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 […]

February 16, 2018

On Valentines Day some women get chocolate or flowers but Rob surprised me with a dinner of Dungeness crab.

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 […]

A Conscious Choice

February 3, 2018

Throughout our lives, we make millions of choices and decisions, but how many of us actually make a conscious choice for each of those decisions. From the time we are little our lives are dominated by choices. Some sources claim that people make 35,000 decisions a day. So, if we sleep 6 hours a day, that […]

I Heard The Raven Call

January 22, 2018

I heard the raven call today and although some say that it sounds hoarse and harsh, to me it is music in the making. He walks beside me and in his glistening coat of black, cocks his head to one side as if he hears what I cannot. To me… Ravens are the messenger A […]

Enough Is Enough!

December 2, 2017

After getting home from the desert and being all hot and warm we came back to the rain of the west coast. Being without rain all summer, these downpours are much needed to fill up reservoirs, top up the water levels and replenish the earth. But did it all have to come at once? It’s […]

The Things I Would Have Done If I Knew My Hard Drive Was Going To Fail

August 28, 2017

Hindsight is 20/20 especially when it comes to computer maintenance. That is why I’m writing this article to myself on ” The Things I Would Have Done If I Knew My Hard Drive Was Going To Fail” so next time my now-sight would be 20/20. I can’t blame my computer as much as I would […]
