Is There Any Privacy Left?

June 25, 2018

Is there any privacy left in the world? I’m beginning to wonder! Living in a small town with 3 traffic lights you tend not to think about big brother watching you. Now I know in all our major cities there are cameras on the traffic lights, banks, arena’s and public venues have cameras but there are so many more that one doesn’t […]

Experiencing Mindfulness

May 3, 2018

Experiencing mindfulness is not just about learning a technique or the flavour of the day. True mindfulness is being aware… being present in every moment of every day. There are people that teach mindfulness online, hold workshops, and/or write books about it. Then there are others that spend their whole lives searching, exploring and living […]

The Trees Were Calling

March 27, 2018

Today the trees were calling to me. After spending a few days deep in technical details my brain had started to hurt and I could see the trees waving their branches out the window. “Come and spend time with us,” they said. “I don’t have time” I replied… “I need to get this done“. Come they […]

After arriving in Arizona (you can read about that here) the next 2 days were a blur of travelling from El Paso to Corpus Christi, TX. We had spent a very restless night as we listened to all the traffic on Hwy 10 and were glad to get on the road the next morning. Wanting […]

Dungeness Crab – Dinner Fit For A Queen

February 16, 2018

On Valentines Day some women get chocolate or flowers but Rob surprised me with a dinner of Dungeness crab. Now… that doesn’t mean we went out for dinner, but he delivered six crabs in the form of “live” in a bucket. Rob is friendly with the people that run the crab catching business in Sooke and […]

They Paved Paradise And Put Up A Parking Lot

February 13, 2018

As I sat down to write this post I was trying to think of a title and then all of a sudden the words to a song by Joni Mitchell just popped into my head – “They paved paradise and put up a parking lot” from the song “Yellow Taxi“. It started out to be […]

Life In The Fast Lane

February 8, 2018

Now I don’t normally do life in the fast lane, but yesterday turned out to be one of those days. There was so much going on that I couldn’t keep track of things. I would start to do one thing and then another popped up that took priority over the previous chore and consequently nothing […]
