Let the games begin

Wow! What an opening ceremony celebration last night. The highlight for me was k.d. Lang singing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.

Not from the ceremonies…amazing still…

Elizabeth Gilbert :: TED Talks

I’m in the middle of reading Committed, which has rekindled my love for the humbled writer, Elizabeth Gilbert. I am one of her readers, that after finishing Eat, Pray, Love, I couldn’t wait to read her next great work. I visited her site monthly in hopes for an announcement of a release date and checked Chapters online often to make sure it didn’t slip through the cracks. Now that it’s here, I once again have Liz fever, ok I’m not that excited, but I do enjoy having my weekend coffee with her.

A year ago, she did a TED talk. Presenting a fresh way of keeping our creative accomplishments in perspective… and suggests what creative genius is. A must watch or listen.

It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.” – TED

Amazing collection of sounds

Click HERE to be wowed!! Great music, no matter how you play it. My favourite is the video that starts off as a city scape. Try playing it on it’s own, every meditative and the video is cute too.

Mid-week video

A cat video for the mid-week lull, or in the case of this week… mid-week scramble. I love that he has a technique to sliding on his belly. Enjoy watching, I have many times already.

Best riding on the coast

In 2003, I had visited Powell River for a summer and fell head over heals for the technical single-track biking trails. I love the speed of downhill mountain biking but there’s a sense of accomplishment when riding the winding, root-filled and hilly trails Powell River offers.

After that summer I vowed to one day come back to this lush rain forest. And here I am. Just a mere three blocks from my house and I’m able to get lost in the bush, push myself to new levels. Experience the riding here in PR first hand though this video. It will make you want to get on your bike and ride.
