There are always loving hands

I have created an altar in my bedroom on which I place objects that are sacred to me. Not because the objects themselves are sacred, but because of what they mean to me. One thing I always keep on the altar is a blooming orchid plant to signify beauty, life and the transcendent nature of […]

What you do matters a great deal – even to 1 person

In addition to blogging, I publish a fortnightly newsletter that focuses on Leadership and Strategy. My most recent issue was due on Thursday January 2, 2014. Oh GROAN! I am on vacation in Jamaica, far away from the ice storms in Toronto and very much in rest and relaxation mode. A newsletter was the last […]

All I want for Christmas …

“Happy Christmas to all indeed. Must remember that for 3 days one of the most important things was a live electrical outlet!” So texted my sister Carole, from Toronto, Canada shortly after power was restored to her home. What do we really need? Last Sunday I observed a woman get totally discombobulated about having to […]

“So sistah, do you feel any different?” asked my brother-in-law Arsenio, as I entered the kitchen, he turning the frying chicken, I peeling off my winter coat. Do I feel any different? I went to bed as usual on Friday night, drifting off gently, the magazine I was reading slipping from my hands as my whole body […]

Love After Love

Perhaps because of my many trips to St. Lucia over the past 2 years, I have decided to reacquaint myself with the only Caribbean Nobel Laureate in Literature – Derek Walcott. I have fallen in love with this poem, which is one of his most well-known. It speaks to my soul. Love After Love The […]

How does one live to be 109 years old?

My friend, Alice Herz-Sommer knows how. She’s my friend, even though I have never met her. For whenever I see her photograph or a YouTube clip I feel a connection born out of our shared love of life, of laughter, of living. She is exactly who I want to be when I “grow up”. I blogged about Alice […]

Be Gentle On Yourself

I haven’t written a blog in a few moons. Everyday I look at my “to-do” list and there, big and bold like a billboard on a highway, is “WRITE BLOG”. And every day, the blog goes unwritten, the billboard fading away in the distance of the busy-ness of my day. As the no-blog days accumulate, […]

Mind Your Own Business

Focus on your own abundance, your own dreams, the reality you are creating. Don’t focus on others – wondering how they can afford, what they have, how they spend their money, how they live their lives. That is their business. When you focus on others, you are dispersing energy on things that do not serve […]


How old is “plenty-nine”? A few days ago, my dear friend Debby celebrated her ninetieth birthday. Her party yesterday was one of those events where love abounded in infinite amounts and joy reigned gloriously. I felt blessed and honoured to be counted among the specially invited – nothing could have kept me away – I […]

How to deal with the button-pushers in your life

There are times when people push our buttons, vaulting us into all sorts of out-of-control and undesirable states. And if these people push our buttons often enough, even the mere thought of them causes our buttons to go off. They have done absolutely nothing. But we are in a state. And we act accordingly; thinking, […]
