The Space Between

I love Really Smart People

As a blogger I feel I have a responsibility to occasionally break up my navel-gazing and share important stories written by funny, smart people – and Matthew Sharpe is one of those. In his recent blog featured in Salon called ‘Stop Calling Scalia a Scrotum‘, Sharpe insists:

“…we can disagree with each other without comparing people to genitals…”

I couldn’t agree more. Although the ‘escroto’ who tore through the red light this morning certainly received a less than compassionate oration on his driving abilities. But that, as they say, is another story.

In October 2012, I drove 6,800 kms with my artist husband, Ric Kokotovich (, and my dog Iggy, to spend 6 months in our adopted city of Merida. Leaving the fast paced world of Calgary behind, I packed my books, art and entrepreneurial spirit, and set off to explore what lay beyond the borders that had become my life. In October 2013 we hit the road south again, hoping to find out what ‘living the dream’ really means. This is my adventure.
