Hey Ma! We were on TV!

Hey Ma! We were on TV! 

Sometimes, you need to shake things up. We so easily get into our rhythm with daily life and routine, we forget about the great big world out there. 

It doesn't have to be expensive, or a huge commitment of time, to create an adventure for yourself. 

I love my work, I love my day to day life, friends, family, dogs... but my spirit is a gypsy soul and to keep her happy I need to nurture my wayfarers heart. 

I'm not a huge day time TV watcher, but one morning recently I caught the show "The Social" with my mother. It's a talk show that brings read more

Piano Man's Daughter



A book by Timothy Findley "The Piano Man's Daughter"

One of Haley's Favourites! 


A book by Timothy Findley

"The Piano Man's Daughter "


"What I found most intriguing about this book is it's narration. As a whole, it is narrated by the grandson of the "Piano Man" but he tells the story based on what he learned from his (grandson's) grandmother and mother (the title character) and his own observations. So the story really spans three generations. 

I can't articulate what it was about this book that made me enjoy it. I chalk it up to a well-written and unique story with interesting characters. read more
