Time Lapse

baby has been a blessing and I've tried to keep what makes me me alive. When everyone says your life will change completely you don't really understand until it happens to you.

Baby has brought more smiles and joy into our home than we thought possible. I miss my horses every day - tears happen in quiet times when I miss their kisses and feel the emptiness in my heart that used to explode when I was with them.

The sun shines a hundred times more here than Vancouver. But we still miss Vancouver... and the ocean, the mountains, the beach, the seafood, the sushi, our friends, our family. 

We are prairie people now though. Wide open spaces.

it has been a little while

I've made the move - my life has officially taken a step.

I was playing the waiting game for so long and now I'm officially in cowboy country. Small town Alberta is much different from Vancouver... even though Edmonton is an arm's reach, it is a different animal from Vancouver too.

When we packed up the truck, it was the beginning of a Vancouver fall. We were thrown into an Alberta winter - snow, snow and more snow. The air cuts your lungs with every breath and my nose and cheeks get rosy by the end of my dog walks. But there's none of the chill-you-to-the-bone rain that I always said I didn't mind but right now I'm not missing. The dogs sure love the snow too! Every day at the park they chase each other, bounding through the snow like deer.


mid-west kind of daydream

"The special area of my soul where those songs graze like buffalo. The herd is still there, and the plains are endless."

ahhhh Neil Young is so talented that his book makes me want to barf
