What a Twit: Part V

Latest Twitter favourites to put a smile on your face or give you pause for thought:

LinkedIn has turned into my parents. Sends me job posts even after I tell it I'm employed. I might be a photog, but I get by.

Best thing about a bike ride? Simplicity. Pedal hard, go fast. Pedal soft, go slower. No excuses. Thank goodness.

I don't know. Even with all the evidence I find it hard to believe that Rob Ford would ever be a mayor.

Something every Torontonian should know: crackpipe is one word according to CP style. And now you know.

If your first reaction isn't rational skepticism, you haven't been a cycling fan long enough. Or, I suppose, you've been one for too long.

Do not let the shadows of your past darken the doorstep of your future. Forgive and forget.

Doug Ford was directing traffic tonight. Nobody was allowed to go left for some reason.

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8. Watching a scary movie and jumping with fright (this is a guilty pleasure, I'll admit) 9. Grocery shopping with my partner (yes I know, weird but true - we are talking simple!) 10. Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))
What are your simple joys?

And though there are so many wonderful causes to choose from, nothing seemed a perfect match.  That is until we found The Furniture Bank.
The Furniture Bank is a Canadian non-profit dedicated to providing gently used household furnishings to families in need. With my new but growing background in design, and my partner's handyman skills, this was the cause we had been searching for.  Volunteers can assist clients with furniture selection, prepare furniture for delivery, provide marketing or administrative support, and/or repair furniture. If you'd like to say hello, come by and you'll find us in the furniture workshop giving pieces a second life.
So, if you're also considering volunteering for a cause, start by asking yourself what's important to you. Po…

I'm not Thinking about It

Meditation. Eastern philosophers have long touted its great benefits. Westerners attempt it with varying levels of success.
According to Wikipedia, meditation is “any form of a family of practices in which practitioners train their minds or self-induce a mode of consciousness to realize some benefit.”
