What Are Your Beliefs About Time?

I’m in the middle of an experiment with time – an experiment with my time.
You see, two days ago, I literally looked up (at my monitor, that is, which was displaying my Basecamp calendar, where I keep track of my deadlines) and realized I was going to be knee deep in work for the next [...]

The Next Chapter: Secret #1 – Acknowledging Your Creative Self

I’m very excited to be starting off my blogging year as part of The Next Chapter blogging book club.

Shoot for the Moon

Confession: I haven’t even taken a look at any of those 700+ pictures from Disney yet. So recording those memories for prosperity here isn’t quite doable at the moment. But soon, I’m promising myself.

Finding Grace … Or, Opening My Eyes to Grace

This evening’s been one of those evenings where I’m finding grace everywhere. It’s funny how one doesn’t necessarily even get a hint of all of this wonder that’s to come. But grace did come, from all around me:
1. The beauty of the rain, drizzling down unusually, reminding me of Vancouver. Not [...]

Inspired

It feels like Friday to me. Well, maybe not Friday – more like “the end of the week”, whatever flavor that is. And most of all, I am feeling inspired and moved and very much in alignment.
This week, I have come full circle. Unexpectedly, but then again, I started off the week with the decision [...]
