Somewhere in the Catskill Mountains

Here we are, in the first week of September and there are many changes taking place. The energy has been pretty intense for the past little while. Do you feel it?  I have always thought of September as a time for new beginnings. As the summer comes to an end, we have to start thinking about getting back into our regular routines. Vacation time is over, kids to go back …

BeComing StudioBe

Well, I’ve made the decision to officially move my practice over from Leaside Therapy Centre to StudioBe. I had thought that I would make the move slowly, over time, and go back and forth for a while but I realize that I have to get off the fence and just do it. The truth is that I’m sad to leave LTC and all the great people I work with there …

Everything Is Changing

Today, my youngest son came home from camp. I was so happy to see him and I realized that, for the first hour after I picked him up at the bus, I had been smiling so broadly that my cheeks began to hurt. Since my eldest son (who is now 24) was 7 or 8 years old I have sent at least one of my kids to camp every year. …

Reunion: Part Two

I’m sitting on the porch of my new property, which I am calling ‘StudioBe”. The new sofas for the upstairs offices have all been delivered and are being unpacked and set up, as we speak. The gardener is here to mow the lawn and, as I write, the smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of Snatam’s voice are deliciously tickling my senses. It feels right to be here. …

Reunion: Part One

Today, I sit in my bedroom, as I write. It is Thursday, not Tuesday, which is my regular writing day and I am, obviously, not at Rooster. I have two hours to get this week’s article written before I leave for my sailing class because, tomorrow, I think I’m driving up north again. Of course, I’m not complaining, however I do find it interesting because I’m pretty sure I have …

Riding The Waves Of The Soul

For the past few weeks, I’ve been riding a whirlwind of uplifting, forward-moving energy. I feel that there has been so much happening that it is hard to keep track of it all. At the same time, each experience has held such special meaning for me that I want to write it all down, just so I don’t miss out on the enjoyment and the feelings of appreciation that each of them are worthy of.

So, if you’ll indulge me, I want to share some of the more significantly wonderful things that have been going on for me during the past little while. 

As I mentioned last week, I started sailing classes at Queen’s City Yacht Club on Toronto Island, which is proving to be an incredible experience so far. I’m doing the class with a good friend and we’ve met some fun and interesting new people in the class, including our amazing sailing instructor, Jamie. Due to high winds on our sailing nights so far, we haven’t actually had much time on the water yet but I’m still enjoying every moment, learning how to rig and de-rig, tie knots, the various ways to approach the wind and, of course, the sailing terms. All of this while laughing and sharing beers with the group and enjoying the beautiful backdrop of the Toronto skyline at sunset.

What’s “In Love” Got To Do With It?

Well, it seems as though there are a quite a few people who will miss the “Seven Years Later” series. I had one reader, who I met in person last night, say “What are we going to do? We’ll be going through withdrawal!” That made me laugh out loud :) I know I’ve said this before and I’ll probably say it again and again but I’m just so grateful to …

Seven Years Later… Part Five

I wasn’t really sure where to go with the Seven Years Later series this week. To be honest, I don’t feel ready to write too much about what turned out to be the next important relationship in my life, particularly since it, too, ended relatively recently. However, what I will say about him is that we had an instant and strong soul connection, which took us both by surprise. We …

Me… Daring Greatly

Instead of continuing with my “Seven Years Later” series today, I want to address a theme I noticed this week, which really got me thinking and helped me to become just a little clearer about who I am and what I want. Over the weekend, I was given some feedback by two people in relation to what they read on my blog. In the first instance, the feedback was from …
