Dare boldly

From GO to Ease back and relax mode


We are off an adventure today. Into the office for a catch-up morning and then, C.C. and I fly east to red and golden leaves, warmer temperatures and NO SNOW for a week.

A nephew’s wedding in Toronto and then, 5 days with our dear friends at their beautiful cottage on a lake in the woods west of Ottawa.

How lovely.

In the interim, I’ll be posting photos of Maple trees turning red and lake water shimmering in golden light.

But for today, one last shot at winter’s early descent here in Calgary as I switch from ‘go’ to ‘ease back and relax’ mode.

I’ll be seeing you occasionally here, but mostly, I’ll be soaking up the good vibes of spending time with dear friends surrounded by the beauty and wonder of Mother Nature falling with grace into autumn glory. (instead of skipping autumn and going straight to winter!)

And for those who are wondering, yesterday’s snowfall was a record for October. Not in a hundred years, they say, have we seen so much snow in one day in October!

Well I’ll be dashed if the crops ain’t thrashed, as my brother-in-law likes to say. He’s a prairie boy y’a know and he knows what he’s talkin’ about when he’s talkin’ about the weather!

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.

  1. Eastern Ontario awaits your arrival in full autumnal splendour! Thanks for your first photo of a band of fresh fluffy snow that evokes a quiet solitude of peace.

  2. Enjoy the glorious colours of Ontario! Jim chuckled when he read about his prairie phrase about the crops and was surprised that you remembered it. I said that he has spoken that phrase “a few” times over the years. One of my favourites is “fair to middlin” when someone asks yow you are! Safe travels and have fun. Much Love, Jackie


  3. You kick back and relax without snow


  4. The feel of your pace makes my heart go a little smoother and I remember to breathe a little slower
    and remember the peace that invites. Thank you:)
