Things we’ll do this month: July

I’ve lost track of the days. I keep thinking it’s Sunday. One tiny extra 24 hours tacked onto the weekend and it’s mayhem in my mind. We did some wandering yesterday, went for brunch, visited some loved ones, came home for dinner and watched the fireworks from our balcony. They …

The summer embrace

July 1st. Canada Day. The imprecise midway mark of the year. The time when we look forward the upcoming summer vibes and back at the goals we had at the start of the year. How’s your 2018 going? Mine has been mostly what I thought it would be. I made …

Luck, chance and other influences

Someone once lectured me on Twitter (would you be surprised if I told you it was a man who began his reply to me with “Well, actually…”? True story.) that there is no such thing as luck because we earn everything that comes to us. It was years ago, but …

Does practice make perfect?

I feel like I’ve been pretty clear about my intention to write more online. For the past couple of years, I’ve been writing, but not so much in this or other spaces where I use my name to claim my work. Most of my work has just been kept relatively …
