Mary and Devotion

Over the last couple of years I’ve been drawn to Mary. Being raised atheist, it wasn’t something I looked for and I understand that Mary can bring up a lot for people. I don’t go to church but I do sit in churches when they’re not in service. I’m so drawn to sacred spaces. I talked to my mom about…

After the Cat Fights: Finding Stillness & Visions

This morning, I’m sitting by the fire and it’s quiet! Stacy and I spent most of the day yesterday putting the house back together after a week of photo shoots and cat fights. The cats are sleeping and I feel the tension start to lift as The Japanese House plays my favourite song, “Face Like Thunder” over our recycled bamboo Bluetooth speaker.…

Prayer For Writers

May the writing come. May I let my life onto the page. May I let my voice be what it is. May I let my life be what it is. May it heal the heart. May it be raw knowing I am safe in my own power. May I let it go. May I understand I’m not the holder of…

Warrior of the Heart

In light of remembering the impermanence of life, I wanted to share some of my thoughts. I’m realizing there’s just no time to do anything but love one another. I know that that’s really challenging right now and loving one another can look like so many different things. It can look like taking action to protect the marginalized. You know,…

5 Things

1. Theatre. I took voice lessons in high school but never made it out of the chorus. Found my love in theatre 🎭 with Stage Managing. I learned from professionals when I was 15 and almost got an agent but my mother wouldn’t let me 😭 In my twenties I co-cofounded a summer Shakespeare in the Park theatre company in…

If You Are Afraid: Shine More

Putting yourself out there isn’t easy. It can bring up a lot of fear. At least it has for me. And when you’re highly sensitive it can all feel too much at times. Like there’s nowhere stand. There are grown up blanket forts for a reason! And it’s important to keep shining, lovely one. Don’t let the fear of what…

Sacred Restraint

This week I wrote a post that had been wanting to be birthed for 15 months and I choose not to share it. It turned into pages and pages and could have easily gone on my blog. It felt powerful to write it, I gained so much clarity and strength for myself around an issue that had been taking up…

I Will Not Betray Myself

When I first started practicing Buddhism, I became acutely aware that life is precious and you never know how long you have. To me, this means, I have a responsibility to live and love to my fullest, live without regret, and be able to recognize myself in the mirror. When I’m not betraying myself I also set the intention to…

May I Make Art

May I make art. May it heal and be of true service. May the stars, the moons, the planets and the earth be what steadies and holds me. May I not be afraid to journey to the underworld. Willingly offering myself to the altar of transformation. May it be okay for me to not come back the same way I…

Hold the Post

I’m sitting here at the end of the day as the rain beats on my windows and the wind howls outside. Tonight the house will shake and we’re just lucky we don’t live in the Highlands because they’re getting a LOT of snow tonight. I live in a town called Glace Bay, which means Ice Bay. In April the ocean fills…
