The Numbers Game and Visits

I struggle with the exactness of numbers---that there is no room for error. Grey areas are few in the world of numbers but sometimes numbers remind me that they are a wonderful tool for measuring moments. The stats It was just one evening. Two friends, closing the gap on 3596 kilometers (or 38 hours) if... Continue Reading →

We Are Stardust

In 2012 I went on an interprovincial adventure with some pretty fabulous women. We stayed at a bed-and-breakfast where we slept in glammed-up sheep wagons. We toured the local terrain, a vineyard, a forest and a desert. Not to be done in by nightfall we went to a dark sky preserve in Cypress Hills Interprovincial... Continue Reading →

# 34

What kind of story would Munish tell? After the production of #34, at Regina's Globe Theatre, I stayed for the opening night party. I chatted with Munish, congratulating him on his success as the playwright and performer. He told me that when he started developing the idea for this story he was prompted by the...

A Same But Different Time

I'm sitting at my table listening to Ted Talks--- Like I used to years ago in my attic apartment of the old house I owned. I was parallel with the trees in the sloped top of the old character home. I lived in the romance of my cute little place. That was a truth. I... Continue Reading →

Blessings of Travel

Last night from the balcony of my bedroom in Thessaloniki, Greece, I felt a familiar calling from the long-ago times.

But besides knowing it, I don't consciously walk around thinking 'making a difference, making a difference, making a difference. However, once... Continue Reading →

Conversations on Memory

Sometimes dialogues hit just right. They teach. They compliment the moment and open doors that were shut. They can be something more than the basic how are you's and I'm fine's. Recently I had a dialogue with a friend that left me with a wistfulness I hadn't felt in a while. Maybe it was the... Continue Reading →

Viral Lessons

I'd like to apologize for lying. I said that I would only make one post about Covid-19 but this is my second post. Sorry. Actually, I think I'm going to throw my dear friend Barbara Bell under the proverbial bus. She came over for an impromptu visit. It's been 24 months since the initial pandemic... Continue Reading →

Reflections, 2021

*A little past the midpoint of January. So, before it's too late, if it's ever too late, here's a little reflection on the last 365 days. 2020. I don't even know. I don't even know. A shit show. A roller coaster. A tumultuous relationship where things were on again, off again. Codependent. A 12 step... Continue Reading →
