Who is She?

Hopelessly feminist,
Shamelessly Proud!
A flair for adventure,
A Faithful heart,
A love for laughs,
And some mischief too!
Be ware dear reader
For this lady is not,
For the faint of heart.

I Changed the World


It seems unreal to save a life
Is it a simple venture or a lie?

Handing out a used coat, an extra coffee;
I have saved a moment not a fate.

That night is still to be conquered
by those that suffer without a home.

Life is love they say, life is cheer,
Now put on a smile and think positive.

Tomorrow’s another day, we must start over,
Let the sorrow’s of yesterday fall away.

But what of those sitting still in the cold rain?
How may I ask shall they make merry?

Charity is received everyday, it falls away
into a endless pit of “feel good” giving.

The coffee I gave; picked by a child
miles away and unable to afford school

The coat made by a mother still unable to
feed her family after long hours of toil.

Rest assured I have done well,
Sleep well I shall,

In absolute oblivion to the harm I cause
even in the good I think I do.

Can there be any real good?
Should I sleep better with the thought:

I cannot change it all,
I must not dwell in what I cannot change.

I will sleep well tonight.
Because today I changed the world;

I wrote a poem.

Paganini Strings – Ashokan Farewell

I had a great time today at the PAMA (Peel Art Gallery Museum + Archives). Living close by I’ve always thought I should take the time to have a closer look at this beautiful historic building within the enclaves of Brampton’s historic downtown. Its an excellent presentation of history and arts in the region. Definitely a must see.

It was a pleasant surprise when staff directed me to a quartet concert in the building. I have to say I was blown away by how talented this very young group of performers were. I have always been a fan of the bridge between classical and modern music. The Paganini Strings did a great job not only in their classical performances but also their take on Christinia Perri’s “A Thousand Years” and Mission Impossible. Just a few of the many pieces they performed flawlessly today.

Great job guys! Officially won over as an adoring fan! 🙂
