The thoughtful and engaged people @parkmemorialyeg have arranged for a talk on grief and mental health today at 2pm MDT. It’s a lead-up to their May 10 full-day event, where I’ll be joining with a session on grief and writing.

Grief and Mental Health: they share stigma, pain, and silence. They stand alone… but one often intermingles & affects the other. But how? When? And Why?
These are the questions that we are going to delve into during our Live Stream conversation on Tuesday, March 19th at 2:00pm. As a prelude to our Finding Grace in Grief full day of practical grief support event being held on Friday, May 10th (#linkinbio), Park Memorial is proud to present this vital conversation focused on one of the most frequent questions asked by our grief support event guests: what is the relationship between grief & mental health? Please tune in to our Facebook page or our YouTube Channel at www.youtube.parkmemorialcares.com to hear the conversation.
We are so pleased to have two of our Finding Grace in Grief workshop facilitators as part of this panel discussion. Cheryl Salter-Roberts is the Grief Support Services Manager for @pilgrimshospice, & @blakeloates is a fierce mental health advocate and founder of We All Believe in You, a local mental health support community. Joining them will be Carmen Victoor, former Grief Therapist for the Stollery Palliative Care Team, and Kimberly Knull, Co-Founder of @momentumwalkin . Our gratitude goes to each of these local grief & mental health experts for donating their time and expertise to this event.
Moderating this panel discussion is @carriedollconsulting whose commitment to using the power of story to connect & inspire is the perfect fit for this discussion. Carrie is no stranger to grief, & brings her own personal experience to the panel. 🔹

My first sourdoughs! Thanks to @sarahclassenyeg ‘s mom’s levain, @norlandbrae red fife, and @kenforkish methods...I’ll just be over here on the couch patting my belly for the next little while.
Macaron making class with the @dinechartier pastry chef and @jbclaer last night was the perfect finale to our 28+ days of birthday, 2019 edition. Thank you! And contented sighs spill out all around.
Saying the wrong words on purpose! Kazoo-ing the theme to Rocky! Bringing the Fool! It was so much fun doing community theatre with #theatreathabasca and playing alongside pro actors and fight choreographers last night. Thanks to #athabascarotary for coming to us when you thought about eating with your hands and dodging sword fights for your annual dinner celebration.
I like the prime number years best, so I can broadcast how I’m “in my prime.” Here with my mom’s old Velcro curlers under a wrap like Grandma Olson would wear—and my dad’s old pheasant-hunt-scene sweater, knitted by his cousin a hundred (or sixty-five?) years ago, probably from a Paton’s magazine pattern, like everyone did. Here, on my birthday last week, taking a super-obvious selfie into the mirror as I *re-enter my prime,* dammit, only slightly before receiving the gift of cake and eating it too.
As today’s outside temperatures approached absolute zero, I’ve taken my inspiration from #brunothedog —stretched out in the glow of birch in the woodstove.
