About me

I seem to have this ability to express myself through writing and I rather enjoy it.  I learned from a very young age that if I were to write about how I was feeling or thinking it would be well received, often more so than any attempts at verbalizing the same thoughts.

I want to write. Not only about the things that come easily and naturally for me but I want to expand and broaden my areas of confidence when it comes to writing.  I have never given it time or attention.  I’m not sure how or about what or why but I feel pulled, drawn, that the universe is calling, that it’s time to begin the journey.  It is my hope and dream that I get fulfillment from this mecca of mine.

I want to learn and grow as a writer.  I want to learn and grow as a listener.  I want to learn to engage the reader, stir the reader and most of all connect with the reader.

I would rather save the details of the ‘about’ to my writing.  Let it unravel, to let  you experience and get to know me through revelations in my writing.  I want our relationship to be unique.  Have your idea of who I am and what I am about blossom from with in you.

All that being said to help you know about me, I am first generation born Canadian (family from England) I am in my 40’s, I was married when I started this blog however now divorced and engaged with a new partner, I have children and grandchildren. I have raised 8 children both my own and adopted. I am currently a slow travelling digital nomad wandering, pondering and recollecting as I go.

I care about community, volunteerism, education, travel, culture, knowledge and enlightenment.  I have a big fascination with the Universe, space, time and all of the sciences.

It is important to me that people learn and understand that they are special and unique.  That they have a destiny and a purpose during their time here on this beautiful planet.

I share my life, my story, my adventures and teachings in hopes to help inspire others to do the same.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to bother with my Blog.

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking the time to read my latest post…err, should I say assignment? It seems we are on the same journey, learning to express our creativity in our writing. Congratulations on your recent publication of your poetry!

  2. Melody J Haislip

    Your ‘voice’ is very appealing, and you’re articulate and express yourself beautifully. I’m so glad I followed the trail of breadcrumbs back here. I see you’ve recently published poetry. That is my current aim. Thank you for stopping in.

    Hi, thanks for liking my post! You have a very interesting blog. What kind if stuff are your poems about? I must admit to being a bit of a philistine when it comes to poetry!

      Thank you. I appreciate the kind words. My blog is so much a part of me now. It is the one place that I express my thoughts and feelings and put it out there….often walking away from the day feeling heard and understood….
      I’m happy to know that you will be reading.

    Hi Jennifer, the philistine has returned! I read your poems. I think i liked ‘Closer’ the best. That was the one that conjured the most images in my head. I’ll be honest I still don’t really ‘get’ poetry but good on you, you are obviously very talented! 😊

    Your kindness in acknowledging my post is most appreciated. There are many interesting posts here and I will be following along with the thousands of others who preceded me in visiting here. The evidence of the luminous spirit within you is everywhere here, and I have no doubt that your children will grow up to be ambassadors of the generosity of spirit evident in your writing. Thank you for sharing such a gift with us!

    Regards….John H.

    Thanks for this post. I relate to this because I share similar sentiments about writing. The difference is that I took a 50 year hiatus. Keep expressing yourself! You will lift yourself up and others!

    Hi Jennifer. Thanks for visiting and liking my blog abut all things natural…and beautiful. I like the way you write. Keep it up and remember, in the words of Brene Brown…don’t take advice from anyone who is not out there in the arena in the midst of the battle! xx

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope you will drop by more often and I hope that I can sustain your interest. Like you, I find it much easier to express myself in the written word. Which is not say that I won’t talk all day if you give me a white board and / or a presentation to do. 🙂

    I am not sure how you stumbled upon my blog, but I am glad you did as now I have found yours and quite enjoying reading it! You are very inspirational, I love your tips and also your collaboration idea! However, having a hard time finding your Follow button?! Maybe because I’m on my phone!?

    Thank you for liking my post! I am a new blogger, so please, any advice, comments, or feedback is welcome.  Also, can you share a few post with me where I can learn more about you and your craft. I am married with little children, so making time to read and write is difficult, much less do research. I usually do my writing under pressure during break times at work, but it becomes a little hard to thinking through an idea when I have to hurry. Mrs., thank you again and good luck with all future endeavors. Later!

    Thank you so much for following and liking my work! I will definitely look out for your work more and I’d love to send you a poem or two as part of a guest post if you really enjoy my poetry! Good luck with your book!

    ” I’m not sure how or about what or why but I feel pulled, drawn, that the universe is calling, that it’s time to begin the journey.”

    I know *exactly* how you feel. I started writing when I was 10 (quite a few years ago, trust me!) but I have never poured all the energy into my craft as I know I should have.

    But I’ve recently re-committed to blogging (again! but you just always keep getting up no matter how many times you fall…..) and now, it’s *definitely* time. 🙂
