• Me and Tai Chi

    I like Tai Chi, you know that slow moving stuff you see ‘old’ people doing in the park in China town? I recently came back from a big workshop in Toronto the 20 year anniversary of the passing of the Master of our style. Mr. Moy Lin-Shin. It was my opportunity to see all the […]

  • Grade 6 camp outs and goals

    I admit it, one of my big life goals was fulfilled last week. I got to chaperone my kids Grade 6 school camp out and it was fantastic. Thank you to the SD23 school teachers that made that trip and many before it happen. I am grateful for the amount of time you put into […]

We talked about how adults know the ropes and understand the “policy’s and procedures” of the holidays. But for a little person it’s like asking them […]

  • The power of slowing down

    I occasionally get to treat someone from a far off place. Sometimes I have even been there. We will start talking about how life is in their country. Then I will start to remember how I was there compared to here. We really go with our hair straight back in this country, well I normally […]
