Ep. 033 - Best. Match. Ever.


On this short solo episode, I realize how ludicrous it is to try and imagine the lot of what our parents do for us - but if you take just a second...

Enjoy

Ep. 030 - Do not be anxious. Recalibrate. (w. Tanguy Exume)

© Alain Mercier (IG: @dmjazzmusic) - All Rights Reserved
Blessed. 'Tis indeed the word. When you come out the other end of yet another powerful and thought-provoking exchange - all you do is take a second, breathe it in and realize that certain opportunities, connections, conversations and people are truly a blessing.

My guest, Tanguy Exume, was nothing short of an amazing spirit to have on the program. With a genuine philosophy of kindness, resilience, patience and mindfulness, there was no time for questions - only for listening. And sometimes, too often actually, we lose sight of how important this simple act can be.

Wearing a variety of hats ranging from - and I'm not making these up - dedicated Crossfit Athlete,  to Poet, to published author, to Teacher, to Salsa Insctructor, to most notably and closest to my heart, loving husband and father...Tanguy is a singular expression of eclectic Awesomeness.

Stoicism, acceptance, personal truth, recalibration(a word I'll be using quite often going forward in regards to shifting my internal dialogue)...the guy is a wealth of perspective and wisdom.

A conversation that most assuredly could have gone on for much longer...but nap-time is an unpredictable foe. But a terrific exchange by all accounts.

You can connect with Tanguy via his Instagram feed Twitter

His latest book, "Sur Mon 31" is available via Amazon


I do hope you enjoy this exchange as we certainly enjoyed bringing it to you.

Ep. 029 - Me, Myself & IG



Following some kind encouragement from a few friends, I recorded an Instagram LIVE Story a few days ago. Obviously, with the fairly little warning I'd given, a couple of people got back to me asking if the broadcast session would be available for later viewing.

The concern did not fall onto deaf ears. This is the result.

I have to admit it's a rather revealing experience when you listen to yourself from the audience's perspective. I touched on some personal stories I had all but forgotten. After listening, I realized how these events and circumstances have impacted me in a rather significant way.

I'm all about transparency. Wine helps.

Enjoy.

Ep. 028 - Dream. Do. (w. Ben Gardere)

© Dimitri Rousseau (IG: @zendimz) - All Rights Reserved
When circumstances become rather consequential and the situation demands your rather immediate attention...what do you do?

When you get hit with an idea, and the choice remains on you to pursue it or let it pass...what do you do?

At some point or another, we've all come across this familiar fork in the road along our journey,  be it creative or otherwise, where we have an actionable and impactful choice to make.

In this very candid conversation with my guest Benjamin Gardere, writer, director, production assistant, and very well-versed individual in all things film, these are some of the very truths that we address.
This was indeed a wonderful and intimate recap on a particular and very recent chapter where he had that very choice in front of him :  To dream or To do.

Simple. Not always easy, but simple.

You can connect with Ben via his Vimeo page where you can check out some his great work and short films. Also, Ben is an accredited member of the Director's Guild of Canada and all necessary inquiries can be directed via the available contact page - or simply drop him an email at : bengarderefilm@gmail.com

I do hope you enjoy this exchange as we certainly enjoyed bringing it to you.
