I GOT YOU

Dec 12, 2021

I talk to you nearly every day. The problem is, I don't usually write down what I say. And because of that, you get very few emails from me these days. I want to change that.

Instagram gets a much bigger part of me. I post twice a day, every single day there. But I don't chat with Instagram the way I chat with you.

As I go about my day, I'm telling you what I hope are amusing tales of...

I LOOK FORWARD TO IT

Nov 08, 2021

I've had dishpan hands for 27 days now. Because 27 days ago my dishwasher broke. It gave a watercurdling sound (like bloodcurdling, but for appliances). Then it choked, sputtered, and stopped.

Naturally, I googled the make and model to try and source a DIY method of repair. I'm very much a do-it-yourself gal married to a do-it-yourself guy. But the sad news was there was nothing we...

WHEREFORE ART THOU, ROMEO?

Oct 19, 2021

It's only been one week since we buried Romeo under the majestic conifer tree in our backyard. The same tree we sprinkled my son's ashes under, 9 years ago. It felt like the right thing to do. From my perspective, they were both very similar - except for one being in human form and the other in feline form.

They both had the biggest hearts, the most soulful presence. They both felt...

I'M REALLY THANKFUL FOR THIS

Oct 09, 2021

Happy Thanksgiving. Do you have any plans this weekend? Are you looking forward to them? (That's not rhetorical; I'm really asking.)

I'm having dinner with my bubble friends.   (Thanks to COVID, from now on, they will always be known as my 'bubble friends'.) 

We'll have fantastic food and conversation. And maybe play a game. Something that will have us in...

IS THERE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE PROVERBIAL TUNNEL?

Sep 16, 2021

Fall feels like it began early this year. The weather suddenly changed. Thankfully. The desire to regroup, reorganize, recreate is suddenly strong. 

More than the sights and smells have changed, so knowing the astrological energetics and influence can give you a head’s up for the season ahead.

That’s why I had my seasonal conversation with my favourite karmic astrologer,...

I'LL PUT YOUR NAME DOWN TOO

Aug 29, 2021

This time of year makes me a little melancholy. It's the change of season. It's in the air.

When you were a kid, late August meant summer was coming to an end. The endless days of playing outside were going to stop. You'd have to go to bed early. YOU HAVE SCHOOL IN THE MORNING.

Later, I remember the first few weeks of high school each year were an extension of summer: we didn't get a...

DO NOT GOOGLE THAT PHRASE

Aug 06, 2021

I googled my childhood home address recently. I was having a nostalgic moment - they come and go more frequently these days.

And it suddenly popped into my head that I could just put my old home address into my browser and see what came up. So I did.

Walking down memory lane can be just as heart-pumping as gambling in Vegas; you never know how it's going to turn out. So I held my...

IT'S FUNNY AND TRUE

Jul 17, 2021

Have you seen these words on the back of a car near you? I have. The first time I read them, I laughed out loud. And smiled. Because they're funny. AND true. 

As a society, we've been focused on achievements, accomplishments, and bragging rights for a long time now, and it's very freeing to focus on the whole, rather than the perceived best. I've seen more than enough versions...

WE'RE LIVING IN RAW VULNERABLE TIMES

Jul 04, 2021

July is a tough month for me. It never used to be. But in July 2012, my son, Connor was killed when a distracted driver ran a red light while Connor was in the crosswalk.

It doesn't matter that it was 9 years ago this month. My body and mind feel it as though it was last week. I expect it always will.

When July approaches, I watch my body recoil and put up buffers, not wanting to be close...

OUR REALITIES HAVE CHANGED - SUMMER '21, FROM AN ASTROLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE

Jun 19, 2021

And just like that, it’s summer. And with vaccines  #1 and #2 rolling along, it feels like a completely different summer than last year, doesn’t it? 

Warm weather, slowing down, time with friends and family - whatever you look forward to in the summer -  knowing the astrological energetics and influence can give you a head’s up so you’re swimming *with*...
