Contentment: A Contrast
I missed my New Years post this year. The truth is I wasn’t quite sure how to write it. This year has brought more evolutions than one shift in calendar years can reflect. I suppose that it reflects the turning of a century more than ever. Last I wrote I spoke to creating space for…
So here we are.
“So here we are, in our rags, walking down a road we’ve never seen before with the mark of our wild nature glowing through us. It is fair to say that conjunctio is insisting on a revision of the old you. Conjunctio is not something that goes out and gets. It is something that occurs…
It’s the season for retreating for many of us. This time of year I am systemically faced with the culmination of the year’s deeper meaning. Most years a lot of things bubble up to the surface around November and December- leaving me a little raw and cracked open come the end of the year. I…
The here and now.
I officially graduated this past week, and it was more emotional then I thought it would be. I’ve been operating under the assumption that I’d already completed my degree for a while now, so convocation was just the official handing of the paper.

Intention and the questions no-one can answer

Driving in White Out Conditions
The usual driving condition for those of us living on the cold, wide-open, wind blown prairies during the winter months.. could it be a metaphor for life? In the last few weeks I’ve found myself feeling emotions I don’t know if I have felt much before, going through a few personal stressors that both surprised…
This past weekend I went back to my roots for the charmin’ Carman Country Fair, taking Felix (The Rio Zipper), through his paces in some pleasure classes. I haven’t shown there, or at any Country Fair in a few years- the hunter/jumper world kind of kidnapped me and wouldn’t let go. It was kind of…
A Flash In Time
I’ve always held the belief that we learn from every experience. From every person we meet; coaches, friends, family, teachers, to every sight we see; a busy cross walk, a sunrise, rush hour. Sometimes it takes some tough love from the universe for things to sink in. Sometimes it takes years to find what we…
