I am paralyzed. No, I’m not in a wheel chair. Yes, I still have two legs, and they work. Arms work too. Oh sure, chemotherapy took its toll. I don’t quite have the stamina I used too. And I am […]

A note: To get the most from this article, you really need to click the links and watch the video. I know that takes up time, but honestly, if you’re reading this already, you probably have nothing else to do […]

I recently made the decision to rekindle my interest in art, more specifically, drawing with coloured pencils. As a result I found myself sorting through some old art supplies which had been in storage. As I was flipping through the […]

As I was putting around the house this morning I suddenly had the old saying, “it’s a labour of love” running through my mind. They kept popping up over and over, and I kept shrugging them off as just another […]

As a writer, I have no shortage of ideas. I know that might seem like an odd thing to say. You might be thinking I must be the luckiest writer in the world to have such an abundance of things […]

Can you trust your brain? It’s a more important question than you might think, and more importantly if you think you can out-think your brain, you are probably greatly mistaken. Say what??? Out-think your brain? That’s crazy talk isn’t it? […]

I have just finished reading the most refreshing business book I have ever come across. It’s called Rework, and it is truly unique. It the rebellious step child of business books. It breaks all the rules and it encourages you […]

“Let’s do something tonight!”, I texted furiously, disregarding my numerous touch screen induced typos in favour of getting my message across as quickly as possible. “Like what?” “I don’t know anything, let’s just not sit around the house tonight.” “Okay, […]
