Thank you …. for the gift of Free and Laughing.  I made sure to include it as part of my ‘library’ that I brought with me to Central Africa. I received this e-mail yesterday from my friend Nadine McNeil.  It warmed my heart to know that my book was having an impact half way around the […]

Last week the results of Round 2 of the Next Top Spiritual Author competition were announced.   I have not advanced to the next round.

Imagine returning on New Year’s Day to Toronto (-10 Celsius) from 12 days in Jamaica (+30 Celsius) to find that the radiator in your home is not working!  Remember, this is a public holiday, with nowhere open.  You do not know how to get the radiator fixed, as you have never had to have a […]

I saw the movie “Invictus” last night and thought I would share the poem with you today.  Lessons, lessons, lessons.  Go and see the movie for a real lesson on leadership with integrity.  In the meantime, think about this poem and remember ALWAYS that you are the master of your fate and the captain of […]

One of my daily affirmations over the past 6 or so months has been: “The dogs move safely and happily to Canada with ease, grace and joy”.  Each morning I have repeated this affirmation, sometimes adding a visualisation of their journey and life here, sometimes a prayer of gratitude, sometimes a quiet meditation.

There are times when your world doesn’t seem to be working so well, when we wonder what is wrong – with us, with others, with everything. At such times there are feelings of discomfort, lack, disorder and even despair in our lives. We may look at our goals, desires and stated intentions and they seem […]

My younger son Shane came home on Saturday night from spending two days with his friends which included an active, fun-filled day at the Yacht Club. He repaired into the bathroom to prepare for his shower, but quickly reappeared at my bedside where I lay reading, exclaiming: “Mummy. I lost my chain in the pool!” […]

I woke up on the Friday morning after Tropical Storm Gustav had passed, happy that my home had suffered no damage, only to hear the news that the fence separating my property from the golf course was down. I now had an unimpeded panoramic view – the green melting into a row of trees, on […]

The beginning of the end?

Many people are in despair about what is happening in the world today – war, civil conflicts, rebelliousness of the youth, disease, drug abuse, slavery, poverty! Some see an acceleration and intensifying of these afflictions, predicting that the end is nigh. “What’s happening in the world today” people sigh, unsure as to whether we are […]
