About me

I am akin to a mushroom risotto

“It is not in what we think and feel, it is in what we do and say.” (I) Christine Toda

What will I convey to you, the readers, “about me?”
Be prepared, I don’t do normal!
Being a visual learner, I see myself as a mushroom risotto.

Mushroom Risotto:
simple, yet complex

  • layered
  • full of flavours
  • earthy

Because a mushroom risotto can be:  exotic

  • Synonym for exotic:  colourful, unconventional, out of the ordinary, offbeat, playful
  • Herbalicious, from Fresh Herbs, “It’s the word that you’ve heard – it’s got flavour, it’s got groove, it’s got meaning.” (WS)

Groove definition from Urban Dictionary:  “A verb meaning to smoothly interact, maintain or improve relations with business associates, a person, or situation.” (WS)

I am now okay with scoring in the “out of normal” percentile, when taking psychological tests! I am unique, quirky, and perceptive.

Passionate, creative, and artistic.

My passions include:  reading, cooking, learning, and travelling.

Serendipity, synchronicity, and coincidence happen to me all the time.

Quotes – I love them, and live by them.

”Words are my world.” (WS) Christine Toda

Showing empathy is what resonates deepest to my core.  Being grateful is the key to my happiness.

A desire to share the valuable lessons on life, I learned from an early age.  Lessons from my dad – the catalyst for this blog.

Catalyst:  A person or thing that precipitates an event.

We can all make a difference.

Take what you need from me.

My dad’s words echo in my heart, and head.

“Show your gratitude through words, thought, and action.”  

“Knowledge is more precious than gems.”  

“Be kind, be kind always.”  

“Give without expectation.”

“Pay it forward…pay it forward…pay it forward.”
