Truth and Reconciliation

comes at a cost

those who have already paid

the process

takes time

takes even longer


In Canada, September 30 marks the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day honours the Survivors of residential schools, the children who never returned home, and their families and communities.
Orange Shirt Day is an indigenous-led grassroots commemorative day intended to raise awareness of the individual, family and community inter- generational impacts of residential schools and to promote the concept of “Every Child Matters”.

Mondays are just young Fridays

Each morning, every morning, there is time to consider plans for the day, for the weeks, months, perhaps years ahead.
   Formulated in quiet thought, these goals might not be concrete, or complete, but they are personal reminders of what can be achieved over time.
   If I write them down they seem real; more than dreams and wishes. Maybe even more than I should ask for, or more than I am allowed?
   Only time will tell.

Comfort food,
as the temperature dips.


Restaurant special,
mom’s recipe or
make it up as you go.

Is there a better day
than today?

Be nourished.

Take the time
to enjoy.

Remember the leftovers.

I'm like a pencil;
sometimes sharp,
most days
other times
dull or
Still I write.

Tend To Your Mind

Commitment: it’s one of those tough words.
  At times commitment is tough, especially when it comes to yourself.
  You know you need to tend to your mind, but where do you find the time?
  You feel you’ve got things to say, but when do you fit it into your day?
  Commitment: it takes time.

Build a journaling ritual you can rely upon, one you will stay committed to, no matter what else you do. FINDING YOUR VOICE – MAKING THE CHOICE will guide you through the process of creating time to write it all out.

Whether you regularly journal, have let the practice slide, or if you simply want to get started, this online program allows you to fit the daily prompts into your schedule.
In the closed forum, we will walk through the days with simple, effective, soul-nourishing exercises, authentic support, and the company of like-minded soul-seekers going through the process with you (and we’ll have some fun).
