Channel into discovery

  On my way back home from the holiday trip this year, I treated myself to a little inspiration packed in the shape of a magazine (two of them to be exact). I always seem to be drawned to OK! And People Magazine, but this time of the year… I needed a little more umph […]

Call me Grandma Moses

At a memorial service, a couple of weeks ago, I bumped into an old friend from school. We talked about the trivial stuff of life and then we started talking about our new found selves. He has become his own man, a very generous one I found out that day, and while I was sharing […]
