Me Too

Over the weekend my Facebook and Twitter feeds filled with women’s posts using the hashtag #MeToo or simply posting the two words “Me Too”. Some of my friends went on to write about assaults and rapes they’ve survived, others chose to let the words stand without explanation. A […]

On Being Brave

Well it’s all out there now! This week I have been blogging very publicly, not just on this site, but yesterday I also revealed a second site called Simply Fierce. The response has been positive so far. I’m getting lots of support from family, friends and other readers. […]

Why I Write

Sometimes when you’re in a creative rut it’s good to think about why you create in the first place and remind yourself why it means so much to you. The reality is that if you are a writer or an artist you probably aren’t driven to create because […]

Reboot Day Two

I am not going to lie, yesterday was very hard. I drank three glasses of juice, which was one more than the day before, still not the four that were in the plan from the book. I didn’t make any fresh juice at all, I had three glasses […]

Dawn Comes Early

I am literally up at the crack of dawn this morning, despite not getting to bed until nearly 1 am. I must truly be feeling better. This morning my mom and four of my aunts, her sisters, are heading west to visit my other aunt, their other sister, […]

Coming Home

My boyfriend is at some little airstrip waiting with about 200 other people to catch a plane to Edmonton. Late last night after I was asleep, they got word the job was shut down and it would be a couple of weeks before it started again. They could […]

Bless Me Readers …

… for I have sinned. It has been three long days since I have blogged … I went up home Thursday evening to spend the weekend and be the Maid of Honour in a friend’s wedding. It was a small church ceremony  with a little gathering at their […]
