It's a beautiful time of life. Despite the global uncertainty (or because of it!), I am inclined to spend more time than ever doing the things I love as a therapist, educator and human bean.
As a therapist, I am blessed beyond measure to work in deep, trusting relationship with clients of all ages in my private practice. With the addition of online clients from all across British Columbia, I have never been busier or more honoured to serve. Whether in my New Westminster office or far beyond, in the places where you all live, work and love, I relish our shared pursuit of wisdom, wonder and wellness.
As an educator who has dedicated three decades to public education, I am joyfully anticipating the global development of my labour of love, Kwil Club. As a positive, proactive educational project dedicated to the love of literacy, creativity, and social-emotional learning, we are poised to create and connect with children and creative inner children of all ages with more capacity than ever. With the future publication of Creative Connections: The JOY of keeping pencils moving and keyboards tapping! and ongoing digital enhancments, frizzy-fuzzy green-nosed Kwil's dream will fully and finally come true.
As a human bean, I will continuue to pay it forward with great love and faith, giving voice to the creativity and humanitarian causes I care about. If it adversely affects the young, old, poor, sick or any othered population being denied the universal human right to full actualization, I will finally have the time and opportunity write my truth in poetry and prose. When 'being the change' as a therapist and educator is not enough to 'change the world,' I will offer testimony and truth to transcend my time.
With the guidance and support of my creative inner child, Kwil, I will keep my pencil moving and my keyboard tapping. In whatever capacity that may appeal to you, I thank you for joining me in my roles as a therapist, educator, and human bean. I'm having the time of my life. That is my wish for all of you.
