Understanding

As the great Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hans said “UNDERSTANDING IS LOVE’S OTHER NAME. IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND YOU CANT LOVE.” Understanding others is “empathy”. In fact it is the top of the list when defining understanding. The skill or “Art” of understanding is something many people do not possess. People who are understanding of […]

Awe…time in the great outdoors!

I’ve just enjoyed the best summer I’ve had in 7 years. Why? Because I was able to spend approximately 3 days a week totally outdoors in the sun, warmth, green space of Bear Mountain golf courses, surrounded by thick forests, views of the ocean and mountains with plenty of deer to enjoy. It is so […]

It’s an uninvited constant in my life. Sometimes, in my head, I start to plan a great adventure and a split second into that […]

Imperfection

Oh my goodness…..this is a big topic. A topic I need to visit often to refresh and renew my attitude towards “imperfection”. I get so down with my Multiple Sclerosis and what it has taken away from me and what it is giving me in return. It has taken away my ability to even strive […]

ANOTHER NEW YEAR…PRAYING FOR NEW BEGINNINGS

OH MY GOODNESS……that’s all I can say about everything that has happened in this year, 2018. I, and many others, are praying for a new beginning with this coming new year. Our world is in decay….fast and furiously spiralling out of control.  There is so much hatred, racism, disrespect, anger, corruption and division in society […]

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you find yourself surrounded by family and/or friends this weekend as we count our blessings. We live in a crazy world at this time.  It’s comforting to know that we don’t have all the noise and chaos of our neighbours to the south.   The world is at a crossroad. […]
