I am someone who creates meaning from happenings. It is what metfor10 is all about. I look for signs to point me in the right direction. Positive signs that remind me everything is going to be OK.

From Dark To Light

This encounter is a result of several meetings over several years. And, just now I am seeing the connection; all those little reminders, packaged into meaning that I am so happy to share with you.

Fall is my favourite season. There is something about the first few weeks that makes me feel like I can accomplish anything.

Have you ever felt an urge – an urge so strong you truly and utterly felt it in your bones!? Why is it more times than not, we give into fear, and decide not to feed this impulse. Some of us may not have enough money, others may fear that the this decision could result […]


This entry is for people who like buts.  For the meaning behind this encounter, you might just have to get that head out of yours to see it – pun intended. Sir Mix A Lot said it best, ” I like big butts and I cannot lie…” Through this encounter, I realized that this obsession […]
