Tell me a story is what I say instead of “Hi, how are you?” My friend finally understood what I mean and how important story telling is when he attended the Toastmaster International 2017 held in Vancouver last week. Toastmaster is … Continue reading

There is us. There is them. There is We. All that we share.

Video

There are those we share something with
There are those we don’t share anything with
And then something,
There is us.

A question. Answer it honestly.

We who are brokenhearted
We who are madly in love
We who feel lonely …

We who acknowledge the courage of others
We who have found the meaning of life
We who have saved lives.

Then there is all of us.

Filling the hole in our heart.

Trout Lake Circa January 14, 2017

Video

Spinning myself around 360 degrees to get a full recording of my favorite place, Trout Lake, a place where I grew up with fond memories.

It was more than 20 years since the lake froze. The ambiance? Refreshing!

With all kinds of people, nationality, ethnic language, 4-year family generation and a baby on the way; I would have wanted to use the music “Of Foreign Lands and Places”. We were all in the same place at the same time to experience joie de vi·vre.

Ah … such glorious memory.

Walking on the frozen lake feels surreal.
