Life, death, and the grace to face both
And so it is that things come to an end. Just as my heart was lifted by a story nearly two years ago, so does it break a little to know it is over. If you’ve been here reading a while, you might remember that once I wrote a post called “Minivans, Mammaries and […]
Toronto recap – what do we stand for?
Four days in Toronto. It feels like I jump into a different existence, then trip back into real life Sunday night. It feels a world away from my everyday, and yet, I blink and it’s over. Where to start? There is so much to try to share – it’s all swirling around in memory and […]
A community becomes real at Blissdom Canada
You could argue that an online community is just as real as one that exists in real life. And in some ways, you would be right. We exist, we exchange, we communicate. We work and create in this online space as in any other. So why would we go to so much trouble to come […]
Today’s Parent and a little Bernard Callebaut
Yesterday I had a very indulgent moment. I was in the air, flying to Toronto for a few days of sheer bliss and inspiration. I always get so much out of conferences, but beyond that, the number of people I will be around who I really like (okay, some of you I flat out adore) […]
Conference crazy? Choose calm instead.
It’s conference time again, and whether you are a Toronto local or flying in for the weekend, you know it feels a little crazy. I’m coming in for She’s Connected 2012 and Blissdom Canada ’12 and can’t believe it’s already October. How did it come so quickly? I’m new to SCCTO, but this is my […]
BlogHer ’12 – the official recap post
You can’t fly to New York to attend a conference of 5000 women, be addressed by none other than President Obama by live video feed, and eat lunch “with” Martha Stewart and Katie Couric without being a tad overwhelmed. You also can’t report back to anyone who didn’t attend without coming off as completely obnoxious. […]
Let’s connect at BlogHer 2012 in NYC!
It’s official! BlogHer ’12 is upon us and New York City awaits! This conference is growing every year – over 4000 attendees will be at this one! I’m so excited to be going – I bought my ticket well in advance knowing there was a chance I wouldn’t go. We’re in the middle of planning […]
How to find the best “swag” at BlogHer ’12
Excitement is running high as BlogHer ’12 draws near. Everyone is talking about the parties, how much swag they came home with last time – and you know everyone is out shopping to be sure they are ready for all the glam and glitz of New York City. I booked my flights last night and […]

Who will tell Saskatchewan’s stories?
Who will tell our stories if the film industry is as good as pushed out the door? If we believe this place is as special as we say we do, then why would we remove the very creative force that could share it? As Danielle Chartier, MLA for Saskatoon Riversdale, was quoted in the Legislature […]
