Summertime always throws me off the wagon. Not alcohol — I don’t drink. I mean, off the wagon of routine. The higher temperatures and humidity of summer, the laissez-faire days, create a heaviness that seems to block my daily intentions. It is one reason I welcome Sept...

This World Cup has been interesting. Although I haven’t been watching all the games as closely as I had in the past, but like many, I have been involved in an office pool. We are a largely international clinic, with a majority of Latin Americans, and even though there...

At the beginning of this year I decided it was time to downsize and get rid of a lot of the stuff accumulating in my house. There was just something about it all that was stressing me out, making me feel stuck. There are so many things that I own that I do not really n...

I came down to a table set for three, though there is no one else. It is dead silent.

I walk into the kitchen. It is clean and appears empty. No sign of food. I am starving, having eaten very little since the day before. 

I call out “Hello?” 

Immediately a man...

This was the first time I landed in India and felt completely calm. Usually, as soon as I get here, the air hits me and I tense up with anxiety.  It takes me a while to adjust to the other side of the world. But this time when I landed, I felt a release. I guess I have...

I'm stuck home with the flu right now and I’m the worst sick person. Not that I whine or complain. No, I am the opposite. I do not allow myself to rest. I keep going and pushing through until my body physically says no, and I can barely get up to get to the bathroom....

Many of you may have resolved to make changes, and much encourage...

The other day, I had the most incredible experience.

I went to a workshop in East End – the other side of town, a place I rarely go to anymore. The workshop was in a tiny dark community theatre space in Leslieville. I knew none of the other 20 people in the room except...

I opened the box, not knowing what contents it held. It was full of old pictures. Amongst them was one of my friend Dan Bourque, smiling on a sunny day, on a sail boat. Just how i want to remember him.

As many of you may know, Tuesday November 8th, the long awaited day of the American Election, was my birthday. I had to work that day, but it was no trouble, I had the next day off, and was planning to celebrate.

Well, we all know how that went. Wednesday, November 9th...
