Yesterday I took time out to video this Mountain Ash tree. I now have this captured and will enJOY it again and again. I just love nature so much. What about you? Do you take time to see the wonder that nature has to offer? Do you stop to notice the beauty around you?
I highly recommend connecting with natures and with moments like this. It’s very therapeutic and good for the soul.
I snapped this picture the other day using my Samsung Galaxy S8 plus and thought it was just gorgeous!
This picture is the sun setting on Lake Superior in Shuniah township. To the right in the picture is the city of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. Thunder Bay has a population of about 110,000 people and is a nestled in the middle of Canada. It is bordered by Lake Superior, one of the 5 great lakes all of which are freshwater, accounting for 1/5 of the freshwater surface on the planet.
I’ve had people reach out to me about painting this picture and I hope they do! I love that we can share the beauty in the world… and on that note, feel free to share this blog post showing the glorious colours produced by nature’s sunsets in this beautiful part of the world. EnJOY!

I went on a lovely walk this afternoon and found this beauty. It made me beam with pride to be Canadian and looking at this picture I think of “Strong & Free”. The rocks representing the land and beauty that we have that lasts for lifetimes. The maple leaf symbolizing the freedom we have in this country along with a reminder that life is both precious and ever changing…. seasons…. cycles…. and lifetimes.
I hope you all take a moment today to stop and see the beauty in your day and if your life. Life is indeed precious.

I had an AH-MAZING experience today. I was driving down a peaceful road by myself and listening to a song on Sound Cloud sung by my friend Paul Luftenegger called “The Miracle of You” The Miracle of You on Soundcloud
In the middle of the song a bald eagle swooped in front of my windshield and gracefully glided by and then swooped back up into the sky. It was incredible! I saw its entire wing span and all of the colors in it. It was like a intimate encounter with this beautiful bird. I have never been so close to a bald eagle ever like this, and the entire experience seemed divine. It was literally like it was in slow motion even though I was going about 80 km an hour.
I tried to find a picture to depict what it looked like, but I don’t think I would ever be able to find one that could capture what I saw in that divine moment.

The Chopra Centre talks about The Law of Least Effort which states “Nature’s intelligence functions with effortless ease. When you become lighthearted and let go of struggling to force things to go your way, you’ll experience the spontaneous fulfillment of your desires and purpose.”
This is something that can be deeply contemplated but the irony is that it’s all about ease and grace and flow. Just like nature!!! Nature flows and is always beating to its own intuitive drum. Nature does not have to ‘figure anything out’. Nature just is. Nature is Nature being Nature.
What if we let go of some of our resistance that we ourselves create and be more nature like? What if we just put the paddle down and let our canoe turn around and go downstream smoothly and joyously rather than struggling to paddle upstream?
So often we are the ones who create the resistance, the turmoil, the fear.
Today I encourage you to let go, go with the flow, detach from outcome and from expectation. Maybe be like a tree. Hang out and dance to the beat of nature’s wind.

Just this week my friends in Calgary, Alberta got hit hard with a dump of snow that is unusual for this time of year. It seems fall is slipping into winter right before our eyes and without a graceful transition.
When I think of September here in Northwestern Ontario I think of what I like to call ‘the birds of September’. I think of sunny skies and lots of birds chirping and frolicking. This year that did not happen. It was a September with lots of rain and cloud and cool temperatures. But as the old saying goes, “such is life”.
When my friend Darlene posted this picture of her sunrise with the snow, I thought it was both beautiful and breathtaking. I have come to believe that sunsets and sunrises are divine reminders that can strengthen our soul. Everytime we see a sunrise it is confirmation that the sun will rise again. Just like us, we have slips, falls, and pain in life but we can count on the sun rising again and a new day to be had.
Watching the sun rise and set is a powerful way to ground yourself in the trust of a new day.
I encourage everyone to see as many sunsets and sunrises as they can and each time you do watch it like it is both your first and last time. There lies the magic.

It was a beautiful day today and I went for a walk. We have had a long and cold and snowy winter. This is the first beautiful spring day we’ve had. The sun is shining and it is so glorious.
While walking along a river bank lo and behold there 14 turtles sunbathing on a log. It was amazing to see and was enjoyed by myself and a few passerbys, in particular a young boy and it was thrilling for him. The best part was I later discovered today is World Turtle Day!!!!
