What a gift this beautiful day with snow is. We did have too much for this part of Canada. Still, I loved walking/dancing in it, savoring the brightness and the ghostly forms of things unknown. Remembering skiing and the laughter of children playing. Walking in the white, being in a cloud.

Like any relationship it is a dance of intimacy. Love and hate. When I wa...

Here, on the Salish Sea on this morning, I am making a to-do list for the day. First of all, I am grateful for the smoke from the wildfires having cleared and it’s raining. Being in smoky skies for days is a bit like being trapped in a bubble, affecting your breathing and making you think into yourself.

I make a list pretty well every day and sometimes they ge...

This year is the anniversary of the great flood of 1948 in the small town where I lived. I was one of the children who lived on the opposite side of Main Street from the school. We were all loaded into the back of a truck to be taken across the raging waters. I only remembered this truck as being red. When I saw the video recently sent out by the historical soc...

Here we are on a trail near Elk Lake in Victoria. My walking friend suggested that we call our time "leaf therapy". This was a new concept to me, but on a beautiful fall day it reminded us of the need for Mindfulness.

Being in the Moment.

I was too talkative on this day but in retrospect I intend to enjoy the leaves a bit more until Winter arrives. I miss the f...

Doing dishes has been a time of gratitude and meditation for me for a long time. After my back surgery in 1972, I was so grateful to be able to stand without pain and I could do this, doing dishes. I am always Googling so I found this. The original is much longer but you can Google this yourself

Washing dishes the old way – yes, by hand – could be giving
you hea...

"I want to be under the sea." This tune kept running through my mind as I was at the Sidney Aquarium on World Oceans Day. Such a privilege to be living here even though I am not a water person. This year has had a bumpy start, but is turning around with some new ideas for creativity. Two of my younger (50's) relatives have recently told me that I am their role...

Here I am at the Casino. My truly least favourite place but I have a friend who sometimes uses this as his escape. So here I am in all this noisy negative energy using their wi-fi. I have never understood gambling but we have just returned from a sad funeral. So here I am. 2017 so far has not been positive. I am resetting a lot of priorities but one thing I do...

Inspiration comes from those who understand my art.

Those people could also be my friends.

Sometimes I find it hard to believe that

there is this connection, but this inspires

me to creativity on a higher scale.

I love hearing the story from the person

who has bought my art. I always ask

what they feel and why they are drawn

to a particular piece.

Thank you Cre...

I am so fortunate to have lived in a place where I found my soul when I was at the right age to do this. I learned the Way of the Tao, studying tai chi while at the same time learning about indigenous spirituality and the Way of the Red Road. Many of the tai chi poses have evolved from animism. Along the way

I also learned to consider myself a healer.

Then I offi...

You can often tell when an animal is listening by the way it turns its ears or its head. Too bad that we humans have almost lost this ability. It could indicate that we really are actively listening. Usually when someone is speaking we are only half-listening: the other half is planning what to say when it seems to be our turn. People talk over (ie louder) each...
