Upon delving into a good book, I immediately enter into a relationship with the author, the characters, and the story. Each love affair is unique. I often find myself embedded in the world the author has created.

    My heart rarely beats faster than in the first moment I walk into a bookstore. As I take a couple steps passed the entrance, I stop to look around, breath in, and smile. My senses are heightened, my mind is clear, and I feel at peace.

    My adoration of bridges follows suit. Living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has sparked my appreciation for these beautiful pieces of architecture. To me, stepping onto a bridge evokes a sense of freedom. A bridge can symbolize the choice to cross over to a new era, to take on a new adventure, or to strive for a new circumstance.

    Whether it is a book, a movie, a collection of music, et cetera, I aspire to share my take on the pieces of work I encounter. I hope you enjoy what my site has to offer as I'll use it to share reviews and my views.

Is Your Dog Smarter Than You?

My brain was as foggy as the thick veil in front of the moon tonight.

The dogs decided they better take me for a walk, with the weather above zero not something I’d want to miss. They were right – I did enjoy the fresh air and appreciated how the breeze gently brought a rose to my cheeks.

As we trotted on, I kept thinking that perhaps we should just turn around and go home, but they seemed to know better. They kept pulling; it annoyed me, but finally I surrendered. Apparently that was the point… because as soon as I released my expectations for this walk – for this day – to go a certain way, it then began to be what it was meant to be.

Upon my full surrender, the dogs relinquished control, and we calmly sauntered back home together. Acey kept looking up at me with a big smile, satisfied with what he had taught me. I chuckled to myself as I imagined his doggo thoughts, “Silly Mom. Life’s simple, really.”
