE~ presented me with another possible option for an Airstream trailer. Over the past 2 […]

Solstice Blessings

With each change of the season, it is wonderful to reconnect with the fortunes and grace which fill my life and body. Thursday was the 20th anniversary of my brother Kenny’s death. A day of reverence for me, to the higher power which giveth light, darkness, life and death. A lesson to be acknowledged each […]

Voices from the Street 2008

Last night was an eye-opening experience. One that I will never forget (I pray that I will always remember). ‘Voices from the Street’ … the volunteer opportunity of my lifetime.

What started out as a noble gesture to reach out and provide an opportunity to serve, turned into a life-changing experience, recounted through the […]

How To Survive The Year

I just HAD to post this wonderful ‘Harold’s Planet‘ cartoon … after picking myself off the floor, laughing hysterically!

Just last week I clocked in my one year anniversary working for the Calgary Health Region. Prior to my full-time job here in Calgary, I’d been freelancing as a Web Designer / Videographer / […]

Gifting and Receiving

Love, love, love this excerpt! Kind of goes along with this weeks theme for my project366 ….

Giving and receiving …. it can be a vicious circle. What you give out comes right back to you. But it can also be a wonderful circle. What you give out comes right back to you. The […]
