How Ya Feelin'?

Okay Then
Some arguments are impossible to win, not because your points are not valid, but because those in opposition ignore your strongest points. In these cases, my favourite phrase is, ‘Okay Then.’ And then I move on.
Did I actually say that out loud? This is a phrase I know too well. Sometimes we become so playful with language that our conversation stops being centred in direct communication. We say things that are least expected. We become cheeky.
It’s okay. The world will give you what it does. People are who they are. Sometimes things are a challenge. Sometimes things run smoothly. Despite it all, I feel pretty good. Content.
There is a wisdom that exists. A certain, ‘knowing’ that things will be okay based on faith. Experience shows us that there is only so much we can do to create our realities. Succumbing to stress is trumped by a certain knowing.
Scribble Head
When the world throws a person too much information all at once and one is having trouble processing it, one may find him/herself a victim of scribble head. It is the mélange of ideas and possibilities that knows no end. Escape is only possible through deep relaxation.
Sometimes we know something just doesn’t seem right. We are given hints. We do not ignore these hints, nor do we stand up vehemently against them. ‘Really?’ can mean too things. 1. Do I really seem that gullible?   or 2. Are you really attempting this move?
Toothy Grin
The man with a toothy grin is up to something. He knows something you don’t know. I expect that it’s something positive and magical that he hesitates to share.
Ever been told a story about someone’s situation that changes the way you see him/her and the way you see the world? Ever been in a room when someone walks in who is so striking you think they could star in a film? Ever been finally paid the amount you thought you would only earn in your fantasies? Wowza! Wowza! Wowza

It was time to spruce up the back room with some brighter faces that stare back at you while you write copious notes in your journal, flip through a magazine, have your first online dating experience or spend time with your family/friends.

The coffee at de Mello is fabulous and you know how much of a coffee snob I am, if you know me at all.

Other fun things in the city...

Salsa on St. Clair is happening this weekend.

Here's an excerpt from their site:

Saturday, July 19th - Noon to 10pm
Sunday, July 20th – Noon to 8pm

TLN Telelatino, the Hillcrest Village BIA and the City of Toronto present the 10th Annual Salsa on St. Clair, Canada's hottest street festival.  Salsa on St. Clair has grown from a local event to a nationally recognized celebration that has attracted hundreds of thousands of “festival enthusiasts” to the streets of mid-town Toronto since its launch in 2005.

Inspired by Miami's famous "Calle Ocho" festival, the mid-July “Salsa on St. Clair” weekend is an annual free celebration that transforms a stretch of St. Clair Avenue West (from Winona Dr. to Christie St.) into a showcase of Canada’s biggest salsa party featuring live music, dance lessons, fiery food and family fun!

This year Salsa on St. Clair will be bigger and better than ever and will be the big enchilada capping off the week-long Salsa in Toronto Festival. Bring your dancing shoes-It's going to be CALIENTE!

You might just see me there!!
