Make memories together. It’s imoportant.

Good morning my most awesome circle of friends and family.. I would LOVE to join you here within this image for an intimate tete a tete.. I wonder what we would speak of.. Would we cry on each others shoulder in joy or sorrow in shared emotion?? Would we Laugh til we peed our panties ladies or till we hugged gents? Would we gaze at each other in amazement that we FINALLY met after all the words we have shared here–and discover that YES–we DO love and admire each other after all? Or would we just revel in our surroundings–breathless in it’s beauty.. So tell me.. What would we speak of, you and I, over coffee this morning.. Tell me..

The gifts of autumn….

The beauty of autumn… This time of golds and reds and soft edges.. of collected family and football and way too much food… of thankfulness and Charlie Brown’s Pumpkin. This time is a time of decision. A time of clarity and focused ascension. It is a time where that thing, intent.. that abstract description of an operation to be performed…. becomes necessary again. Stirred and shaken awake again.. For we MUST begin once again to perform for, unless we were born of silver spoons and the privilege of lazy entitlement… The fact is—Nobody ELSE is gonna do it for us, oui? Still, it has been a slice, this past season, has it not? Now that we are of an age, summer seemed to fly by as we allowed ourselves to play and be distracted by the sunshine and lollipops. Forgetting for whole weeks at a time that we must thrive..not just survive.. Don’t we all love those meager weeks of childhood irresponsibility that takes us all over and we forget that we must soon be adult and responsible once more? Aww–the beauty of autumn. We fight it but it is, alas… our rap of the knuckles. Our-“HEY, you. pay attention! […]

Fall-the season of readiness.

“Fallout”” Isn’t it true we find ourselves often waiting for happenstence when the month of orange arrives in our lives? That season when the undeniable urge to ready ourselves for-whatever- is undeniably there first and foremost upon awakening each shorter day?? Summertime exhausted us in outdoor play and bold attitudes.. Winter—oh, la, that time of struggle and sad remorse about who-knows-what. That dirty word comes across our minds unbidden quite often on those cold and wet autumn afternoons when we think to ourselves “At LEAST it’s not snow!” Yes, it is true that in quiet moments before daily life begins- in that gloomy-day coffee time when we are alone among many, we tend to reflect more. To question, to doubt. To begin the uphill battle of thriving over the harshness of the many hibernal days we northerners embrace..or abhor. finding it more and more difficult as more and more years add up. In sourcing trendy quotes and words and fascinating tidbits on ‘coping’ when darkness descends.. . it dawned on me that we need not seek the soulwords of others to express our emotions on October One each year… for we feel the anxiety and angst of overwinter knocking on […]

The beautiful surprises of FALL!

Looking forward to an AWESOME, AWESOME fall of 2017 full of promise and grand surprises…. I am thrilled to be participating in the world class Celtic Colours Festivals on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, among other things. What do YOU have planned that will bring colour to your soul? Will you join me in my resolve to seek out moments of joy and happiness this autumn of ’17? Together we will MAKE IT SO! For we DO have a choice. We can allow despair and negativity to control our daily. Or we can take charge and release the hidden inspiration that is within ALL of us–if we will only let it shine. Let it outwards-. And allow THAT to direct our lives, instead… Let grace, happiness and positivity reign supreme. Let’s make a choice., shall we? Onwards from my house to your house in sweet solidarity..
