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. […]

When are people going to see how wonderful you are?

When are people going to see how wonderful you are?

For many years I sat around hoping that if I squeezed my butt cheeks really tight I would be discovered. Magically. No one worked harder than me, and studied harder than me. And took more classes, than me, as I wasn’t quite yet fixed. I wasn’t quite there yet. Which is great at 20 and […]

How a Pint-Sized Kid gave me the Scoop on Life

How a Pint-Sized Kid gave me the Scoop on Life

Mother Earth must be having a hot flash. It’s been stinking hot, hasn’t it? My air conditioner has been dripping sarcasm and my body parts have been sticking to each other like Post-it notes. One day last week, I was hot and cranky, and although there had been a lot of domestic nudity, I had […]

A Salty Tale of How I learned to Spice Up my Career

A Salty Tale of How I learned to Spice Up my Career

In the current economy, it takes a lot of effort to keep a small business afloat. I was funny but being a comedian wasn’t paying the bills, so I tried calling myself a humorist. But after years of winging it with unsteady work, I hired a marketing consultant to help me define my business. When […]

A slice of pie and my life on Sunday

My last book reading and FREE event for summer is in Yarker at the Waterfall Tea Room, this Sunday at 3 pm. Reading from new book, That Which doesn’t kill You. Have a laugh on me as I read from my new book of comedic essays of life after 50. Excerpts from Governor General nominated […]

Canada Day: Two Exchange Students, my family and a Jello Cake.

Canada Day: Two Exchange Students, my family and a Jello Cake.

I love Canada. I sometimes hum the National Anthem, mostly because if I sing it I get the get the words wrong. They changed two lines of it about thirty years ago and I still don’t know what they are.  I love Canada Day because its the one holiday where you just show up with […]

Mexico! 54 year old hips! And how you can make Norwegians laugh.

Because its warm it reminds me of Mexico. In March, I was in Isla Mujeres for International women’s day, attending the Conference called, We Move Forward.  Eighty amazing women from all over the globe began the three days of inspiration. Other than to be with fabulous women, I had no goals for this conference. I […]

A little funny about your financial insecurity.

  FINANCIAL INSECURITY   How you spend your money is how you spend your life. When I first heard this sentence a few years ago but I couldn’t make head ‘nor tail of it. It seemed like some spiritual axiom that might be good for Buddhists and yoga instructors.  The kind of people who give […]

Convocation, Daughters, and why you should never pose nude for Picasso.

To celebrate my daughter graduating university, we decided to go to the Picasso exhibit. Now usually a day that has a lot of expectation around it I get too worked up and likely ruin. Or at least annoy everybody with reminders and a lot of  nagging. But this was her day. She had a long […]
