Wonderful evening & talk

TalkKeikoOct2015I had the wonderful opportunity to share some thoughts, ideas, and inspiration about the parallels between making art and life process this past Saturday evening at The salon no.97 hosted by Ms. Keiko Honda. Big thanks for having me for the evening! Glen Phillips thank your for connecting me. Tim Sullivan, Thank you for the lift to/ and from the event!

Here’s what a few of the attendees had to say about the talk: “Deb is completely in line with her inspiring life story. She is clear in how an artist should set her priorities in creating a full, creative and inspired life.” Patrick M, Yoga Instructor, Vancouver BC. “I learned to look deeper into my creative process to find inspiration and also to honour the boundaries an artists needs for her own self care.” Jenny C. Teacher/Singer/Artist, Vancouver BC  “[ If you have the opportunity to hear Deb speak ] Bring your notebook and take notes! I’m [now] inspired to focus more on my goals and take time to meditate in my life.” Gabriel P, Urban Farmer, Vancouver BC.

Inspired Around the world and back!

CApri_AroundTheWorldIf the world had a song/anthem, what would it sound like? Isn’t it time we had a world anthem to unite us all? A beyond inspirational 11 year old, Capri, came to visit our Toastmasters Group (Club #59) this evening, asking us this question. She spoke to the group and shared about the world voyage she is embarking on with her Mom, Dad, and little brother, leaving Vancouver this November. She is going to sing 80 national anthems in 80 countries, each in their mother tongue language, with the intention to raise money for orphaned kids around the world. Her first stop? Ottawa. Number of people in attendance? 20, 0000 to which she will speak AND sing to. #INSPIRED. Learn more at
