Thank you Nora Ephron

All my life I have loved to read. I have read a lot – for: university, work, pleasure, and simply information. Sometimes, I become obsessed, and read for hours, trying to learn everything that I can on a particular subject. In fact, I am a “hoarder” of information. I have almost 400 books and dozens of boxes of files in the closet to prove it. Continue reading Thank you Nora Ephron

An Excess of Clothing and COVID-19

How much is in your closet? Why are we addicted to “fast fashion”? How much do you really need? What should you do with the excess that you no longer need or want? All of these questions were dancing around in my head as I contemplated a spring closet clean out during our COVID-19 lock-down.  I am certainly guilty – just like so many others – of having “too much”.

Garbage!

The sun glinted on its shiny surface as I walked on the lake-shore path this morning. It was a clear-plastic Starbucks-type cup sitting on the rocks. It was half-filled with a rose-coloured liquid, . Maybe an iced tea? But the problem was the drinker was nowhere to be seen. It was garbage – left behind. Last week, it was four Tim Horton coffee cups strewn across the parking lot. And a few days before it was an empty bottle from “spring water” left on the walking path. Continue reading Garbage!

Starting my Feng Shui Journey

I cleared a space at the dining room table to start my journey. I sat down with The Feng Shui Journal – A guided workbook to bring harmony into your Life (by Teresa Polanco). I made myself a cup of mint tea in my “angel” mug (as I know I will need all the extra help I can get). Continue reading Starting my Feng Shui Journey

My Feng Shui Year – 2016

I need to change my life and I plan to use Feng shui to do it…

I am so glad that you’ve decided to join me on the journey to find my new “Karma”. Anyone who knows me will tell you that it is likely to be a bumpy ride. You may even find it’s a roller coaster, rather than a speedy highway or a tranquil forest trail. I woke on January 1, 2016 and decided my life needs to be different.

Need for Change – The Answer is Within

…when we are ready to make a change in our lives. We need to listen to our own wisdom – rather than that of others. We will know when it is the right time to act. After all, we are the ones that must live with the consequences.

Recently while I was telling a friend about my solo backpacking trip to Ireland, she asked: “What advice do you have for a gal who is also making her way through this world? I have some changes and work to do on  myself, and as yet have not taken the steps that I need to.”

Firstly, I told her that  advice should be listened to – but not necessarily followed. Nonetheless, I am a person who always has advice to give. And what follows is my counsel…
