My Emotions

Note: I haven’t written anything in a while. This will probably answer why. If not, then I am ok with that and you and us and all. A lot of kiddly things written focus on children’s emotions. How to deal with them, how to embrace them, how to talk about them, etc. I find dealing… Read More ›

How to change a life in 6 weeks, blow up the internet in 24 hours and destroy a person’s confidence in an afternoon of texts.

6 weeks ago I entered into a 42 day fitness challenge. I clung to a thread of hope that on the other side I would have a wee bit more energy, a touch more health, a dash more confidence, enough weight loss to fit into my pre-pregnancy wardrobe, and, if I was exceptionally lucky, I’d… Read More ›

This conclusion of the two-parter is a doozie. If you haven’t listened to… Read More ›

Episode 28: The good Witch of the true North

I catch up with Lindsey McNeill about what it is like to be adopted as an adult, how her and her mom are writing a book about the experience, and what it is like to be a screenwriter, producer, witch, and tarot card reader (and then she reads my tarot cards). Oh yeah, and here… Read More ›

Quality of life

I consider myself a writer. Sometimes I use the word journalist. Sometimes playwright. Other times sketch comedian. I’ve been called a blogger. I try not to use blogger, although that is what I’m doing right now. I’m telling you this because I’ve hit a wall. Not writers block or anything like that. I’ve hit a… Read More ›
