We have to exercise discretion in our interaction with people on a daily basis.  Don’t say anything to someone that you would not like another person saying to you.  Be compassionate and remember that we all make mistakes.  Don’t ask for forgiveness when your actions were premeditated.  Think before you act. We have to be […]

Frederiction New Brunswick

Travelling by train is the most scenic way to get to New Brunswick, Canada from any Canadian City. I prefer to travel first class, there is priority boarding when embarking. You can sit on the deck and read or watch people, birds or animals as the train rolls along. I fell in love with Frederiction […]

What matters

Life evolves.  There is life and there is death.  With birth comes excitement, hopefulness, gratefulness and expectantancy.   Life is so full of promise we tell ourselves.  We forget all our disappointments and look forward to a wonderful future.  We make plans and we stand back and look at the life we created, the life […]

Life as we know it

I just want to share my prospective on life.  To me life is a journey into the unknown, and to traverse its highways we have to find time for meditation and thanksgiving.   I believe we are all here to fulfill a divine purpose but we have to figure out what our purpose is.  There […]

Mirroring Self

One of my favourite songs is “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson.  It puts me back in the decision making seat.  It allows me to re-assess and to acknowledge that inspite of what is happening I have to look at myself and ask why and how did I find myself in the place I am. […]

What a day

I got up as usual at 6 am, no plans for the day.   I am going to take it easy, brew myself a pot of tea and sip ever so slowly so that I can enjoy the warmth and the sweet aroma of its scent. “Knock, knock”,  I jumped up and the tea spilled […]

Self worth

I know you won’t want to believe me but when I am stumped and don’t know my way out of a situation my go to remedy is the kitchen.   Cooking is all the healing I need.   Soups and stews, you name them,  are my favourite remedies. When my boyfriend decided to trade me in […]

Word count

She told me to expect him at 8, a date, but isn’t that a bit late. The door bell rang, I peeped through the hole in the door and who do I see, or rather what did I see:  a bouquet of roses tied with a ribbon attached to a note. I read the note […]

Coffee Date

If we were having coffee right now I would tell you that I miss having you here.   I am feeling refreshed and in a jolly mood and I know you would be happy for me.    We can go for walks in the park, and I know you would like that too.   We […]

Love Letter

I am writing you an open letter to remind you of how grateful I am to you.    Thanks for your patience and your love.  For waiting on me, cooking for me, helping me through the good times and the bad times.  For consoling me when you need to and for caressing, hugging and kissing […]
