A thank you from Hannah

Hannah really wanted to share how grateful she is for all of your support, and so I asked her to write a little something to share with you. She’s written it so beautifully, that’s about all the introduction it needs. Take it away, Hannah.   “I’ve tried to write this message a few times over […]

Remembering my center

Sometimes I wonder if I am, in fact, one of the densest people alive. Really and truly. But maybe this is just the lesson I need to learn right now. Again and again, if I don’t do anything creative for longer than 3 days, I’m seriously cranky. The sad thing is, I then wonder why […]

Always listen to the happy 93 year old.

She probably knows something you don’t. I met the most marvellous woman this weekend. Charlotte is her name. Every single Saturday, she shows up at the Queen Street arts festival, rain or shine, and stays all day to sell her art. She is 93 years old, and has more life than most 18 year olds. […]
