How I gave so little and got so much

How I gave so little and got so much

Conversations In A Soup Kitchen By Deborah Kimmett I was having one of those days. One of those days you have as a self-employed person where you wonder if the business will ever pick up. So I went into town, and there was my friend Maria on the outside patio of a popular restaurant. Maria […]

The summer drive gets my motor running

The summer drive gets my motor running

By Deborah Kimmett I love the summer drive. Fall drives are nice, going up north to watch the leaves turn, but if your timing is off by a week all you’ll see are dead leaves. The spring drive means nothing is open yet, and the winter drive? Well. I have never gotten up once in […]

Survive The Drought - Tips For Getting Through Dry Spells In Business

Survive The Drought – Tips For Getting Through Dry Spells In Business

Does it feel you are doing everything right? You ask for work, you go for interviews, you do the marketing; sometimes you work at something for months, even years, but it seems like nothing is ever going to take root? You feel like a failure; the opposite of blessed. It’s like the universe has hid […]

What I learned from three inkless pens and a beer bottle opener

What I learned from three inkless pens and a beer bottle opener

After father died, my mom gave me three of his pens and a beer bottle opener. The pens had no ink. And I don’t drink. My brother Kevin got his ski sweater; Vern received a set of his tools, the third brother still more tools, and someone got a leather jacket. But the family scribe […]

A comic walks into a sex club...

A comic walks into a sex club…

I was teaching a creative writing workshop recently and on the break, I asked one attendee what she did for a living, to which she replied, “I own a sex club.” Not an answer I was expecting. Especially from this woman. She looked like a librarian. Immediately, I put on my ‘ pseudo sincere’ face. […]

What Eileen taught me in the Soup Cupboard

What Eileen taught me in the Soup Cupboard

The soup cupboard at the mission, is filled with cans and cans of soup, and other non-perishable goods the public has donated during food drives. And even though it’s sorted on a regular basis, there are hundreds of cans of food that have expired. I ask Valerie if I can organize it. “Eileen, can help […]

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 […]
