A heads up

I’ve made the decision to step away from the practice of Law to a certain extent (to be clear, I am still not a member of the Quebec Bar, thus was not ‘practicing’ per se, more like unofficially dabbling), and to get back into the classroom.  As such, I won’t be posting as often as I have been.

A great deal of my energy is going to be focusing on surviving the constant feeling of inadequacy that comes with working with youth-at-risk, but you never know… I do find that when I am extra busy, I’m also extra creative.  If I clog your inbox with tonnes of submissions after warning you that you wouldn’t be hearing much of me, you have my apologies in advance.

This is not to say the blog is closing down or anything of the sort.  I’m going to try to pace myself to an article a week, and see how that goes.  With the recent rash of cuts to pretty much any program that deals with indigenous issues, there will be plenty to talk about.

    OK sister – do what you need to do. This is a very long struggle. Will be glad to hear from you whenever.


  2. You must do what is best for you and your family. One blog a week is just fine. Best wishes for what ever you plan to do.

    Re: “to get back into the classroom”

    What kind of classroom if you don’t mind my asking? Are you going to be working on Cree as a language?

    From one blogger to another — I recommend writing a series of posts, then scheduling every week or twice a week. For example, write 3-4 blogs — then have them scheduled to be published once a week for a month. You spend 1 out of 30 days writing (or so), and then just doing promotion (twitter, facebook, etc.) on the day it’s published.

    I found that kept me sane with writing for blogs and not feeling fatigued after a few months.

    Your blogs are excellent and I’m very grateful for them – but you shouldn’t bear this burden alone. Can you persuade more Aboriginal people with your level of knowledge to start blogging? Canadians are ready to hear!

    Whatever you’re able to keep sending out, Sister, will be much appreciated.

    Blessings as you take on your work with youth at risk. Nothing could be more important. Let us know what support you need from allies. You are in my prayers.

    The youth are lucky to have you dear – you will bring many smiles and lots of laughter with your precious gifts. Don’t sweat the blogging, though I look very much forward to your voice. Keep those fires burning in the classroom too 🙂
