Reebok CrossFit and My “Blue” Leather Shoes

Three months’ ago I pulled out my tired Reebok aerobic shoes I’d worn in the 1980s when I was a Jane Fonda “workout-a-holic” in a women’s club in Salem, Massachusetts. At the time these no-nonsense, leather shoes, topped off with knit leggings that Fonda brought into the gym, turned the beefed up ballet look into a national trend.

Cultus Lake and the Sisterhood of Water Warriors

I first arrived in Chilliwack, B.C., Canada in September of 2011. I wanted to be closer to Harrison Hot Springs where I could go for the soothing sulphur infused water to treat my healing broken ankle. Having been away from Canada for 40 years, I’d been out of touch with the rich, Native history that continues to pervade this land; this land that still belongs to the Stó:lo community and their spiritual heritage.

The House Book Nudges My Shadow

“We know that the wildest and most moving dramas are played not in the theatre but in the hearts of ordinary men and women who pass by without exciting attention, and who betray to the world nothing of the conflicts that rage within them except possibly by a nervous breakdown. What is so difficult for the layman to grasp is the fact that in most cases the patients themselves have no suspicion whatever of the internecine war raging in their unconscious. If we remember that there are many people who understand nothing at all about themselves, we shall be less surprised at the realization that there are also people who are utterly unaware of their actual conflicts.”
