If all else fails
Find a small dog
And speak a high pitched language with it”

11.22.20 — 200 hour yoga teacher training graduation day. Lulu also receiving a certificate 😭 😭 What an experience. What a year. Thank you to our lead instructor Ning Gao + to my small (but very mighty) cohort for everything @yogaandbeyondyyc ...

Early morning line edits again today... in my new writing nook (enclosed with drywall and a door!) All the furniture came from neighbours in below unit as they redesign their own place. Feels like a private café without having to leave the building #ARoomOfMyOwn #AmWriting ...

I may not be managing a room of 200 ppl tonight for this year’s virtual @gillerlightbash #yyc — but we dressed up anyway! Thank you @alanabeauty.yyc & @butterbeautyparlouryyc + to @pbr.mami for the photo. Soon I will be able to share how much we raised for @frontiercollege literacy programs — & how this support is used to change lives. Thank you to all silent auction donors, guests who bid on items and to our five amazing book defenders / shout out to Anne Logan @ivereadthis who represented AB ♥️ ...

Just delivered first commissioned magazine article in over a year 🥂 ...

My spidey senses are tingling! #halloween ...

The WGA will host a webinar this Saturday (Oct 17) at 10 a.m. on WRITING WHO YOU DON'T KNOW led by author Sharon Bala. This workshop will address how to most effectively write from outside our own experience. Specifically: how do we create characters whose skin colour, ethnicity, sexuality, and/or gender are not our own? How do we ensure the characters ring true? Sharon Bala will talk about dangerous tropes, how to avoid them, the importance of research and ask some crucial questions: why do you want to tell this story, and are you equipped for the job? For more info visit @writersguildab and click link in bio.

“At no other time does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke 🍂 #Transitions #FallEquinox #2020 ...

“Life begins with nothing material and ends with nothing material. The joy of acquiring friends, sharing, learning, yields the greatest gifts of all. Those gifts follow us through eternity.” — Ning Gao @yogaandbeyondyyc ...
