Learning to be O.K. when everyone else’s road map is different than mine.

… in that everyone has the right to choose their own path and that the many, varied and often highly inventive ways of getting from Point A to Point B are part of what makes the trip through this world so highly entertaining. Granted: I don’t always like the ways though which some other individuals choose to achieve their desired goals but I am willing to concede that I don’t see all ends … Continue reading

I like being the one who shapes my life.

I notice that there seems to be a lot of finger pointing going on in the news these days. Now don’t get me wrong … I agree that a lot of unpleasant, unfortunate and often downright nasty stuff is going on even as we speak … never mind what has already occurred. ..Like Eleanor Roosevelt … I think that “in the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves …” Continue reading

I’m taking time to smell the roses

Everybody is in such a rush these days. We’re in a rush to get to work and then we race to sit in rush hour traffic so that we can get back home. We hurry our kids out to multiple clubs, lessons and “fun time” and then zoom back home to put them to bed. We eat fast food, have drive through bank machines and want instant gratification. We carry around iPhones, Blackberries and Touchpads because we don’t dare be out of touch with work, friends or family. What ever happened to sitting down and talking? Continue reading

Watching the impossible become the inevitable!

… even in the darkest times I never felt like I was alone. I had the presence of old friends, new friends and amazing family and as an added bonus I was gifted with the Voice of Life whispering in my ear. Right from the beginning I knew that, although the future that I had previously envisioned had been radically altered; it wasn’t really gone … it had just been put on hold for awhile.

The Weaver weaves and my tapestry unfolds

It seems to me that life is pretty amazing. I never ceased to be awe-struck by the seemingly unending manifestations of beauty, grace and flow that the planet and the cosmos reflect back to me. I mean … after all … have you looked up into the night sky recently? That is a pretty impressive display of creation! It certainly puts my little life into perspective … a completely humbling experience all ‘round. Continue reading

I heard Happiness call my name.

Now I tend to be a very positive and consequently a pretty darn happy person. Inner Perky Polly, Sunshine Sue and I are constantly giving people cavities with our chipper outlook and our stream of upbeat chatter. What most people don’t realize is that this way of being is the outcome of a lot of years of i)… Continue reading

This little-old-cliff-jumper is learning to fly

I’m not sure how it happened but it turns out that, despite the fears that we picked up in life; my late son and I were pretty consistent cliff jumpers. We could regularly be found making up life on the fly, figuring out what our next step was going to be – whilst everyone else was analysing what their first step should be – and building wings to keep us gliding long enough to find a safe place to land.
