introducing my "eclectic" life

Nice to meet you!

Writer. Dreamer. Doer. Not always in that order.

While covering "reel" life for nearly a decade, it is also time to focus on the "real" one. Welcome to my eclectic life! It is not always glamorous but it is mine. Fun fact: I love my dog Chewy, traveling, adventure, TV, movies, and a good mystery.

Why 'Heartland' Is The Only TV Show Keeping Me Going

Heartland Spartan Stormy Amy Fleming Borden Amber Marshall CBC

Ever feel like you are lost? You are not alone. It has been a trying time for the world the past two years, and there appears to be no end in sight. As someone dealing with health issues for the past decade, it only compounds feelings of despair.

Escaping into the beguiling world of “Heartland” has helped. Watching the Canadian classic has given me the chance to laugh and cry in equal measure. Yours truly cannot even recall the last time they cried so much watching a TV show. It is a tell-tale sign of how much you care for the characters. 

They have become like family, so I do not feel numb to their emotions or circumstances.

Crying has always been something yours truly has fought not to do in public, or when alone. “Heartland” has changed that. While I have tried to hide my tears watching the TV show, my choked-up voice has undoubtedly been a dead giveaway when answering a question. All told, I think all of that is healthy. We all need to cry regularly.

TV and movies should move us. It should be an experience that draws us into a world so viscerally that we weep for the characters. Not because we are crying for ourselves rather that we are empathizing so strongly that we emote on their behalf. To that point, I do not think I would be as emotionally sound or mentally fit right now without “Heartland.” 

It has been a much-needed breath of wholesome fresh air, to which I am incredibly grateful. If it were not for my beloved little Pomeranian Chewy, I would be nowhere near as emotionally available to “Heartland.” It is about animals, after all, and I feel that deeper than ever. 

Just FYI, the first thirteen seasons of “Heartland” are streaming on Netflix. The most recent season is Season 14, and that is only available on UpTV, which you watch via Philo.
