About Me

About me (in no particular order): happy beach bum, former director, active world traveller, so-so wife/mother/grandmother, good friend, busy-enough management consultant, funny ENFP, reflective mentor, passionate nature lover, adoptive dog parent, occasional poet, true music fan, pretty good cook, really poor blues (guitar) player, meditative thinker, and a decent leadership coach. And I forgot, I love photography  – trying to get better over time. Based on this narrow but true profile, my blog will probably be…well, multi-faceted.

      1. As your storytelling unfolds you’ll discover the common thread that runs through all of them. You’ll feel it in your gut.

        …then it’s up to you…what you do with it… 😉

  1. Hi, I really enjoy reading your blog and have nominated you for the “Inspiring Blog Award” and “One Lovely Blog Award.” There are a few rules to this nomination (these aren’t my rules, so do what you want…no pressure) you need to give a shout out to me, of course, tell us 7 things about yourself and then nominate 15 bloggers, that’s the tricky part, if you don’t have 15, don’t worry, just pass it on to someone….share the joy by following this link http://changeforbetterme.wordpress.com

    If you have all ready been nominated my apologies and pass it on anyway! We all love to be recognized for our work. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks so much Jackie! It is very easy and rewarding to be your reader!
      I find myself always looking forward to your next story! And the continuation of those you write in installments. I very much like your “voice”!
      And When I try your colourful recipes, I do my best to follow them…almost, you know me and my cooking…

  2. I have enjoyed peeking into your world and think you’ve done an amazing job of sharing life lessons and the world around us. I am honored to nominate you for the One Lovely Blog Award! Please pick-up your award at Life Textures http://wp.me/2z1jQ .

    Copy and Paste the Award to your blog and follow the rules of acceptance. In the words my mom always shared with me – I wish you enough.

  3. Had to google ENFP – how techno is that ?? (well I impressed myself) – thanks for finding the time to visit my beeseeker blog, just reciprocating – and found this section very engaging.

    1. Thank you Harold. I have many more stories to tell from my years living and later traveling there. Most of the photos are paper copies so it takes a lot of work to illustrate…I love your photos, happy I found your blog!

  4. Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my poems…
    I enjoyed reading your post and looking at your pictures from Cairo. I visited Giza and a couple day trips to Cairo September 2010. Your post brought back memories. 🙂 I think I could be a beach bum!

  5. I am an INFP! I think I might be ENFP if I was not faced with all the pain/medical challenge over last 20 years… my oldest daughter is ENFP like you! 🙂 ~ wonderful intro – yes multi-faceted is great! 🙂 RL

  8. Hi Helen, I just wanted to say I have purchased four copies of your ‘Confessions of a Rescue Dog’ as i consider the stories very appropriate for my grandchildren to read and to have read to them. By Christmas I will have 8 gkids so one copy to the four families of all those gkids. I have enjoyed very much your stories, especially the ones of Bumbles visit with Sam in Canada. So my little Australian grandkids will benefit from your wonderful stories. I wish you well in your future writing. Michael.

    1. Thank you Michael! I hope your gkids enjoy Bumble’s adventures and an occasional little lesson that Bumble tried to sneak into the stories 🙂 And thanks for your encouraging words too!

  9. Hi Helen,
    I’ve been invited to participate in a blog hop. I don’t usually do those things, but the focus is on the writing process (I have a little interest in that!). If you think you might be interested, please let me know via my contact page (I didn’t see how to contact you here) and I’ll send you the guidelines. Thanks, Michelle

  10. Tiny, it has taken a few days but finally I have landed on your blog. Thanks you so much for bestowing a follow on my blog, it jus great to have you on board. If you have any recommendations or suggestions just drop me a line. Will be touring your site, MM 🍀
