I am so fortunate to have been chosen as part of Lisa MacIntosh’s photography series ASK which features women she finds inspiring. I had a glorious sparkly morning posing for photos, and the shot chosen was just a casual moment we shared laughing. Brilliant!
In Lisa’s own words…
“Each and every day I see women – mothers, daughters, sisters and aunts without fame or fortune, commit acts of strength and love that impact people’s lives; unseen and with quiet courage.
Every mother is a working-woman, every daughter a caregiver to someone, every sister a friend, and every grandmother a mentor. With small gestures and sometimes Herculean efforts they change, for the better, the lives around them.
Both the women in the limelight and the women whose names I do not know are the ‘keel’ in the ship of humanity.
My portraits salute those female warriors who went before, are working for the cause of equality and love of community now, and the ‘ordinary’ woman who quietly inspires, engages and is a trailblazer.
And to those they may call ‘ordinary’ as they have neither accolades, medals, or recognition, I say you are: extraordinary!
This is my journey through Asking.”

My friend Christine and I went into the woods with my dad and uncle to see how that sweet golden treat real Canadian maple syrup is made! I’d tell you about it, but my mouth is full, eh! And it’s all in the video right here so you can click on it at your leisure!
A recipe for Maple Syrup:
40 maple trees
Yield: 1 jar of sweet golden bliss and a lot of time to reflect on it.
Thank you for watching, eh!
