It’s raining!

I don’t know about you, but those of us in the northwestern part of Canada are celebrating. Every year it gets hotter and drier and the earth is aging seemingly before our eyes.

It was always a dream for DH and I to move to Vancouver Island. We came here on our honeymoon and every year after that we could afford the trip. I craved the beautiful cedars, rhododendrons, ivy, and ferns. The lush greenness of the rainforest, the scent of the ocean on the air, the slap of the waves upon the shore… I could go on and on, lol.

Thirty years later we made the move and it was just as amazing as we remembered!

I’ve made new friends, explored this magical place I’m blessed to call home, and learned to feel the pulse of the land.

And it worries me.

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines with the theme CHOKE for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


I invited her out to dinner and put the ring in a glass of champagne. Problem is, she choked on the damn thing and they had to call the paramedics.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


“Wow,” I choked, “you guys must have done really well. You both smell like cat food.”

Claire Gem


He took her face between his hands, threading his fingers into her hair, and she choked back a sob. How long since he’d touched her this way?

Kathryn Jane


Elise came awake choking on gasoline fumes, disoriented by the sweet maple syrup scent of antifreeze.

A Twisted Fate (work in progress)


She twisted her wine glass. “He said his name was Ray Holland.” Jim choked on a bite of sandwich and grabbed for the bottle.

Marsha West


A huge push…

Wow! What’s Mother Nature so angry about? The last post I wrote on Aug. 30 was about Hurricane Harvey hitting the Gulf Coast of Texas.  Now here we are not quite two weeks later and Hurricane Irma has torn up the Caribbean and the entire state of Florida, followed close on its heels by Jose and then Katia. That doesn’t even mention the category 8 earthquake in Mexico, or the never ending horrific fires engulfing our friends in Western Canada and the US. Whew! 2017 will be in the record books for sure, but not in a good way.

Can we just go back to watching Disaster Movies instead of experiencing them?

I do realize this is hurricane season, and it’s common to have a number of them hurling themselves around, but WOW! This is bizarre and scary.

(And yesterday was September 11 and the 16th anniversary of…

#OneLineSunday by #RSsos Lines about a SNORT for a great start to the week. Enjoy!


Matt grinned. “What do you take me for? I’m not that type of guy.” She snorted. “You’re all that type of guy.”

Jacquie Biggar


The deputy was clearly intimidated by the angry firefighter. With a snort, he opened the door and she slipped through.

Sam Bradley w/a McKenna Sinclair


When the mare turned away again and realized she was cornered, she snorted, spun, and squared off against the woman standing between her and escape.

Kathryn Jane


“Sending her yellow roses with a card saying he’s her biggest fan,” Josh told Jack. “Humph.” The mayor snorted. “That all? That’s nothing.”

Marsha West


Rafe’s father snorted and rocked back on his heels, watching, waiting. Probably for the apology he wasn’t going to get.

“Somewhere, out there, is the perfect retail job.” I…

sisterhood of suspense

By Kathryn Jane

 Here most of us sit in front of our monitors and televisions, watching disasters unfold, and what I’m seeing time after time, in spite of the horrible click-bait type of headlines, is Kindness!

 I’m seeing:

 People of all races, ethnic backgrounds, and stages of financial security helping each other.

 Posts of gratitude by those reasonably well off, who have been hit by Hurricane Harvey just the same way the poor were hit

 People regardless of socio-economic background gobsmacked by the kindness offered them by fellow human beings.

 Video footage of men and women reaching out to each other in a time of need.

 Groups, whole groups of people hooking up their expensive hauling rigs and driving INTO the fire zones to rescue horses and pigs and llamas and any other critter who needs a ride out before the flames wipe…

Ease, Joy and Glory

The first time I heard the mantra of Access, I wanted to KILL!

There was this small ad in the local paper that read: “All of Life Comes To Me with Ease and Joy and Glory. Call Shannon”

I just wanted to tear the newspaper apart — Ease, Joy and Glory!?!? My life seemed to be everything BUT that. Argh!

Anyhow, I had learned that when I resisted something that much, there was always a possibility for greater beyond it.

So I did call. And that was the start of a journey that has changed my whole life…

Here is the thing: Along the way, I seemed to have forgotten how powerful that mantra really is.

Would you be willing to come along to Santa Barbara and let yourself be re-introduced to these 12 words?

Please know, the three first words are crucial: All. Of. Life. 

EVERYTHING — the good…
