DEBRA OPENED UP MY EYES TO WHAT I REALLY WANTED OUT OF MY CAREER AND ULTIMATELY, MY LIFE AND FUTURE. SHE HELPED ME OVERCOME FEARS THAT PREVENTED ME FROM CONSIDERING OTHER POSSIBILITIES.

Within Every Loss Lies Your Opportunity to Win.

I don’t watch the Academy Awards every year because they usually don’t hold my interest. But this year, recovering from a little surgery, I snuggled up on the couch with a friend, her dog, my man, and together we watched the spectacle. And something happened that has never happened before. I’m sure you’ve heard about…

Tune for a Tuesday Afternoon #6

Except for the yogurt and sauerkraut in my fridge, there’s not much about me that’s cultured. “Freaky” – yep. “Fringe-dweller” – it’s been said. “Different” – Definitely. I’ve been called many things, but nobody’s ever accused me of being cultured. But I surprised myself, back in the 90s, when I was walking down Granville Street one evening…

What the World Series and Presidential Election reminded me to do.

When I left my hometown, I also left The Blue Jays and all things baseball behind. I’d been a big fan, but there was no MLB team in Vancouver and I just got busy with other things. Almost 30 years later I found myself watching baseball again. My in-laws all live in Chicago, and they…

What would your alternate life teach you?

A few weeks ago, at the LA Dance Collective, I tapped into my alternate life and set my inner Go-Go Girl free. She’s playful and fun. She twirls and whirls with her eyes closed. Flits from one partner to another, like a happy hummingbird. I recognized my alternative life a few years ago. One day I wondered what…

Tune for a Tuesday Afternoon #3

Elections can be such polarizing events. I can easily get defensive of my position, sure of my rightness, and think you’re an idiot for your choice of candidates. Or I can open my heart and be vulnerable. I can feel that under my posturing and anger, there is fear. And it gets in the way…

Tune for a Tuesday Afternoon #2

I’m learning things I haven’t wanted to learn. Back-end, technical stuff that doesn’t exactly turn my crank. But I want to share my new book with you, so I’m learning, I’m growing, and stumbling through. My desire to share with you is bigger than my resistance to technology, so I’m choosing to learn. I’m committed…
