Project 30 - Feb 29

I make it off the sofa for the first time in days! Glorious fresh air!

Project 30 - Feb 28

Still sick. But, some kindness brightens the day! Our neighbours (my heroes) brought me some homemade chicken vegetable soup and bread. They also arranged for their plow guy to come and clear our driveway, after it had been snowing all day and night. I remember that life is…

Project 30 - Feb 27

Not long into Sunday after seeing the kitties, I started to come down ill with a bad cold/flu. I basically spent the rest of my time since then huddled down on the sofa. This photo was taken accidentally while sneezing, but was quite representative of my last two days, so I kept…

Project 30 - Feb 26

What better way to spend Sunday mornings than hanging out with the kitties at my local SPCA! I get to play with them and make a fuss over them, as part of the cat socialization program that aims to help their wellbeing and adoptability.

Project 30 - Feb 25

A birthday treat: Going to a house concert to see the wonderful Ross Neilsen, a local musician and legend in the making. He recently made it to the semi-finals at the International Blues Challenge down in Memphis. (Where, I might add, that another local musician - Matt Andersen - won the solo award a few years ago. The only Canadian ever to do…

Project 30 - Feb 24

What was left of the yummy Baileys and Vodka birthday cake made for me by a dear friend. Starting my 30s with the kindness of others.

Project 30 - What It's All About

Recently, I turned the big 3-0. For some time before that, I wavered between wanting the milestone to slide under the radar completely unnoticed, and wanting to embrace it.

Then, I found myself speaking with a friend of mine who was doing this cool thing called Project 34. She had gotten the idea from a friend of hers. The basic concept was that on…

Dreams Sprinkled With Wiffledust?


     Almost every morning i awake from the strange world of a fantastic dream. I keep notebooks and pens right next to the bed within arm's reach, so i can write down the most interesting ones. Like most people, i imagine, if i don't get the details down within just a few moments of waking, my memory of the dream just fades away, piece by piece, until nothing is…

creative writing challenge: a love story!

I worked as a special education teacher.  I worked with mostly women, mostly married.  I had lots of friends, a wonderful family, but I had not met that 'special someone'--I was approaching 34 years old!  What to do??  How to meet someone??  I took a leap of faith and put an ad in a local paper in the 'singles' section.  I was nervous, but willing to take the chance!  Luckily, someone else was willing to take the chance, too.  He read my ad, held on to it, thought about it, then made the…

Penelope's End

Penelope's end

When I first started out in business I screwed up my first half dozen jobs, barely escaping with the

check. I was a few dollars away from totally broke or worse, a regular job, when I got my break. A

friend turned me on to an older lady with some big bucks. A relative of both the Duponts and the

Woods of Wawa, we're talking a coupla hundred million.  Mrs. Sands was stinkin rich but you

certainly wouldn't know it from the crappy little home she…

When It's Really Love

When it's really love

You find yourself willing to make sacrifices

Willing to do things you don't like to see them smile

Giving of yourself, even when it's hard to

Learning to pick your battles

Wanting your needs to be met

But also wanting to meet…

things people say

my mother on her dentures, " Owen, you don't understand, they're in there like a torpedoed ship,

half up and half down."
