Venus Arrived Right On Cue!

Tonight was the night whereby Venus transited the Sun. And although it's considered by many to be a phenomenon, I don't ever think in those terms... I believe there's always a bigger picture being unveiled to us, if we simply are of the mind and heart to pay attention. Venus' transit of the Sun is [...]

Is it JUNOfest or Route 66?

Ottawa, ON. - Perhaps I should write about Route 66 and how the mystery of the energy vortices on that stretch of highway created a synergy that produced the serendipitous moment of celebration that occurred in Ottawa, Canada for the 41st JUNO Awards Weekend celebrations.

Her Unfolding Journey

I often remind myself of the words of feminist philosopher and Havard professor, Laurel Ulrich, 'well behaved women seldom make history.'

They are aware that my intent in communicating, facilitating workshops, public speaking, etc... is to inspire intelligent conversation, to stimulate self-reflection, and to open the lid on outmoded and limited beliefs and perspectives pervasive in our personal lives and culture. To stir [...]

At 49 years of age, I've pondered these questions over the last 20 years of my adult life. Various jobs, multiple careers and creative [...]
