Just back from an amazing, life-and-practice affirming few days on Lethbridge at IAST 2018. More on that later, when I aim more grounded and in a better space. Being immersed in such a creative and positive environment made the return to ‘the news of the day’ perhaps more jarring & disheartening, I don’t know. What… Read More
I am not usually one to share ‘inspirational’ talks or pithy quotes. To be honest, most of that kind of thing leaves me flat – sorry if that seems cynical or jaded, but there’s a tendency toward the superficial ‘instafix’ in this culture that is served by this material. However – I have also been… Read More
Came across this first thing this morning. I have always been fascinated/obsessed/drawn to/entranced by thunderstorms – this time lapse work from Mike Olbinski is gorgeous. Will have to wait several months to get even close to a real thunderstorm, so I will just have to take in Mike’s work in the mean time. Thanks… Read More

Wound up in the course of my day’s work wandering through the interwebs, and came across this: It made me quite pleased that I allowed myself a little digression, a little roam through unintended places. Finding unexpected things can be pleasant. Hope you enjoy it too.
If anyone is curious about the list of words I included or would like a PDF of this, feel free to contact me.
I’ve been so immersed in work lately, that it’s good to have a reminder that it is indeed SPRING … The simple exuberance of those first bright green buds on the trees, the enthusiastic (and sometimes frantic) birdsong from the bushes … makes me want to be outside much, much more than I am currently… Read More
I’ve been doing some travelling recently, in and out of other parts of the country – and in and out of winter (and spring) along with the shift in landscape and time zones. But wherever I’ve gone, there’s been ice, in all it’s beautiful, slippery, dangerous glory. Slick sidewalks, crusted roads, feather-frosted puddles and windows,… Read More
