Happy Dance-s!

I love it when I’m happy! Don’t you? Don’t we all?! Well, do you ever do an 'anchor' (based on neurolinguistic programming) or a happy dance when you are? I do and I did twice - wow! - almost two months ago already!

I discovered via email that I received a praiseworthy comment from my original vision therapist, Roberto Kaplan ( and on a blog posting that I had written the day before. He wrote a comment that both tickled and humbled me: “You are a natural. I want you to write for me” about Part 2: The Call to Write that I wrote May 31st.

I was extremely happy and excited about his comment as I had wanted to write for him and had even mentioned that to him last year when we reunited after a number of years.

Anyway, it was cool – and IS cool – to receive positive feedback!

As I referred to in that particular posting, Baljit Rayat ( - an intuitive ‘soul coach’ as I would call her – informed me or strongly implied that I am a writer and though I didn’t believe that piece of news at first, I am beginning to more so now. That is what that May 31st posting detailed.

The second time I did my happy anchor and my crazy/silly, happy dance was when I received a call from a woman where I volunteer part-time. She informed me that I could work part-time on an as-needed basis when the other woman didn’t show up. This was to be occasional, but that was still good news as I knew that I might be going on strike (with the union employees) at my full-time job.

So, tell me, how do you celebrate or recognize good news when you receive it?

Happy (1-Year) Anniversary!

It's been a year since I first created this blog and wrote my first posting!

If you read the first two postings, you may know that I started this blog in part to inform people of my dream to direct a non-traditional children's choir. Though it has morphed over time, it was originally meant to give people a sense of me (as I didn't have a website and still don't), and some ideas or reasons for this choir.

The pictures above are part of the advertisements I posted and/or handed out. I created the first, a simple flyer - you only see about half of it here - while a former colleague created the second, where you see all but the contact details. With its bright vivid colours it certainly drew attention and still does: there is at least one place that still has the poster! ; )

It is still a dream of mine as I was in the works - and close - to manifesting it last year. I plan to work on a proposal so I can realize it next year. Due to unforeseen circumstances last year, I wasn't able to bring it to fruition this year, at least in the way I intended. (Keep tuned as there will be more for me to share about this in the coming weeks and months.)

In the meantime, I'll ask: What are your dreams and what are you doing to bring them to fruition? Even if they're baby steps, they're still steps! ; ) And yeah, I know, I should speak. I need to go practice what I'm preaching. ; )
