Stay.

Stay.

Growing up and growing apart. Once best friends, now occasional texts to promise to get together. Loved ones separated by provinces, water, cities, and distance, find a common ground. Fate made us siblings, but hearts made us friends. The social landscape may change, but the people stay the same. Stay. Getting bigger, becoming a woman. […]

Positively Negative

Positively Negative

What is it about being negative that is so hard to shake? It’s like junk food for the social mind. People love to bitch. I have had issues in the past with being pessimistic. I still do. But I try and fight the urge to complain about stuff. But if you talk to my wife […]

Rooms

Rooms

I used to be more involved in social media. But things change and we get complacent, our priorities shift. It happens to everyone. We see our friends and family less and we tend to become a little more selfish and pull into our own little cocoons. This is normal. But it isn’t a way to live […]

Echoes

Echoes

Hello, hello, helloooo… A reverberating sound, a similar image, an event, a traumatic experience, a life lesson. Everything has happened before, history repeats itself, this is a given. We tend to do the same things over and over again. Do we learn from our mistakes? Sometimes. Do we take those lessons and avoid the same […]

My Five

My Five

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn I like quotes and this one has always been one of my favourites. I thought I would look into the five people I spend most of my time with and see if it lives up to it’s word. […]

Fail More

Fail More

I know, the title seems a little self defeating, but trust me, it’s all good. At the beginning of the year I put together a list, like we all do at the beginning of the year. We want to better ourselves, we make promises to the New Years resolution god and hope that the mere […]

We Will Fix You

We Will Fix You

So, a lot has happened in the last little while. My middle of the prairies city named Calgary, has flooded and had a train derail on a weakened bridge with petroleum tankers on it liable to explode if not handled correctly. All within a week. It’s not hell or high water, it’s hell and high-water…bah […]

Mini Vacations

Mini Vacations

You ever find in this modern world the prevalence of anxiety, the number of overwhelmed people walking the streets right next to you. I think our brains are only wired to deal with one problem at a time. Hunt, kill, eat. In that order. But now its, hunt five different things at a time, in three different time […]

Transitions

Transitions

Like the transition between two types of video clips, my life is making a transition of it’s own. Not a cross dissolve, not a page curl, but a star wipe. I am switching career paths after ten years of running on a treadmill. I am moving onto bigger and better things and have a smile […]

Third Eye Wide Open

Third Eye Wide Open

As the date December 21, 2012 approaches people get more and more anxious. Is it the end of the world? Is it the Zombie Apocolypse? Is a giant solar flare going to wipe us out? Could be, but I doubt it, more than likely this is a transition for us as a species, sorry to […]
