Good bye January

Here I am---first day of February. I made it. One month behind me. One month into a new year. One hopeful month in and as I look back (briefly, because I'm not heading that way) it feels like it was a fine month---and this one-day-at-a-time is how I will eventually put another whole year behind...

Hindsight is 2020

This is my last deliberation on the New Year. Then I'll move on. I think I speak for the collective when I say that we ready to put 2020 behind us! I posted a wrap-up video on my social media, just before the 31st of December. Sadly the video felt more like a trailer for... Continue Reading →

Resolutions, Intentions & Words

Resolutions The intention behind a resolution is to change something and mostly I think people want to change for the better. The New Year is a collective opportunity for making some kind of change.

We are welcoming another year with intention---whether we know it or not. Are we hopeful? Are we resigning? Are we happy?

Even walking to school is something that doesn't happen for the children like it did when we were young. We've created a... Continue Reading →

I recall childhood moments like they happened a month ago, so fresh in my brain with every detail and then sometimes last weekend feels... Continue Reading →

Thank You and Gratitude

Canadian Thanksgiving just happened. It's a day of thanks coupled with eating too much and hanging out with family and friends---and, for me, saying goodbye to summer---for now. She'll be back eventually. But for now I'm preparing for the cooler temperatures. What a year! We still have a few months left. The general populace doesn't... Continue Reading →

The Joy of Children

Mama, it's raining! One unmanageably hot day in Greece where the temperatures were around the 40 Celsius mark and the humidity almost 100% everything was sticky including my cousin and I. We sprawled on two small sofas trying not to have any part of our skin touch any other part because that would cause the... Continue Reading →

A Late Blog Post.

It's Sunday night. I'm working on this blog post NOW. Yeah, I know. It's late. By the time I post it it's going to be roughly three days late. I said I'd do my best to post Friday or Saturday---but not this time. Excuses Ideas: Not the issue. I had some ideas. I have an... Continue Reading →
