A surprising way to start the year, a secret, and a book

    Despite my usual steadfast dedication to an early start to a productive first day of the year,  I started 2017 by sleeping until noon. And no, I did not tie one on the night before. I don't have any grandiose plans for doing things differently in 2017, but maybe this is...

Year end post - writing like no one will read it

It's year end post time - be witty, be deep, list all the highlights and do it all genuinely. Sigh. That's too much for me. I started blogging in 2002. It was a fresh approach to marketing yourself and I committed, well, truthfully I kind of kicked-ass.  It was how we shared photos in the...

Filling myself back up

Selah and I have been heading to Vancouver almost weekly for an appointment and sometimes, by the time we get to the ferry home, we are a little rough around our sensitive edges. Yesterday, we pulled up early. With her being now 12 years old, I can leave her in the car, (as she is on crutches,) and...

2011, I am not ready to say goodbye

2012 is coming, But first, let's kiss 2011 goodbye. 2011 took all that I had to offer, and put it to good use. You tested my strength, pushed my creativity, challenged my assumptions and reminded me about the importance of intuition.  It feels hard to see this year go, it meant so much to...

It's been awhile - my life

It's been awhile since I checked in and shared what is happening in our world. October was a fabulous month. Typically, it is a busy one for our family, we have two birthdays, thanksgiving, Halloween and it can be one of the busiest work months of the year for me. This year, we also threw in a trip...
