MARCH 2020: Understanding More about Money

FEBRUARY 2020: Love is the Answer?

Really? What was the question? I have a hunch that the question was how do we live in a world where each and every day the news reports such nastiness. Media captures images and reports stories that scare me! I'm on a diet, now. I restrict my mainstream...

JANUARY 2020: We finally have 2020 Vision…

Of our own lives, anyway! The beginning of a new decade offers the chance to look back - at the decade or the past 365 days and reflect on what worked for us and what didn't. I've had a total life makeover in this past decade and took an hour to review...

JULY 2019: We’re Human Beings, not Human Doings…

Now that we've celebrated being Canadian on July 1st, lets continue honouring  ourselves and each other? We can always use a reminder to celebrate! I lost my biggest fan when my Dad died in 2016. When he was over 80, he told me "You're the only child who...
