    Greetings, I have a love-hate relationship with what I consider content delivery mechanisms, whether it is social media, print, audio, video or digital. Over the years, we have allowed and/or been manipulated into letting these, particularly digital, take over our lives. I have spent the last couple of years weaning myself off things like notifications and being ‘always on’ but can’t bring myself to step away totally, because there are […]

    Greetings, I try to be cognisant of the biases and perspectives behind the people whose work, writing, thinking, etc that I follow. This is especially the case when I explore particular rabbit holes, ie. recommended books from an author whose book I first read. Sometimes, I will go from book to book, picking a book recommended in the book I am reading.

    Greetings, Here are 7 things I would like to share in this week’s newsletter: I have always been fascinated by both how things are made and the end product. My new thing is book cover design for which I started a Pinterest Board. Two cover designers I was recently introduced to are

    Greetings, It can be easy to assume that we are all so connected that, should you share it on social media, many will hear about it. And yet, I am constantly reminded that it isn’t the case.

Things end up ebbing and flowing and I am learning that it’s alright. Life happens and, as long as I feel that I am moving […]

    Greetings, A lot of my memories reside in the songs I was listening to in the moments. Sometimes the stories in the songs correlated with the experiences, sometimes they didn’t. Regardless, there is something about being taken back in time when you hear a certain chord, or melody, or lyric.

    Greetings, Here are 7 things that I wanted to share. 1 We wake up every day, try to get on with the day-to-day, all the while afraid that the next message, or call, or Tweet will be a notification of another person that has succumbed to COVID-19. There is a heaviness in the air. It seems to hang there, just beyond our consciousness. We are unable to grieve because there […]

    Greetings I believe that we are all inherently creative and manifest our creativity in different ways regardless of profession or industry. Creativity is not the sole domain of those we deem ‘creatives’. As a working writer, most of the work I do, whether consulting or writing, is in the corporate space. I find that allowing my creativity to manifest when writing about anything enables me to find new ways of […]
