Here I am again. As I said – sometimes there is too much stuff and not enough time. Happens to me lately more than I am willing to admit.
But anyway – as I had posted earlier, on November 4 the book “To Drink the Wild Air” will be introduced by the Lit Chick Show hosted by Sylvia Massara. Here is the link:
The intros newest components is a new video book trailer, public in You Tube as of today, called
The clip incorporates the feeling and the motion of my current mindset and determination to change my life around to something I can enjoy for the next 20 years or so. I had a pretty good run so far but now breaking into my second half of life a lot of things are changing. Physically, spiritually and mentally. All three combined have incredible power to throw these unexpected curveballs because body mind and soul are just not familiar with the challenges and have to adapt and re-learn. It’s just like when we grow up. Life always presents changes and transitions but in some parts in the course of a lifetime they are more defined and difficult and it can be that one’s whole life philosophy has to change and adapt simultaneously. All these changes need an open mind and even more courage than in the earlier years because time has turned into a fierce competitor and our physical body also rebels with some of the activities I have considered as normal for many years. Every day is a new challenge but is also exciting when keeping the final goal in mind.
Long live life and what we make out of it!

I am well aware of the fact that I am currently not able to keep my weekly schedule with the blog and I also admit that I am DROWNING – in work! One person is only able to do so and so much and finally something has to give.
My own little business is picking up because we are looking into the holiday season and this is the first time I’m having to contemplate in how to move forward. It is getting too big for one person to handle. This new situation clearly presents another roadblock and new challenges for me but hey I already made it that far and things will work out. Nevertheless I am happy and I am still trying to accommodate all my other responsibilities like for example keeping everyone up to date with the progress of the To Drink the Wild Air project. I am drinking the Wild Air on a daily basis all right and as unbelievable as it sounds I still was able to contribute with a little Interview to a very special blog.
You can find my short contribution in the Blog tab at Trillium Motorcycle Tours and Events which contains the Women Rider’s Speak series.
Women Riders Speak is an interview series with female motorcyclists which appears every Monday. Through their stories, they illustrate the trans formative role motorcycling has played in their life. In this interview, Birgit Soyka of San Francisco, CA reflects on how at 51, after a riding gap of sixteen years, she reconnected with her youthful spirit.
When I read the mission statement of this blog it spoke to me immediately. I never looked at it that way because I always felt this oneness with the bikes and it took effort on my part to quit at one point in my life. However, the final statement in the About us tab in the Trillium blog is reflecting my personal journey in precise words and I am hoping that I can share my personal transition and mental transformation with others on this platform. Every transition has its own story, and there is any which way possible to change things in life when there is the willingness to do so. Read on, Trillium’s blog is full with stories well worth to be read.
Since it’s creation in 2003, Trillium’s purpose has been to create an environment which facilitates personal and professional growth through motorcycling. Hundreds of clients have enjoyed fantastic motorcycle experiences throughout the best part of Ontario, made wonderful friends and visited new places – geographically and metaphorically.
While continuing to fulfill its purpose, Trillium’s focus has changed to reflect this perspective-discovering the road to personal and professional leadership and transformation- while still retaining adventure and networking opportunities.
