I love you Dad and I miss you! Happy Father’s Day!


I’ve never written about Father’s Day…I don’t exactly know why that is. My father died on a business trip to India when I was 15 – at that age when so many of us, (me included), think our parents know nothing. I talked back to both of them. It seemed I had no control over …

Mother Earth’s Day?


Tonight I’ll be reading at a special annual event to honour mothers. Walking in My Mother’s Shoes involves musicians, visual artists and writers, all contributing their unique talents.  In addition to my written piece, I created  the painting, Mother Earth – View of Africa, (featured above) for the event.

A Glorious Day to Say Goodbye

It’s Valentine’s Day!


It’s Valentine’s Day – a day for expressions of love that goes back to the Middle Ages. Handwritten cards did not appear until after 1400; the oldest valentine in existence was one written by Charles, Duke of Orleans in 1415 to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London.

Chick Flick Confession


I have a confession to make. I love “Chick Flicks”, in particular those soppy romantic comedies in which the main character struggles through a relationship crisis but always ends up with the ’right’ guy in a ‘happily ever after’ ending. Understand, I enjoy many movies genres but this one fills my inner child’s love of …

Sister’s Keeper?


Walking The Path that winds itself through the underground maze of downtown Toronto shops and restaurants, I noticed how people avoided eye contact and didn’t return a friendly smile or a “good morning” greeting.
