HIBERNATION SEASON IS ALMOST OVER!
We’ve survived an unusual winter in BC this season. As February comes to a close, surely we’ve all created new ways of handling our tasks in Vancouver’s Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley areas.
We’ve discovered better ways to streamline business practices and processes, we’ve fine tuned and strengthened our methods… Some of us may have even thought up new business concepts and ideas…
Joyful Jo, also has stronger designs and new business relationships. Some of which are being shared with you here, today. Have a look:
|As some of you may already know, I’ve been plugging away at the creation and implementation of Joyful Outcomes during this past year.
Some news regarding Joyful Outcomes for you:
PS – Hope you’ve had a FANTASTIC FEBRUARY.

Great life lessons and a fun read, too…
My first attempt at skippering our 13 foot wooden yawl was a disaster. The wind on Pamlico Sound in the Outer Banks of North Carolina was stiff when I took the tiller and the main sheet (the line that trims the mainsail).
When the wind is blowing and the boat is tipping, things happen fast. As a skipper, all you have is a sail, your body, and a tiller, and you need to be able to react quickly.
You need instinct. And I didn’t have it.
Every time the boat heeled, I steered into the wind to keep from capsizing, then lost momentum. I put us “in irons.” Despite steady, moving air, my sail flapped, and the boat stalled. We’d get going again, the boat would tip, and each time, I reacted out of fear instead of confidence. I was at the mercy of the wind and the chop, knowing…

Happy Robbie Burns Day! Who is Robbie Burns, you ask? Why, he’s the Scottish poet who wrote “Auld Lang Syne”, of course. As today is Robbie Burns Day and Jojo is part Scottish, what more a perfect day to post a poem in my “Featured Friends” section. Though, Dan Martinez, is a friend, he is also my brother and therefore, part Scottish.
As my Papa used to say, “Too Ra Loo The Noo”
There are no illusions here.
Listen to the silence
as it echoes around you.
Do you know what I mean
I am the elements.
For I am the earth.
I am the sky.
I am the fire.
I am the water.
I am the wind.
I come and I go, as I wish.
My signs are everywhere.
For I am the sun.
I am the moon.
I am the mountain.
I am the river.
I am the forest.
Nothing is beyond me.
I transcend all.
For I am the man.
I am the woman.
I am the beast.
I am the fish.
I am the feast.
All are in me and I am in all.
I am the essence of existence.
For I am the sound.
I am the sight.
I am the smell.
I am the touch.
I am the taste.
Nothing escapes me.
I have many names,
None fits me very well,
But none is my true name anyway,
So what’s the difference?
I think, therefore I am.
