As I reflect on this last year, I am filled with gratitude for the people in my life. My world looks completely differently than it did a few years ago. My family has grown and expanded. I have no more dependent children. My business is being done remotely or in a shared work space when […]

Christmas has never been my favourite time of year and that is true for as far back as I can remember. It’s not that I don’t like spending time with family or friends. It’s not that I don’t like giving gifts. At one point I would have said that I didn’t like receiving gifts but […]

It is Solstice time again!  How many times have I written about the Solstice? The absolute moment of greatest expansion between yin and yang energies and how much I love this time of year. This year is different. It feels different for me and it’s difficult to put my finger on it. This will be […]

I love days when we celebrate others! In an ideal world we would be given the opportunity to celebrate someone and / or be celebrated by someone every day.  Imagine how it would feel walking on this earth feeling acknowledged and the freedom to acknowledge others.  If I wasn’t so caught in my own thoughts, […]

My favourite day of the year arrives at 4:34 p.m. Mountain Time. We call it Summer Solstice and today we celebrate with the beautiful Strawberry Full Moon blessing this day! I’ve written about the shift that happens in these energies many times. Today I want to focus my attention on the shift between all energies […]

It’s not by accident that after a delayed occupancy on my condo, the date of occupancy actually lines up with the eve of the December New Moon.  New Beginnings! Life is starting to settle down. At least that’s what I keep telling myself but the truth is, I know that although I am establishing some […]

Happy Equinox! What an exciting time of year! The equinox marks the time in the year where everything is most equal or closely in balance. The yin and yang energies are at a point of intersection in the spring and again in the fall.  Yesterday or today, you may have noticed an equal amount of […]

Today marks the 2nd year anniversary of the first major surgery. What a ride it has been. Yesterday marked the first day of the rest of my new life with David.  Beginnings and endings. You can’t have one without the other. Today I celebrate the functioning of my body in a different way than I […]

What a journey this life has been and one of the hardest things I’ve had to learn was how to say YES.  Such a simple word and yet it’s not very practiced.  I watched myself with my 1 year old grandson today and how many times I was inclined to tell him NO, not to […]
