Several days ago I spoke with friends Sharon and Jen about resolutions, making changes and the idea of choosing one word as a framework for our goals and aspirations for the coming year.There were many words that came to mind; peace, thoughtful, happy, strength, commitment. These are potent and valid, but somehow didn’t solidly…See More

Christmas Eve is like a mixed tape in our family.

Candlelight flickered and cast a warm glow inside the old log house. Dinner was long finished and the remnants tucked away for another day. The children were scrubbed clean, cozy in their pyjamas and eagerly awaiting the arrival of St. Nick. A candle burnt too low, stuttered and went out. “Maman, you have to find another candle.” The mother, prepared for this eventuality, placed a fresh candle to join the flickering lights of the others on the Christmas tree.A pine tree. With needles drying by…See More

A thousand lights

Like many of you I feel raw, tender, and I don’t know when that will change. Thinking of lost lives and dreams and all those fractured families in Connecticut has left me a bit broken inside.We haven’t spoken to our eight year old about the horror, but did with Bou. He’s 13 and there will be a lot of talk come Monday morning at school. D explained the magnitude of the loss, but it is incomprehensible to any mind let alone someone so young. He warned Bou that we can’t allow the actions of a sick…See More

An ode to happy stories

I don’t know what the numbers are, but there are 1000s of new books released every year. The ability to put pen to paper with focus and persistence is quite wonderful, particularly when all the pieces click. Books are the catalyst for conversations, bring joy, offer new viewpoints or fresh eyes on a situation and provide a needed escape to different worlds. And it is a human necessity. Take a look through history; fireside tales, mythology, art and music, these are present in every society…See More

They made me do it and I liked it.

There is nothing as supportive as a group of women.That’s an idea you don’t hear bandied about regularly. Usually the snarking, backstabbing, and mean girl behaviour gets the airtime. Yet women are the best at supporting one another, and the others (who are in the minority) get attention simply because they snarl loudest.When I began running it was women who were quick with words of advice and pompoms out ready to cheer. Last year I blindly and clumsily launched myself into the online writing…See More

Why I should have been a CSIS agent.

Today’s experiment:Spend a few hours working in a coffee shop.Conclusion:I am incapable of turning off my inner spy.Some clarification…it didn’t really go too badly.I finished the translation project I was working on. Once that was out of the way – and half way through a triple shot latte, but before the caffeine jitters set in – I began the daily commitment to the NaNoWriMo challenge of pulling 1700 words out…See More
