Toronto Women's March: I've Always Been Marching In My Own

Toronto Women's March: I've Always Been Marching In My Own Way

When I first heard about the Women's March on Washington back in November, I felt called to get involved. I've used my words and my voice over the years, but have never physically marched. It was finally the time! I decided to stand with the thousands of other concerned citizens and march in solidarity here in Toronto.

You Say You Want a Revolution...

As astrology predicted, what happened during the conjunction of Uranus and Pluto in the '60s, would manifest globally when these two planets reached their first square. If you haven't heard, we just came out of a three-year period (2012 to 2015) where we experienced seven exact squares of Uranus and Pluto!

My Mother Taught Me Living To 100 Is All About Attitude

When people ask what her "secret" is, she laughs, as she honestly cannot believe she is 100. That's a big part of what aging well looks like, too. Of all the lessons my mother leaves those who know her, is her love of living and desire to be here. To be active, to contribute and to live life to the max, regardless of your circumstances.

New Year's Resolutions: Why We Do What We

New Year's Resolutions: Why We Do What We Do

Making New Year's resolutions originated with the Babylonians, who reportedly made promises to the Gods in hopes they'd earn good favour in the coming year. If health is number one on people's resolution list every year, I was curious what other resolutions people continue to commit to.

You Should Take Fun

You Should Take Fun Seriously

Although we have more leisure time in our lives, we are having less fun. We could reap the benefits throughout our lives if we would give ourselves permission to indulge in some childlike fun. Realizing that I might not have been taking fun seriously, I'm committed to now share freely my own particular brand of fun without hesitation with anyone who asks.

More Women Should Call Themselves

More Women Should Call Themselves "Beautiful"

If we can instill self-confidence and self-love in girls at a young age, perhaps we can turn this distorted view we have of what beauty is around, so that "beautiful," will be the norm for everyone, rather than the exception reserved for the few.

At sometime in our lives, many of us have probably stopped to imagine what it would be like to live with unlimited fortune

Real Beauty Comes From the Inside

Real Beauty Comes From the Inside Out

What motivates women to spend so much money in an attempt to retain their youthful beauty, when too often the results have them looking like an "unreal" version of their former self? (That's being kind.) Do women <em>really</em> believe beauty comes from the outside-in?

Five Key Lessons the Over 90 Generation Can Teach

Five Key Lessons the Over 90 Generation Can Teach Us

Documenting and preserving their stories, their legacy, is so crucial now as a way to offer younger generations a chance to learn from them. My fear is they might become a generation reserved for casual historical mentions of the times they lived in, their memories and lessons forgotten and lost forever.

Music, Memories and Healing: My Love of James Taylor

It wasn't the first time I've seen James Taylor. In fact this could have been the 10th or 11th or the 20th. I've lost track. I do remember the first time though. And I remember how his music has been a thread weaving together the soundtrack of my life.

Visionary on a Mission - Introducing Saki Mafundikwa

There are people who believe you can't go home again. Saki Mafundikwa isn't one of them. Born in Zimbabwe, he exhibited an extraordinary talent for drawing from an early age, yet his options appeared limited, as the idea of "design" was unknown.

The Mother of All

The Mother of All Mothers

Growing up in the 50's and 60's, my mother Lillian was primarily a "stay-at-home"mother. It's not that she didn't have high aspirations for her future, as she dreamed of being a dancer. However, times required she go to work directly after graduating high school as a bookkeeper for a dress manufacturer, her professional dancing dreams dashed.
