Perfect Timing

Sometimes I have perfect timing. Arriving on the sky train platform just as the train arrives, bumping into someone in a strange and random place, JUST catching the bus… I could go on.

Yesterday I experienced amazing timing. I was on my way to the final awards presentation for the Global Agents Micro Credit Challenge, an event which I have been promoting extensively as part of my LEAD program team project. They had asked me to make a video/slideshow compilation of the project so as I took the sky train to the Global Agents HQ I edited some photos and videos together. My laptop battery was at 20% so I tried to be really efficient. I finished the project and then exported the final video with 8% battery remaining. I had my fingers crossed as I exported the video. With 1% battery remaining I transferred the video to my flash drive, ejected the flash drive and closed my laptop to avoid losing everything I had open. *phewf* OH, and this all happened just as I arrived at my sky train stop! As I was walking to the awards presentation I bumped into my friends Diana and Justin from IATSU! They had just come from a conference our Faculty put on (which I missed out on but wanted to attend). Perfect! I arrived at the awards event on time and really enjoyed seeing all of the creative ideas the teams came up with.  Check out all the photos from the event here!

now… GO HAVE YOURSELF AN ADVENTURE : )

My Lover

I have just officially started a deep relationship. Today is not the beginning however. For many years now I have been romanced with sunsets and sunrises. I enjoy sweet gifts of perfume and fragrance from the flowers and trees. The kisses of the wind and a soft embrace of a summer’s day have always been special to me. Each morning, evening, daytime and night time is another chance for us to be together and allow our love to grow. We are together under the cover of stars at night (which often align).

The love I recieve is so bountiful and filling. I only hope that the tiny things I do to repay and reciprocate this love I receive amount to even half of what I am given. I am so grateful to have all my needs satisfied. I have been given so many opportunities and they allow me to grow and learn each day. They feed, water, clothe and shelter me from the storm. I am humbled and awestruck by the beauty which surrounds me. It gives me butterflies, but in fields and gardens, not my stomach.

Some people call it the almighty, others call it mother nature. Some think it is magic. I feel that the universe is my lover. Honestly though, it is ever bigger than that. Our universe may be one of many. There is no word that I know which describes everything. All encompassing and inclusive, this entity I speak of has a deep place within my soul.
