All Overnight☀️💭🙄⏳…..

I was meaning to post this blog earlier last month, it seems as though time is whipping by and we’re trapped in an hourglass…

I walked outside in the afternoon, to what felt like a different country. It was as if summer literally arrived overnight, the tempermental weather finally chose summer!
Overnight it seems as though the virus has disappeared, and is no longer crippling our lives. I walked outside in the afternoon, to what felt like a different country. Folks strolling by were wearing shorts  and t-shirts, and most definitely were not  wearing masks!
I was happy to see and feel the sun, not covered by clouds, pure sunshine, bright and warm! It’s about time that my body gets a nice dose of vitamin D, but it sucks that I’ll still need to wear a mask…I really need to breathe some fresh air, and soak up a little sun before it goes away!
Okay, so the majority of pedestrians are not wearing masks. I’m not one to follow the crowd, but I want to make sure before I walk any further, I am prepared. I want to make sure I am allowed to enter the businesses that I need to go to. I don’t know if the rules for masks have changed because there hasn’t been any new announcements.
The question is, to mask, or not to mask?
I need to breathe, so I’ll walk without wearing one, for once, and do my best to “social distance”. I’ll try my best to avoid crowds as usual. Thank God everyone is pretty polite around here, we’re all staying out of each other’s way. We’re all trying to take advantage of this beautiful weather. Look at how happy those children are riding their bikes! Some folks are even trying to catch a tan, as though the sun will never come back out again.

Collectively we’re over it, the news said the virus can survive in hot weather. I know I’m not the only one who is questioning what is really going on???
No conspiracy theories, just simple observations.
We only get about three months of summer out of the year, and we’ve had autumn-like temperatures in between. It doesn’t feel natural, there is no balance.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it hailed tomorrow, but I would be happy to see tomorrow.

Take Care, Stay safe, and Stay tuned.

Love and Respect,

It’s a New Year! I’m back…..

My favourite place to be on New Year’s Eve is at home safe and sound. I’m satisfied simply watching a movie, surrounded by loved ones, or by myself. Happy to have got through another year, I’m in one piece, and as healthy as I can be. A year ago today, I was recovering from an accident that left my face battered, cut, swollen, and scrapped. I had a broken nose to boot, and all I could do is apply ice to my face, rest and hope for the best…..

Hi! Happy Belated New Year, I hope that your year is off to a productive start. I have neglected my blog which I feel guilty about, but I’m ALWAYS writing and creating. There’s another side to my writing that I have not mentioned on my blog before, my music. I’m a singer, always been, but haven’t shared my work online with the public because it wasn’t the time. Now I’m ready to open up and share more of me. I’ve been writing, re-writing, composing with a pianist, and trying to keep my vocals warm in this chilly weather. It feels good to work on what I’m truly passionate about.

Last year ended on a good note, and I had to accept that, instead of focusing on the”bad” things that happened. It didn’t tarnish all that I accomplished in 2018. I was and am still trying to find my place here in Toronto, literally and figuratively, but I had to change my approach. I was inspired through a conversation with a tipsy co-worker at an office Christmas dinner. With a sober ear, he told me not to worry about finding a place in the city, as he was in the same predicament. He said to simply keep an eye out, but don’t worry about it, something will come along. I took his advice, I decided to stop sweating it.

A new job, new commute, office relocation, and major unexpected negative changes to my living environment put me to the test. I didn’t expect life to throw me so many positive and negative changes all at once. Improving at adjusting and adapting to curve balls and changes without worry, pretty much sums up 2018. I think I’m off to pretty good start, and I hope you are too!
