First and foremost, we are alive. I do not say that flippantly. COVID has proven to be a silent traveler and even those who have taken every precaution have become victims. If someone you know has not been so lucky, keep their memory alive… it’s as close to perpetuity as any of us can hope for.

So we laugh. In the quiet moments when we start trying to figure out tomorrow… that’s when we laugh. It’s been ridiculous, so we laugh. We still have a roof and a bed and groceries so we’re a hell of a lot better off than many. Thank the Universe for that.
There’s a lot we can’t control right now… so let’s control that which we can. We can control our thoughts, our behaviours, our mouths, our fists, our weapons. We can choose what we say, what we do, how we treat our neighbours and what sort of hand we offer the person with absolutely nothing but the clothes on their back.

I spend about an hour a day being my dog. Actually, I’m much more delightful than my dog, but that’s a whole other story. Let me explain. I have a Facebook page for my dog. She has about 3500 followers and a weekly reach of 7,000 to 12,000 views. It’s a fun page with a […]
In my last post Are You On Guru Overload, Part 1, I talked about the fact that, if you are trying to accommodate changes in your life that you really don’t like, it doesn’t matter how advantageous they are made to appear, they aren’t going to work for you. Or at least, you aren’t going […]
