    • From Chaos to Peace

      As an advocate for a healthy relationship with screens and devices, I consider it a bit of a personal mission to find ways to use the Internet to support positive change. Vast social media networks and the huge reach of the web allows us to coordinate ideas, promote causes, and enlist aid across time and space. Whether our goals are personal, professional or community centred, we can use digital tools to enhance and expand our efforts. Online challenges are a perennial favourite for gathering support and creating engagement. They work especially well for business or personal goals,

      Have you ever had that experience where you feel a combination of paralysis and panic? It feels as though you've been filled up with concrete and all that moves inside you is your heart, and that is beating a mile a minute. No? Hm. Well, for some it is a familiar feeling -  a kind of procrastinator's paralysis that prevents progress on goals, or taking action that you know, rationally,

      There's Bears in There

      When I was a girl, I had a cousin the same age who was firmly convinced that bears lived under our shared bed and in the bedroom closet. He would whisper to my mother at bedtime, in his somewhat unnaturally low and serious boy's voice: "Aunty, there's bears in there". This was declared with a five-year old's sad wisdom, clearly conveying his conviction that my mother's complete ignorance of the

      The Suitcases of Tiny Failures

      I recently had the opportunity to talk a little bit about my travels on the multipreneurship path. It was by way of introducing myself on Facebook to a group I'm taking on a mindfulness retreat this Fall. I shared a bit about how I've grown my coaching skills by following the threads of whatever I seem to need more of in my own life. I've been on a personal leadership journey for the past two

A performance of 'The Curious Incident of the

      Want the Truth? Look Inside.

      Woke up this morning pondering the nature of truth. Yep. It's truly the kind of stuff I think about. C'mon, you know you do, too. It's just human to wonder about these things. Many years ago I attended a profound personal development workshop. Posted prominently on the front wall was a large sign pretty much screaming: TELL YOUR TRUTH. Being writerly inclined, I silently pondered: Shouldn't

      Headlines from 1970

      Clans have been gathering in the summertime since time began.  These events can be a strange mixture of reconnecting, reminiscing and regret that can sometimes bring on a sort of bewildering vertigo. The vertigo results from being suddenly flung backward in time into one's ungainly 12-year old self, and when the time travel trigger is one of your first true loves, the journey is a cocktail
