happy place, happy space: exuberance

Not the lead up to the holidays we expected. Yet, so much to be thankful for.

As we celebrate a sober, quieter Thanksgiving this week, I am grateful for the safety and health of my family & friends around the world. I am not prone to worrying but this year has brought numerous occasions for anxiety as we are distanced from loved ones. I am thankful they are as well as they can be.


I am very thrilled for my poem, Adrift, to be included in Whispers & Echoes Journal this week.


Reading your Small Pleasures, Smiles & Gratitude brings me to my happy place. I hope having them in one place makes it easier for you to find when you need a bit of happy therapy, too.

If you would like to join in, ping back to this post and I will include you next week.

Gift of Hope

From Day to Night, the tree reminds me that we all need a little Hope this season.

As December fast approaches, our family has turned thoughts to what we would like to share with our family & friends this season.

Perhaps the message of this prominent pinwheel Christmas tree along one of my favourite run routes down Orchard Road is appropriate as we contemplate the coming of the Christ-child.

As we struggle to make sense and find our way in this new world, my hope for you is peace, joy and love.
