Vanilla

A crisp new Word document. Chai Latte (homemade). Vanilla and apricot undertones. French Vanilla. Ice Cream with a rich, dark hot chocolate sauce. Real vanilla isn’t white. Bake with the real stuff. I am not entirely sure why Vanilla was on my mind last evening, except to say that I was thinking about the real…

If I was an Ambassador for Canada…

The inequality offset by white privilege had me thinking quite deeply the last several years.  We forget – FOR REAL – that we* are only second, third, fourth generation.  Who arrived before us?  If there is no proof of ownership, it’s… mine?  Yours? It’s ours, this beautiful planet.  And we’ve put it on life support…

The legend … Of the White Raven Is true, but my photo is of a white crow. God bless all of us,   Lisa

Historical Analysis of the Blog

As I prepare to start the next series, I can’t help but look back on this blog.  This start.  This field of dreams in the middle of Nowhere, Internet with my little voice.  There were name changes.  Mood swings.  Meltdowns.  /Rants.  But, even my early stock photos were geared towards this journey. One of the…

The Great Divide

When I look at the continental divides of my generational family, it looks more like the San Andreas Fault rather than the Everything Fits Neatly Into Little Boxes In A Tree fairy tale series I tried to squeeze it into. Those store-bought baby albums didn’t accommodate divorced and remarried grandparents… or any other deviation from…

Whiplash

Are you feeling the whiplashes?  Our eyes, our minds, our hearts, our souls bounce between the Gargoyles in the Catholic church. There is only one way to disrupt an infinite do loop, and God has that power. Line up Evolution with Creation in 2001:  Space Odyssey Then travel to Drumheller to look at ancient dinosaur…

L0VE

Sometimes, there is a love so pure, it transcends space, time and gravity. I love you, too. Dawn

Our Father…

Our Father Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil….

The Heart of Glass

The human heart shattered like Cinderella’s slipper.  She offered it because she had already found timeless peace with the Lord Our Father.  But how long is the wait on earth?  Are we there yet? The End.  

The Calling

It’s out of the blue … yet it isn’t.  You asked, but you completely forgot.  You had to.  Why?  To let go of the preconceived notion of what a bird in my hand means.  That baby would fly.  And that wasn’t The Calling. The Calling was on February 13th, 2020 around 11AMish.  Carly pulled.  I…

My World

Chapter 6 Verse 21 I took the above photo yesterday and asked you what it means to me. It can mean anything to you; artful dried flowers, abject failure, the colours of summer.  In a world where the temperature has just been turned up, giving up.  Resignation.  Defeat.  Or rest, breathe, try again? Do you…

I said I could

… and I did. I’m not quite sure where this is starting, but it isn’t @ 2:22PM today.  It really goes back before the blog – or any form of my blog – existed.  But it was then that I started to capture the story – late 2015 when I first began to connect with…
