Stone Still

If you look deeply into the photograph, civilization is within the rock. We human beings are part of nature, part of rock/stone, contained within it, not separate from it! See! Photo taken at Toronto Lakeshore. Look and see the CN Tower within the stone, feel the stone within us, solid and still. Stone is part…

Twilight in the frog pond

Mysteries dwell in the pond deep and murky Unknown 🍃 Sundown paints the scene in lengthening shadows Darkness 🍃 Seamlessly noise ceases gloom begets the quiet Wonder 🍃 Trust where the light has gone twilight in the frog pond Surrender. 🍃 Acrylic creation @mymedicineislove.

How much time do we spend…thoughtless?

In essence, we bribe ourselves and others to make us feel better, all the while the truth is we belittle ourselves and those around us by our behaviour, lowering our own self-esteem and relinquishing our power. We don’t live our truth, we live our guilt and shame historically and repeat and repeat these things over and over again to ourselves and others in lieu of the truth. When we don't show up for ourself, speak our truth even though we know it may disappoint, the truth is, we take on the disappointment. When we begin to see others as ourselves we understand this truth.

Rooted we RISE!

Digging right in… Everywhere I go, I am asked to sign in, sanitize, stick a needle in my arm, regardless of knowing if the contents of this said needle may or may not fu k myself up, the human population and the future children of humanity. Everyone seems to believe in the words from government,…

Can you imagine!

A morning visit to the Art Gallery of Ontario recently and the powerful beauty of the evening sky invoked something ancient and deep within which I would like to share. I attended a ceremony honouring the indigenous children who never returned home from the residential school system they attended; the dead, the surviving and the…

“HELP FROM ABOVE”

Indeed, this little All Nations Series DVD entitled "The Life of Jesus Christ" and "Help from Above" booklet published by World Missionary Press, could only have landed in my hands from "above". To this film, claiming to be the most widely distributed film in history, translated into over 1400 languages and seen by over 3…

Home?

This is a city bus shelter. Every morning I walk the dog. She usually chooses our route. Last week, at least once a day, she took me past this bus shelter where a man was living. The man often held a cigarette and could usually be found sitting hunched over on the bench chatting harmlessly…
