My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.


Still travelling….

By way of an update from my earlier holiday/moving post below.

We are still “in transit” right now but leaning towards Alberta as being our new home province, at least for now.

We had hoped to spend some time in Mexico before making a firm decision, but with all the upheaval and violence down South, it didn’t seem like the right place to be, even for a visit.

My heart goes out to the people of Mexico. It’s time for that awful cartel situation to end, once and for all. They’ve apparently made big progress in Columbia in that regard; I hope it is Mexico’s turn next.

I will post more when we do get settled. For now, enjoying some new places, people to meet and of course, lots of snow!!! Love it.

Stay warm and Happy February.❤



Happy Autumn! My Fav Time of Year

Autumn, my fav time of year is finally on the way, after another VERY dry summer here on Vancouver Island.

The air is cooler at night already (back to deep sleeping!!) and hopefully some much needed rain will finally be on the way soon.

I am adding some new Autumn Kindle book promos at my writing site today too. Click here for all the details.

Happy Autumn, Reading and Cooking Too!


Happy Summer, Trails and Reading!

Such good advice!

Also reminds me of another favorite quote: “Don’t tell me about what you are going to do, tell me about what you’ve done“.

Can’t you just smell these lovely lilacs? One of my favorite flowers. They last such a short time but when they are in bloom, it is impossible for me to pass any of them by, without a long sniff of their amazing fragrance.

Busy, busy here with a big move in the works. And fingers-crossed that Trudeau doesn’t fail us vaccine- free Canadian citizens once again. Apparently an announcement re: the end to air travel restrictions is forthcoming sometime today. Here’s hoping that this time it’s finally over and that 6 million of us can once again feel FREE.

In the meantime, hope you’ll check out my newest Kindle book promotions for summer:


Including a variety of genres: my two self-help titles, groovy slow cooking for hassle- free meal prep when hot weather looms and poetry to soothe the soul.

A Winter Haiku and Seasons Greetings!

Hello again !

If anyone is still stopping by at my WP blogs, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year. We have all earned it, after the last two extremely difficult years, throughout the world.

I have been keeping busy with a variety of creative projects, including getting back to writing after a (too) long hiatus. Always my best, most positive and productive strategy when it comes to coping with stress.

You can read more about my latest Kindle eBook: “Regrets: I’ve Had (Quite) a Few” available in January and a couple of holiday treats to share with you at my other WP blog, Veggies, Yarns & Tails: click here.

I Wish You Peace, Prosperity and All the Good Things in 2022!

A Time to Hope and Reflect….


Wishing you and your family a MUCH better year in 2021.

I hope you will stop by my author’s site and Veggies, Yarns & Tails too, for some additional holiday greetings and my current Amazon Kindle promotions.

This has been a good year to catch up on reading, in spite of all the challenges! 😉

Take care, stay safe, be well.

PS: If anyone can enlighten me where to find the option to change the default page text color here at WP now, I would be oh so grateful. Posting here has become one big hassle. 😦
