Listen to YOUR Voice: The ‘End’ of Blogging
Ever since the shooting on 12
June 2016 at Pulse, a nightclub in Orlando, Florida, I’ve had difficulty penning
a blog post. I’ve sat down to write one many times, but I didn’t know what to
say. Actually, I knew what I wanted to say. I wasn’t sure I had the ...

Why I'm Consciously Unplugging from Social Media
The secret is out. Actually, it's not a
secret. We've all seen the impact the internet, and consequently
social media, has had on almost every aspect of our lives. Most
people have embraced social media while others have refused to go
near it. I was, for th...

Warning: “Doing It All” Can Kill
Maybe not kill ,
but it can definitely maim the spirit, bring you down. That's
what happened to me. I just didn't know it

in a way that shook me to the core. Everything I...

A Soft Reset
I’m not the biggest TV
enthusiast. When I was twenty-one and living in France, I didn’t watch TV for
the entire year (1994-1995) that I was there. That changed how I saw
television, changed how I lived . And

The Power of Doubt
The calendar may say it’s March,
but here in Toronto it feels like spring. There are patches of snow on the

Be in the Now
2016 started with a bang. The day after I landed back in Toronto from Beijing, I was in extreme pain. A Sunday, and I sat quietly on the sofa watching TV with my partner while the whole left side of my face throbbed. By suppertime, I couldn’t take the pain ...

Be Daring! Be Bold!
Happy New Year! My hope for 2016 is that it will be, one more time , a  Year of Selfishness *  (much like it was for 2015) .
I will acknowledge what it is that I want to achieve and go after it. I will be
courageous, daring, bold. I will, selfishly ,
put my...
