2018 review

With 2018 passing, and time seemingly moving quicker and quicker for me as I age, I thought I’d take a moment to make a few notes while everything’s still relatively fresh in my mind… House… Late spring, Dan, Zig, and I reworked the back of the yard – relocating and adding plants – creating a […]

moving meditation

I’m ‘yaking… in the moment it’s all rhythmic breath and movement repetition washes cares and stress away   conscious thought is dissipated while the ‘I’ in me gets faded attuned to all 6 senses, I awake   and gently dip my paddle feel vibrations ‘long the handle play of currents in the water and the […]

self-deception – a comment on a video series @ actualized.org

Over the past couple of days I’ve watched Leo‘s (actualized.org) 3-part video series about ‘self-deception‘, and very much wish I had the time and patience to review and write each down for future reference. As I watched it, I frequently found myself recalling the years of frustration or despair I’ve suffered because I’ve allowed myself […]

checking my bucket list

Late in 2017, my BF put his bike into a shop to get some repairs and upgrades done, and it’s been collecting dust, since. Then, Friday, the weather was good enough that he took it for a ‘test’ drive to Thorold, and he found that something wasn’t ‘right’. So, he worked on it off and […]

Summer of 2017

You know, time’s been going by so fast that summer’s going to be gone before we know it, and that got me thinking that I really should write something about what we’ve been up to while its all still fresh in my memory. So… Kayaking: This year, the Niagara Region’s gotten a lot more rain […]

rocking the grey

Last year, I turned 50 and, like many a so-called ‘milestone’, it wasn’t as traumatic as expected. In fact, I had a great year! I got to snorkel in the Dominican Republic, take my grandkids to the beach, and party poolside like a rock star with my friends. By the end of the summer, though, […]

review 2016 year of the Monkey

Well, its time to say goodbye to the monkey, is it? Travel: went to Sosua, Dominican Republic in Feb., Byng Camp Grounds, Dunville, in the summer, but stayed within the Niagara Region, otherwise. Went to street festivals, bike runs, hiked, and kayaked a few ‘new’ creeks along the Niagara and Welland rivers. House: no big […]

boat full of hope

We’re kayaking up a thin snake of a stream, past cottages, silos, and swaths of golf greens. Carp splash and thrash and some ram our small boat, while we laugh and struggle to keep’er afloat. Then, we’re out in the boonies where few people tread and, like explorers, feel excitement and dread. But, what we […]

a kayaking peom

When I get stressed… just need a break I pick a pond… a stream… small lake off-load my kayak, drop it in and push off with a paddle fin then, its breathe-paddle-pause… and row again mindless movement works its ‘zen’ while Nature paints such wondrous scenes living art in blues and greens that, spellbound, I […]
