Life is a Series of Transitions


The smell of decaying leaves nauseated me. Though decay and death is an opportunity for rebirth, it feels daunting. The nights are ever so quiet, stars brightly lighting the pathways of the galaxy.

Winter is inevitable. This is one of the last pictures I took before the snow arrived, it’s presence unwelcome and awkward as it delivered it’s harsh reality. I pass the hours practising music, working intently on my voice. I feel new songs incubating so I carry my notebook everywhere. I catch glimpses of the butterfly, yet the caterpillar is still present, not completely transformed. Life is a series of transitions and and the purpose is the journey which only exists in this moment.

I am setting up for NaNoWriMo once again for the third year in a row. I am not entirely sure what I will write about yet, being a pantser. In other words, flying by the seat of my pants in no uncertain terms. However for the last two years I have succeeded in writing 50,000 words in the month of November and I shall try for 3/3.

Would my time be better spent doing something else? Perhaps, but really, I recently read what I wrote last year, and was startled. What I had written read better after putting it aside for almost a year.

NEW Mural

Mural Testimonial

Our 2018 started off with the most pleasant experience meeting Deborah. We were looking for nursery mural artist in the Calgary area and came across her website. We sent her an e-mail with a summary of the vision for the nursery and she was quick to respond asking if she could some see the space in person. Everyone else we contacted was quick to give a price without much detail or promised to come visit with a quote and never showed up. Deborah came and from the first interaction we knew she was the right person to make our dream come true. She was also great meeting our 2 German Shepherds which would be roaming the home while she would be here painting. Her calm demeanour with them put us at ease and it is always a good sign when your dogs like someone! Deborah took our vision and created the most beautiful, breathtaking, cartoon mural for the nursery. She was even able to incorporate a portrait of our dogs on the wall so that they could form part of the piece and draw a silhouette on the crib so it would blend with the theme of the room. If you are looking for an artist who puts her heart in her work and the results show this, then Deborah is your person. We already have more projects in mind for her so we can incorporate more of her artwork in our home. Even our friends and family back home in Ontario have been left speechless with the results, as we have been showing them pictures, and can’t wait to see the magic in person.
