WAKING INSTANTS 10: SHIRLEY In 1982 I was a student in a vocational graphic art certification program in Newport, Rhode Island. This was way before Adobe, Mac, and Twitter and with the use of our eyes, rulers, rubber cement and X-ACTO knives, we would, among other things, manually set type […]

WAKING INSTANTS 09: JOSEPHINE “To the left, to the left” she would chant to Beyonce’s “Irreplaceable”. Josephine’s chanting brought a gentle laughter to all of us, at any given time. With delivered acceptance. Jo, as she was often referred, didn’t fit into the culture of mainstream rules and regulations — […]

WAKING INSTANTS 07: MARY Purple. Anything purple — because it was Mary’s favorite colour. She loved 1970’s Cadillac Coupe de Ville’s, playing gin rummy, and she made a mean Portuguese kale soup. She crocheted blankets and table clothes in all sorts of intricate patterns and knitted cream coloured lace doilies […]

WAKING INSTANTS 02: LOUANN LouAnn lived much of her childhood and teen years in Southern California. In high school, I met her sister then subsequently met her. We would all hang out and talk about music, go for very long walks on the beach — and dream, about moving back […]

WAKING INSTANTS 02



Her name is Kay, she is a calligrapher, artist, friend of the family and my dad was her plumber. I had aways been an artist, though not in the traditional sense. My family didn’t encourage art or self expression. My mother told me my abstract paintings made her dizzy and […]

Wayne Dyer
My Lesson from Wayne Dyer As The Hay House World Summit 2016 comes to a close, it is uncanny that I chose Wayne Dyer’s The Next Step as the last talk to listen to. I didn’t do it intentionally —this was synchronicity at work. As I connect the dots of […]

Grateful Giving

Sunday morning brings a quiet gratitude for reflecting on nice people. We usually put a price tag on the word generous or generosity, as our culture illustrates to us in ads for gifts of jewels and baubles. Being generous is about giving. Anything. Your time, your smile, your ear to […]
