She danced to the beat – her body transported by the rhythm. For she was made to fly – her feet never touching the ground. I thought I’d start this post off on a quick poetic note. I haven’t been doing much writing as of late and I’m beginning to feel the side-effects. Writing connects…Continue reading Aiming for the Stars and Other Pursuits

First of all, I’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy Sunday. And as you can see, I’ve just learned how to use Bitmojis in WordPress via the Bitmoji Chrome Extension. Who doesn’t love this fun app? To be honest, I didn’t use Bitmoji much on my old phone. My Samsung…Continue reading Catching up to the Digital Age
In last week’s post I shared part 1 of The Seekers. I wrote that I’d share the second and final part this week, but I forgot that it would be Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada. We celebrate a lot earlier than our American neighbors. As I write this post, the turkey is roasting in the…Continue reading Happy Thanksgiving to My Friends in Canada!
Too early to set up yet, Ronny lit a cigarette. The target wasn’t due for another forty minutes. Ronny preferred it that way. He liked to relax before each job. It was a time to collect his thoughts and prepare. At twenty-eight, Ronny was still new to the business – just a week shy of…Continue reading The Target

When writing a flash fiction story, I try to keep it as lean as possible, keeping it around the 1000 word count. I hope you enjoy reading.…Continue reading A Symbol of Hope
Introduction Becky is a fictional character in the short story that I’m working on. I probably should’ve had this story completed by now, but I don’t. Ah well. It’ll be done when it’s done. You might still consider the whole conversation to be complete nonsense. But I’m hoping that you enjoy it, of course. Speaking…Continue reading Silent Passengers – A Conversation with Becky

We were gone for a week, making it one of our shorter trips. We usually go for…Continue reading We Can’t Enjoy the Sunshine Without the Rain
Another school year has ended and now comes the much awaited summer vacation by teachers and students alike. I had the honor of spending my last day of school with a beautiful group of grade 12 students, who will be moving on next year to find their own path to success. As we know, the…Continue reading My Happiness Manifesto – The Key to My Success
Well, it’s that time of year again. My brain is officially mush. You could mash it with a plastic spoon at this point. The June by-product of being a (substitute) teacher. It’s been a busy school year for me. In addition to work, I’ve spent every available minute from November to February putting my book…Continue reading A Few Quick Thoughts
