Live Dangerously

IMG_0160

I am daringly inspired by this perspective of living dangerously!

A view brought to me by my dear artist friend and fellow writer,

Gordon Hays who has his own radio show called, “The Good Life with Gordon”.

Recently on his show, he discussed how you can choose to “live dangerously by putting yourself out there…

By finding ways to express yourself creatively.”
With passion.

I have come to know that your purpose is your passion.
It is your calling.

That which you find yourselves totally, utterly and completely immersed in.
That which you lose yourself in creatively.

For me it is writing!

What is your passion?
What makes you come alive?

To live dangerously…

May be threatening to others who are comfortable with who you are now.
When you change they may either be inspired by you or perhaps threatened.

Danger presents risks. Uncertainty. New Possibilities.
It is a bit wild. But don’t we all have a wild side within us?

High Five to living a dangerous life!”

Journey of Writing

IMG_5791

Te’ invites you, to journey with her as she writes her first book, a memoir “High Five to Triumph!” It is her hope that you will listen to your own soul speak as you read the stories of her life. Perhaps along the way, you will remember a few stories of your own. May this be an inspiration to “let your dreams take flight!”

Many of us hold onto our dreams and never set them free to be out in the universe. We all can experience daily triumph in our lives by how we bless and celebrate our experiences. An acknowledgement of the Divine within.

Why is it so challenging to see your life as a daily triumph? The simple response is that we think we have to accomplish something really big. Climb the tallest mountain. Run the fastest race. Paint the greatest masterpiece. It really is a matter of perception.

I hope that your new year is bringing you great joy & Triumph!

Cheers to You!

Wizard Writing!

Te' Writer PictureI am always writing about writing and am blessed to be able to share with you. Thank

you for your gracious presence in my life.

Writing to me is a form of meditation. A prayer of gratitude.
A place to express myself. A place to be with my thoughts.

In the years that I have written I have come to know…
Writing is more about listening to what one is saying to oneself.

It is a gift in my life that I am greatly honoured to create & evolve into. May you too be inspired to be your own “writing wizard!”

Cheers to You!

Let’s Play!

Let’s Play You & I
where the river runs free.

Let’s Play under a foggy sky
where the mist hovers.

Let’s Play & dance as if
we are fairies with golden wings!

Let’s Play & create magic
knowing we are artists.

Let’s Play You & I
and laugh ourselves silly!

Let’s Play & let go
of all the sadness.

Let’s Play & remember
our joy!

Triumph of Determination!


Four eagles circled and soared over her head as she walked along the river’s edge as one of her fellow river warriors was passing…

P1050238

She learned of Clyde’s passing four days later.
As grief and disbelief led her to share the sad news.
His family was already cleaning out his home.

Would love find them amidst the unanswered questions?

The shock wearing thin over the stretch of the holidays.
A time of sadness and seemingly untouchable joy.
A season where loss is often felt as greatly if not more than celebrating.

He rode his bike for the last eleven years that she had walked along the river’s edge.

Periodically he would stop and stretch.
His muscles that would never bend and flex.
His strength that would never be as strong.

His wild appearance. His wave. His grin. His greeting carried across the river path.

He rode most days with an open shirt, its tails flying in the wind.
A single string across his bare chest holding his shirt together.
But when he smiled all barriers slipped away.

Clyde was his own individual. Original. Guarded “Enigmatic”. Admirable. Determined.

His feet covered with plastic bags in the winter.
His bandana. His long grey hair.
His quick wit and short direct statements.

We will grieve our fellow warrior as we honour his memory.

In the darkest sorrow. We all wonder how he lived.
Why do we ask this now?
A question of regret for not knowing more about this fellow river warrior.

What was his story?
His family? His friends?
His life beyond the river’s edge…

Many thought that he was a veteran of war.
He had unseen battle scars from loosing his sense of family. His “farm” as he called it.
His freedom to move without chronic pain from an unknown injury.

She would never forget his compassion.

He got off his bike one spring morning and offered her his help.
With an outstretched arm he handed her his card with his name and number printed.
“If you need my help, Te’, let me know.”He grinned mischievously. “I clean up pretty good!”

She always felt safer knowing he was out along the river’s edge no matter the weather.
He was like a beacon of some refrained strength.
His silence spoken louder than most of our words exchanged.

Clyde will forever be remembered. Missed and daily revered.
It is an honour to have witnessed his spirit of unfailing determination and courage.
Blessings to his dear family, friends and fellow river warriors as eagles soar!

Cheers to you Clyde, my “hero” and fellow river warrior!
