    The Parable of the Trapeze

    Years ago, when I started first year university and moved across the country, I really struggled with the transition. Everything was new and unknown territory. I had no idea where my life was headed and all of the comforts of home had disappeared. I was finding all of the uncertainty very challenging. During this time my mom sent me a letter. In it, she included the “Parable of the Trapeze”. It helped me then, and is helping me now amidst some big life changes.

    Telestrations

    What did you get up to for New Years? We had our annual get together at my parents house with family and friends. I have never been much of a board game fan, but do like games that are more interactive. This year what stole the party was Telestrations (specifically Telestrations After Dark –the adult version). Have you played? It was so fun! We were all laughing so hard out faces and stomachs were hurting! If you haven’t, it is basically a mash up of Telephone and Pictionary. One person has to draw a word then pass to the left. The next person, looking only at the drawing has to guess the word or phrase, write it down, then pass to the left. The…
