Dare boldly

And Interview and A Poem


My friend, Mark Kolke, has humbled me with an interview on his website, FACILITY Calgary.

I don’t know about you, but when someone writes about me, I feel very uncomfortable — and odd. He makes me sound so…. real and different, all in the same breath.

Thanks Mark for honouring me. For sharing your light to create a place for mine to shine.

May we all shine today in the brilliance of living wildly in love with life in the rapture of now (and that happens to be the theme of my Poem for today – a coincidence as I didn’t know Mark was posting his interview today!) — Living at the Speed of Life.

I believe we each have the capacity to be the change we want to see in the world, to make a world of difference. I believe we are creative beings on the journey of our lifetimes. It's up to each of us to Live It Up and SHINE!

  1. I love it… All we can leave behind is love! That is awesome. I loved what you shared. I kept wondering if it was you! YOU are an amazing public speaker. I was in an abusive relationship when I was young. It has effected me in such a way that I carried the baggage with me for years. Even allowed that person back into my life for a while recently… As in way of closure. THAT was a mistake! But in a way, it has brought me to my knees in a place where I can finally end my book that I am writing. I had been stuck at the ending for two years and even hearing you as confirmed what I want the ending to be.
    Thank you for sharing. I will definitely go on line and buy your book!


    • Thank you! I’m sorry to hear you were in an abusive relationship too — it is so easy to allow them back in and so enlivening to discover — we can stop abuse in our life.

      I look forward to reading your book when it’s finished!

  9. I smiled at his description of you as “a calendar management challenge” to describe your busy life. I wish some of your energy was for sale!
