    Kindness

    Tuesday, July 18, 2017

    Forget everything you’ve been taught. Forget about achieving. Forget about Bachelors degrees, or Honours, or Masters. Forget about owning things. Forget about money. Forget everything but this. Kindness is the only thing that matters. Kindness to yourself, because that’s where all kindness begins. Look upon yourself with love. With compassion. With humour. And then turn […]

On the upside, you are free to follow your interests, have full control – and responsibility for – your schedule and business administration, and you can […]

    In praise of the everyday

    Monday, June 26, 2017

    After years of writing about – and occasionally experiencing – some pretty fancy stuff, I have to say that I am loving the humble life. Aldi Champagne instead of Veuve. Homemade casseroles instead of degustations. Days of laundry, writing, baby mama-ing and coffees with friends. There’s a lot of joy to be found in this new […]

    The fourth trimester

    Thursday, June 22, 2017

    There’s nothing like a new baby to mess up your relationship. I am not saying we don’t love him. We obsessively, completely do. We are both like super crazy thriller movie stalkers (think of a room wallpapered in pictures of our baby’s every move with some black pen drawings for extra craziness. And maybe some poems. […]

Friendship mosaic

I have a theory that we are all more beautiful when you put us together. Groups form patterns, and viewed from outside, the unified form becomes much more interesting than a single unit. Friendship groups have energy. They grow and breathe, like a forest with a complex web of interconnected root and soil structures forming […]

Levity

I had an art teacher named Robbie Robertson who was born on February 29th. He was a master of levity. Being a head teacher is a responsible position but he made it seem like a rock and roll adventure. Being around him always made you feel like you were up to no good; mischievous, irresponsible […]
