The Water and the Sun (revisited)

This is a blog post that I wrote last year, but the message definitely deserves to be sent out again!Recently I had the opportunity to attend an “Employment and Education Symposium”. It was an event to recognize local businesses and individuals who truly were making a difference in furthering the interests of people with all abilities. Awards were given to different individuals, but there was person by the name of Derek Lewis, founder of Red Arrow Digital College, who really stood out for me.In…See More

Why am I doing this again?

As I sit here this morning, I eye the clock waiting for when it's time to leave, to head over to the Bluenose Marathon. Let me first point out that I am NOT a runner, by any stretch of the imagination, but I do enjoy being in the Bluenose. I love the crowds and the feeling of accomplishment and the medal doesn't hurt either!For the last three years, I've ran the 5K and my accomplishment has come in the fact that each year I managed to run the whole way without stopping. Which for me, is…See More

So, apparantly I can't go shoe shopping anymore!

(First, my apologies for my long absence from the blog! What can I say, work has been killer busy but I promise to try and do better!!)Do you ever notice how people always seem to want to “fix you”? This makeup will hide your skin imperfections, these pants will hide your stomach, contacts will hide the fact you need glasses… the list goes on and on. Somewhere along the way what has become socially acceptable is to make yourself look like everyone else. Why is this?This month I will be…See More

White Cane Week

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the White Cane Week kickoff for the CCB. For those who aren’t aware of what this is, White Cane Week is the first week of February, which is set aside to bring awareness to what the white cane stands for… people who are visually impaired.In 1921, a photographer named James Biggs, of Bristol, England, was blinded in an accident. Released from hospital, he had the idea of painting his cane white so it could be easily seen at night. The advantages of the…See More

Haiti

I have spent a great deal of time, along with the rest of the world, watching the events unfold in Haiti since the Earthquake. This tragedy has, more than anything, truly brought the world together for a common purpose. Although countries separate us, it has reminded everyone that in our hearts we are all part of the same human race.The images that play across CNN are horrific and heartbreaking, but I make it a point of tuning in at least for a half hour each evening to stay up to date on the…See More

The White Dog and the Black Dog

One of my favourite stories has always been the Indian Proverb of the White Dog and the Black Dog. According to the story, within all of us is a white dog, signifying good, and a black dog, signifying bad. The person we become is dependent on which dog we choose to feed. For instance, if we live a good life, try to help others, and be honest, through our actions we are “feeding” the white dog, and that is the dog that becomes stronger. Alternatively, if we lie, cheat and steal these actions…See More

Double Take

I was incredibly excited to dive into a book called “Double Take”, written by Kevin Connolly. I first learned of this book through one of the members of Our Town Earth, who had brought to my attention The Rolling Exhibition . It is a series of photographs taken by Kevin Connolly across 15 countries. The book itself offers insight as to why Kevin set out on this amazing…See More

Life Creates Art

I recently had the “pleasure” of reading Gary Milner’s book “The Courage to Go On”. I put “pleasure” in parenthesis, because although the book is beautifully written and Gary penned some amazing poetry at the end of it, the story itself is very difficult to read. Gary talks in great detail about the abuse he endured as a child, and how it carried through for him into adulthood, influencing decisions he made through his life. It very clearly demonstrates the “cycle of abuse” that so many…See More

David Carter: A Painter with Heart

There are studios all over the world, housing the most expressive creations by a wide range of artists. Artists reflect the diversity of the population, drawing on inspiration from thoughts, feelings and the world around them. This is not a revelation. What is amazing, however, is to find an impressive art studio right in the heart of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.In 1983, at the age of 45, David sustained two heart attacks and two strokes in the same day, which left him with quadriplegia.For 10 years…See More

Let's all become Ability Blind

As you can tell I’ve been on a reading binge as of late! We had quite a snow storm here and for me, there is nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book when the weather outside is frightful. And WHAT a book did I curl up with this last time! “My Multiple Sclerosis Adventure” is written by Jamie Keith, and through a combination of Poetry and Prose, Jamie walks us through his life and through his journey with MS.Jamie was diagnosed with MS at the age of 24, but began…See More

Perspectives on Me

I’ve sprained my ankle. Alot. I’ve sprained my ankle more times than I can keep track of. I’ve sprained both several times, but my left one WAY more than my right.When I was 14, I was in Taekwondo, a sport I absolutely loved and threw myself completely into. I was at an extra Monday night practice when I first snapped my left ankle. Bad. So bad, in fact, that I can still vividly remember it-the kick I was doing, how much air I got… and the sound when I came down.I was in an air splint and…See More

A Measure of Heart

Donald House is a gentleman I have had the great pleasure to meet on Our Town Earth. Donald is the President of H.I.R.O.S, Head Injury Recovery Outreach Society.When he was younger, Donald was happily married with two daughters, four years apart in age. He was in the military, and although originally a Maritimer (that would be Eastern Canada for you non-Canadians!) he was stationed out West.While there, Donald sustained a traumatic brain…See More
