The People’s Princess…

I wonder if other girls my age are feeling it this week... The sadness. The picked-the-scab-off of it all. She was our Elvis, our Marilyn, our JFK. Taken from us shockingly, without warning. I was always fascinated by the Royal Family. Just over a week before my mother died, I saw the Queen Mum. She... Continue Reading →


What is my Purpose? 

I was recently contemplating my purpose in life and feeling bad about essentially not really having one. Then today I thought about all the doors I hold open, all the heavy bags, shopping carts, and strollers I help carry up and down stairs, and on and off streetcars. All the coffees and sandwiches I buy... Continue Reading →

2016 Resolution – January overview

I made a very simple resolution this year - Seek Kindness 1) be kind to myself 2) change the conversation in my head 3) find the positive in every situation spiraling into the darkness. This isn't something measurable really, nor is it something I can boast about on my social media channels as some sort... Continue Reading →

Happy? Father’s Day 

Gosh I miss my dad. Life keeps spiralling lately, and I feel very... untethered, like I could blow away at any moment. I've lost all confidence in myself... again... only he's not here to tell me it's all gonna be ok, to "give my head a shake", or to cook me that ridiculous meal of... Continue Reading →


I realized today that I'm not jealous, or rather envious I should say, of people's "things". I see "The ladies who lunch" in their fancy duds, with their shopping bags from designer stores, and I merely shrug. That's not me. Never really has been. I don't even get the same tinge of green when I... Continue Reading →

DTOTD: Apologies 

Here's the thing, when one "accepts" your apology, they are not absolving you of your indiscretions or actions towards them. They are merely "accepting" your guilt, and your need to be let off the hook for your bad behaviour. "Acceptance" is not forgiveness. It's just a way for everyone to move on without more carnage....

Midnight Run & Party – ’14

All year I'd planned on running the Midnight Run on New Year's Eve here in Toronto. I've been running like a beast all year and I thought what better way to kick off the new year than to RUN full throttle into it at the stroke of midnight! But as it grew closer, and after... Continue Reading →

New Year… New…

shoes! You thought I was gonna say "me" didn't you? Well, that just seemed so fucking cliche as it was coming out of the tip of my fingers, no matter how true the sentiment may reveal itself to be later on this coming year. I don't need to look back at my entry from a... Continue Reading →

Tannenbaum 10K

Since my Saturdays aren't available, I had to forgo running the Santa Shuffle & the Resolution Run this year, and choose a Sunday event to close out my 2014 running season. The only thing close, and on a Sunday, was the Tannenbaum 10K. Did I want to do a 10K for my last hurrah? Not... Continue Reading →
