Colourize your world

Purple rocks tooMake a statement. Go wild. Have fun. Colour your hair. Paint your lips. Go GaGa.

Be crazy. Try new things. Try new thinks.

Dance naked. Dance clothed. Dance around in circles. Dance with yourself. Dance in groups. Dance in pairs. Dance inside and out. Dance randomly. Wherever. Whenever. Why-ever. Woot!

Do it. Do it. Do it. Do. It. Life is short. Colourize your world!

P.S. Purple streaks by Colour.Bug, which also comes in #PINK, coral and neon green 🙂


On ex-cars & ex-husbands

Note: At the start of our weekly writing group meetings, we do a five-minute warm-up    exercise based on a prompt. The prompt for this one was “I hated it because it was new.”

Pink convertible car“I hated it because it was new” is a particularly uninspiring prompt for me this morning, mostly because I don’t recall ever hating anything new.

5 Steps to Success When Things Seem Impossible

She Bear 1 Inspiration lands in my inbox every day, sometimes in the form of images like the ones in this post.

I have no way of knowing who took the pics, when, or where (despite having searched the Internet for clues).

Though I’ve failed (so far) to find the source of these amazing photographs, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity of using them to talk about success. Read More…

Quick & easy roasted honey lemon almonds

When I lived in the United Arab Emirates, which I did for 18 years, I adored the huge variety of coffees, nuts, spices and olives I could get in bulk just about anywhere. The selection here in Canada, in contrast, is less than stellar.

Go nuts. Repeat.The other week, I had a craving for roasted almonds with honey and lemon. Clearly I wasn’t going to find any at Loblaws, IGA, or the local the ‘depanneur’ (that’s a corner store Quebec-style).

Still, it does get about 20,000 unique visits a month, has an associated Facebook page with close to 40,000 fans, a Twitter account with about 15,000 followers and several other loosely linked accounts including a YouTube channel, as well as SheQuotes, FindingPINK and WhatLifeIs, which also all have their own Facebook pages and Twitter accounts. Wow.  I didn’t realize how overwhelmed I was, until I listed all that stuff!

Men Speak a Language All Their Own

Twin Boys talkingThey say women and men speak different languages.

That may be true.

They say women talk more than men.

That’s definitely not.

Another thing for sure: men speak a language all their own. (Maybe women do too.)

The fact that male mumbo jumbo starts at a very, very early age is clearly demonstrated by this 86-million-views-so-far YouTube video of twin boys captured by their Mom having a conversation in the kitchen (enjoy LOL): Read More…
