I’ve been observing some disturbing things happening lately in the name of Feminism.     

  

It seems that the clean truth of the Me Too Movement has been hijacked by a dirty agenda.  

For some, it’s no longer about removing the oppressor’s boot from t...

There’s a song by the Black Keys that goes

something like this: 

  

"Oh, my next girl . . . won’t be anything like my ex-girl . . ."

  

And I'm here to say, 

“Don’t be so sure.”

  

Because I’ve been on this Ferris Wheel a couple (dozen) times myself.

And I can te...

I just got back into town after Officiating the wedding of my Nephew and his beautiful bride.

And I'll be honest. 


I still have goosebumps.

I first read about the Body Compass in Martha Beck's book, Finding Your Own North Star.

Last month, I introduced you to two of my favourite characters (created and illustrated by Nick Seluk of The Awkward Yeti)  

If you read that blog, then you know that they represent two halves of the same brain.  

If you didn't read the blog, then buc...

When one of my clients introduced me to the Awkward Yeti's newest spin-off—HEART and BRAIN—I fell in love.  

  

Hard.

  

There's something empathetic about the way Nick Seluk captures this mismatched friendship that's 

truly endearing.

In my previous life as a Design Professional,

I worked closely with several Home Builders in my city.  

Back then, expansion was the name of the game, which meant I was always a part of something NEW.  

It felt great to be out on the construction site, wat...

In my thirties, I was plagued by a chronic anxiety that no amount of St. John’s Wort (or Clonazepam) could relieve.

   

On the outside, I was smiling.
