Say hello to Darlene!
Hello Darlene was born shortly after I retired from a 34-year career in the financial industry and in the middle of a pandemic.

The caregiving journey is a winding road, with many bumps along the way and lots of turns and stops. It’s not a simple journey – not much guidance from others. It is more like wandering into a forest not knowing what direction to turn along the way. As you wander in the forest you will see the beautiful trees, the lovely butterflies fluttering around and the birds chirping, but sometimes you cannot see or hear the beauty and the path seems overwhelming and impossible.
Before the pandemic, early in the year 2020, I made the brave decision to declutter and renovate a home office area that was a space that had been neglected. It was quite an endeavour. This room is the room we have just stuffed all the crap that has no home since we...
