The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

The Fight To Be Creative -or- Why Is Nothing Easy?

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about a project I’m currently working on. It’s a children’s books I’m struggling to put together with a friend of mine… and I stress the word “struggling”. It seems that every time I go to work on the book life gets in the way – life or a lack of enthusiasm. I liken it to writer’s block but I’m […]

A Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters Re: Social Media -Or- Oo Baby, It’s A Wild Cyber-World

A Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters Re: Social Media -Or- Oo Baby, It’s A Wild Cyber-World

I noticed a post on Facebook this morning whilst wiping the coffee from my keyboard. It was by an actor friend of mine, Eugene Glazer. We worked together a million and eight years ago on the Warner Brothers TV series “La Femme NIKITA”. He was going on about all the inaccuracies , lies and fabrications that inundate the Internet daily. Many of the points he […]

Juliette The Gymnast -or- I Can Do That But I Don’t Wanna!

Backwards roll, front handspring, one hand cartwheel, press handstand, back layout with half twist, round off, cartwheel, tuck jump, backwards roll to pike, 180 split leap. Just beautiful! Of course I’m talking about the other kids. Mine is doing none of these. She’s the fiery little 5 year-old blonde chick lying on the mat in the middle of the gym like a bag of wet […]

MacRae Summer Vacation (2016) -or- I Know What You Did Last Summer!

KD MACK’S JOURNAL: VACATION – DAY 1: So far none of the other people in the neighbourhood have noticed I’m on vacation. I think I’ll keep it this way because it’s low profile and I’ve always wanted to use the term, “I’m keeping a low profile”. Went running this morning. Tried to beat my 5km time record. I almost succeeded but I got a call […]

Happy Birthday To Me -or- I’m Smarter Than An Infant

Happy Birthday To Me -or- I’m Smarter Than An Infant

Today marks my 47th year on this earth. On October1st, 1969 at 4:30 (Atlantic Time) I came into the world at 8 pounds, 14 ounces, 21 inches tall. Yes, 21 inches. My dreams of making the neonatal basketball team were dashed that day by 3 inches. Regardless, here I am, a lot taller, a lot heavier and with a helluva lot more life experience. It […]

Embrace The Chaos -or- My Kids Are Jerks And That’s OK!

If I had a time machine in my twenties and I used it to travel into the future to see what my life would be like today, as a father to two little girls… I might have run for the hills when I eventually got around to the time I met my wife. No, but seriously folks, fatherhood is NOT what I thought it’d be […]

Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters

Letter To My Future Teenage Daughters

Before our daughters were born my wife and I set up separate email accounts for both of them. I wrote pre-birth e-mails to them talking about how excited we were they were coming and the preparations we were going through in anticipation of their arrivals. I thought I’d share this one. I wrote it to my future teenage daughters (who are 4 and 6 years […]

Spring Is In The Air

“What are you eating? I hope it’s not yellow,” I say to my 2yo playing in the snow as I sit on a reclining lawn chair on our deck typing away on my iPad in very unseasonable weather (10 Celsius/ 50 Fahrenheit). The smell of Spring hangs heavily on the breeze. Gotta love days like this! As I scan my snow-covered yard thinking of all […]
