How To Be Inconsistent And Successful

Have you ever felt bad about being inconsistent? Conversely, have you tried hard to be consistent? Perhaps in your workouts, your eating habits, your money habits or your work schedule? Maybe you've followed the self-help gurus out there that say that to be successful, you must “set your goals,” “focus on one thing at a time,” or “create a to-do list” and follow it? Seriously, has any [...]

We Forgot the Most Important Tool!

We left Legendary Waters and drove on toward Munising -  the home stretch has begun! The internet wasn't available, we hadn't booked a campsite ahead because up until today, campgrounds were everywhere. Now when we needed one, there was NOTHING in sight. It would be dark soon. Arguing with each other, I drove off the road to chill out by the Lake. It was a surprisingly beautiful spot, from which [...]

Thunder Bay KOA – Being Unstoppable Looks Different Sometimes

One night. Great dog park. So happy to leave the next morning & proud that we got ready with such prowess. I even cleaned all the bugs and guck off the Airstream windows, so we were all shiny, bright and eager to move on! We did. And one of the stabilizing jacks was still stabilizing while we drove away and heard this twisting metal sound. Yup, Stabilizing Jack [...]

A Very Bad Day

One day was just kinda creepy and nothing flowed. We drove repeatedly to several dead end spots, locking ourselves into interesting places where turning a 25' trailer around was difficult. One place was a canyon I wanted to visit. But on the drive, there were no signs, no apparent exits to take. We kept seeing Las Vegas-feel type signs for a zip lining place, but we weren't in [...]

Baptized By Black Flies

After teaching classes in Sudbury we pulled our Airstream Serenity trailer up to a sweet spot near Blind River, Ontario, at Lake Lauzon Resort and Marine. That night we were attacked by swarms of black flies while taking the dogs for an evening walk! Unbeknownst to us they were the notorious black flies who inject you with some kind of anaesthetic, so you don't feel their pokes & then [...]

Tight But Loose – Lessons From The Dance Floor

Tight But Loose. Huh? No, we’re not talking about your booty or your thighs! Tight But Loose is a principle in the Nia® dance/fitness program I trained in for many years. It’s about being intimate with the  music. It’s about knowing your choreography inside and out. So that during the dance, you are creating from a space of play and possibility in the moment. In essence you know [...]

Nia Ga Kool – The Key to Letting Go

Present time bloodshot eye I’m looking in the mirror where I see my left cornea full of blood - a burst blood vessel, my eye doctor tells me. I didn’t sneeze, I didn’t cough, or do anything out of the ordinary that would have caused it. Shouldn't eye know what caused it? Flashback to another bloodshot eye and the start of Nia ga kool After all, the [...]

Got Crow’s Feet? Cougar Spots? Camel Toe?

Have you ever heard of or used any of these terms to describe your body? What do those short phrases conjure up in your mind’s eye? Even more, what do they create energetically with your body?  For example, the first time I had “camel toe” explained to me was a revelation, to be sure. Yeah, I was cool, I heard that phrase now and then, but never [...]

A Delicious Possibility

It was during an evening meal several years ago that would show me a delicious possibility that I wasn’t quite ready for, yet you can rest assured, I am now. My  partner Sabine and I, had been working all day and were hungrily searching dinner options that evening. We'd been eating out a lot recently, with all the best intentions to cook, but alas, the fridge was [...]
