My ride on the Other Bus in Nashville

My ride on the Other Bus in Nashville

I am on the other bus in Nashville – the bus that most of the working class ride. I take it because it cost $2.00 as opposed to $20. It’s the bus that tourists don’t use. With blonde hair, I stand out. The bus driver says in that lovely Southern drawl, “Ma’am the tour bus is […]

Humour has power to heal at the Hope For Today Cafe

Humour has power to heal at the Hope For Today Cafe

I am pretty excited to announce the opening of the virtual coffee shop, called The Hope For Today Cafe. No, it’s not a real space but exists online. I know  a lot of people today need some hope. On a good day we are bombarded with images all day long on how bad things are and […]

A Tribute to My Second Mother

A Tribute to My Second Mother

Marie Hopps was the first person I ever met who thought I was lovely, just because I existed. I called her my soft place to fall. I met her when she came to The Second City to see a show I was performing in. She should have been the one on stage that night: with […]

Why “Scooch” is never a good word for a woman

Why “Scooch” is never a good word for a woman

I was in need of a medical tune-up, so I called my doctor. The receptionist said he could fit me in late in the afternoon. I thought it would be a quick visit. I would be put up on the hoist and be back on the road in short order. When I got there, the […]

Make sure 'monkey mind' doesn’t drive you bananas!

Make sure ‘monkey mind’ doesn’t drive you bananas!

Creative folks have monkey mind. It’s just the way it is. But the secret is how to capture and harness those monkeys’ energies. Anyone that studies with me knows every day I sit down and write for ten minutes to download what I am thinking. I learned this from The Artists Way and have practiced […]

You know its a bad day, when you're apologizing to Spam.

You know its a bad day, when you’re apologizing to Spam.

I am plugged in. But this takes the cake. This morning I got an email from a guy in U.K asking me to come and speak at an event. I knew it was Spam, the way the English was phrased. “we are pleased you have English in your web page.” And I knew I shouldn’t respond. […]

Do you Need a Motivational Mama (or Papa)

Do you Need a Motivational Mama (or Papa)

We all need someone who knows what to say to keep us motivated. Someone who will be kind when kindness is required and honest when we need a slap on the hind end. ( I say “slap” because “kicking me in the butt” never turns me on.) For 30 years, I have always had a […]

Does the road of doubt get you coming and going?

Does the road of doubt get you coming and going?

From a very young age, I have written and performed stories. When I got out of my parent’s basement, I actually had people pay me to do what I loved. I wrote comedy sketches, TV scripts, and then, in 1989, a big play about the premature birth of my daughter — Miracle Mother. I say […]

Are you flying around like a fart in a windstorm?

Are you flying around like a fart in a windstorm?

“Her mouth moves like whippoorwill’s backside in a hurricane.”“He’s in a speed wobble.” My dad’s favourite expressions always seemed to involve body parts south of the waist. These expressions always showed up in his vernacular when he saw people who were flustered, panicked or busy, busy, busy. Often today we are no longer fine. We […]

Do you avoid being Creative?

Do you avoid being Creative?

So many people move to the country, so they can have time to create. But then they fill up their calendars with commitments, and those painting and writing projects get left undone. Determined they create lists and the lists get messed up by kids who want them to baby sit.  Or they didn’t have kids. […]
