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 […]

Laugh and Learn webinar - one hour can change everything

Laugh and Learn webinar – one hour can change everything

I woke up this morning, and in my head I was arguing with a former therapist. Not my therapist. One my friend had gone to see 20 years ago. I still remember the stupid thing he said, “Some people use humour to deflect their true feelings.” Well I think therapists deflect their lives away by […]

What do mental health and getting the car tuned up have in common?

What do mental health and getting the car tuned up have in common?

Last night, I was speaking to FCMHAS (Frontenac Mental Health and Addiction Service). They were celebrating their 40th anniversary as an organization as part of the national “Someone You Know” campaign. I was the featured speaker who was taking a light look at mental health issues while sharing about my own depression I experienced a […]

Put on Your Big Girl Panties and Do it!!

Put on Your Big Girl Panties and Do it!!

Last week I was in Thunder Bay, speaking for a great group, called OPBA. In my free time I walked along Lake Superior looking out at the island called the Sleeping Giant.  Looking at that vast body of water I could feel my mind settle. Right, now I have a lot of ideas out there […]

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 […]
