A gentle reminder

Its snowing where we live in North Ontario, fat soft flakes and like Neil Young's song we are helpless over what arrives, but in a good way.

Winter wonderland reminds me that we can wave our internal white wand and see only the best in people, including ourselves.

As the holiday season approaches, my wish for everyone is to take the time to look in someone’s eyes, see the beauty, forgive any projections and express your love.  

Blessings to all, Angela

About Me.

I've been writing and giving seminars since childhood. At six I had my younger brother perform plays I'd written, bribing him with candy and favors, then I'd critique his performance. Later my style became gentler, more compassionate. Being a survivor of the school of  hard knocks, I wanted to encourage others, so taught English and Drama to high school kids at risk. In the late '80's I started my own company, Angela Jackson Seminars, giving workshops on conflict, stress, and communication skills. I'd developed amazingly effective tools to deal with anger and wanted everyone to have them, so I wrote a book, Celebrating Anger, which became a Canadian Best Seller.
