You do know that your one voice, can, and does make a difference in the life of a helpless child, right?

With what’s happening at with the concentration camp for children, yes that’s what they are, and yes we all need to be deeply disturbed by what we’re seeing and what we’re hearing.  Border patrol officers laughing and making jokes about the children’s wailing, likening it to an “orchestra only missing their conductor.”  With my heart […]

Reading my archived posts, I’m reminded that before #45 was in power there were bullies.

Everything is coming to a head…the final stages of the cottage build, which has us driving five hours over the course of twenty four hours to check in on things, and make sure the final touches, which often go awry, are in order.  Thank God it’s such a relaxing and beautiful place to handle a […]

It’s the Friday round up of my Milk N Heels columns for this past week!

Hello Friends! I’m proud to say that I’ve ended the week with hitting almost thirty thousand words, and eighty one pages.  For those of you who know how non-fiction works, you know that this is about half way done.  Non-fiction differs from fiction in that they like them short and sweet, more like bite size […]

The best way to deal with a bigoted shop owner is, as many of you said, in his wallet.

The responses to yesterday’s What Would You Do Wednesday were all mostly E, go to Yelp and write a review on the company and hope to turn like minded people such as yourself off of doing business with them.  E, also was the option of simply not supporting him and his hardware store.  We all […]

Because it’s Pride month, today’s WWYDW is about this goof in Tennessee and his ignorant sign.

Dare I get too cocky and fall into the false confidence that every single day will bring with it 10,029 words added to my book, I figure I’ll get today’s What Would You Do Wednesday out of the way and then get down to the business of adding to my first draft! Since it is […]

This is my speech I gave at the Butterfly Ball for Boost, I’d like to share it with those of you who weren’t there.

This week will more than likely be a week of blogs that I feel are some of my “personal best” if I may be so bold to type that.  I’ll be posting like this on the days that I writing my book.  I mean, if I’m writing ten thousand words a day to complete the […]

I don’t want Doug Ford as my leader, but I won’t be peer pressured into mass hysteria either.

Alright, I think I’m just going to take a little hiatus from social media, and reading the news.  My heart has taken a beating this year, and we’re only half way through it.  So many parents without their children due to school shootings, and so many children without their parents due to ICE in the […]

Just because somebody looks like they don’t have a story, doesn’t mean they don’t.

My heart is incredibly heavy today.  The title of my blog today is a line from the speech I gave at Boost for Kids when I shared about my sexual abuse as a child.  “Just because somebody looks like they don’t have a story, doesn’t mean they don’t.” How broken, discouraged, hopeless and tortured must […]

I was hoping it was propaganda, this Ontario dog/cat research racket. I’m sad to report it’s not, it’s true.

Well, I’m deeply disturbed, and sad that I’m writing this blog.  I was hoping that what I would uncover about animal testing here in Ontario was just PETA/Vegan propaganda.  Unfortunately this is not at all the case.  Here in Ontario not only do they allow and conduct animal testing, it is even more sordid than […]

Is it naively romantic to want a world where everybody treats one another the way they want to be treated?

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this here on my blog, or if it’s only been on my social media that I’ve talked about this incredible book I’ve been working with since early March.  It’s this phenomenal manifestation book titled: GET WHAT YOU WANT, by Tony Burroughs. Now for each of us, getting what we […]
