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
I have always been very hesitant to call anyone my best friend. I have an extreme childlike sense of fairness and if I were to give anyone that title I thought it might hurt another friend or pick who I liked best. 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

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.
Something a little lighter than the last few posts. 😊 My daughter Elaina has been having a hard time sitting in her high chair. She will be two this fall and feels like she is ready for an adult chair. I am not ready for the mess though that would ensue, neither do I want… Continue reading Tigger ate first
I realized after writing my post earlier this morning that I almost missed a very important holiday- Father’s Day. People often say that I look like my dad and I hope that in some ways I act like him too. Elaina and I joined him and my Mom for a walk at Queen Elizabeth park… Continue reading Grateful for my dad
