A recent blogger workshop included the assignment to create an avatar to represent my readers, my audience. My husband’s YouTube course instructor told him to “know his audience”. So I scrolled through the list of my followers and well, creating one avatar to represent all of you wouldn’t be possible. Different nations; different blogs represented… Continue reading To my readers
In a previous post, Stepping off the Cliff, I shared of the big vocational change that happened when my husband took paternity leave. Today Forest released his first YouTube video from Forest Li Finance. It has been almost two years since he left a secure white collar profession and began to forge a new entrepreneurial… Continue reading Family business part 2.
I have had the dream to write a book for a while and now is the time to put the pedal to the metal! I am working on a book of poems about motherhood. Many of the poems are taken for blog posts and revamped. Others are originals. Writing and editing them has been a… Continue reading Poetry book coming!
I stumbled upon this app while looking for chords. When the recording option was presented I hesitated. In 2017 I started a YouTube channel and stressed myself out with too many takes and, in my opinion at the time, not enough likes or follows. I have an undying dream of being a music performer. I… Continue reading Music again
I have had the same dream for about a decade. I am back in highschool and I either can’t find my math class or I arrive at the very end. It is near the end of the year, I haven’t done any of my lessons and the final exam is looming. I wake up with… Continue reading From Nightmare to hobby

This is one reason why I didn’t have any of my friends as… Continue reading My best friend
I picked them up and threw them away not knowing the treasures they held. Vitamins A,B,C,E,K and if I eat them in the sun... well, there’s D! Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium too. Goodness for me and you! Fry the flowers in batter for a special sweet snack or blend the greens and roots in a smoothie.… Continue reading Ode to the dandelions
Veterinarian was my first answer. I was 9 years old and had 9 pets. I realized I wasn’t that great at keeping them alive though when my guinea pigs died of sunstroke, one of my budgies got eaten by my cat and another one flew away with her boyfriend. Maybe they found a nice home… Continue reading When I grow up I want to be a…
Push, swipe Power off. 6 days of unplugged....6 days of rest? Staring at the black screen, itching to go back. Wondering about my friends and the world’s latest news. The silence is startling. I can hear myself think. I’m the only voice in the room. (Joined only by toddler songs and expressions of joy that… Continue reading Unplugged
Oceans, rivers, lakes, forest, grassland, flora, fauna beyond comprehension, fresh air... I am glad to live on this giant rock in the Northern Hemisphere. Canada Day has always been a day of joy for me. Fireworks, face paint, games, parties. A day of celebrating the place where I live. A day of singing “My home… Continue reading This beautiful place.
