For this special milestone episode, my husband, Ruben Anderson, interviews me. A self-proclaimed atheist, Ruben starts out with basic questions about intuition and spirituality. But things get interesting when evidence mounts that Ruben is, in fact, the most spiritual person I know.
How We Met
Ruben and his former wife owned a very popular pizza place in Victoria in the 1990’s. (To this day, people stop us on the street and say, Hey pizza guy! When are you going to open up again? Best pie I ever had!) Canada’s favourite astrologer, Georgia Nicols, knew I was a big-time foodie and told me I had to check this place out. Ah-mazing. Eventually, I worked for Ruben and Shannon on contract. I opened a second restaurant for them. Fast forward over a decade later, (me now a single mom), and I happened to meet Ruben again at a sustainability festival. Our first date lasted 36 hours. We married in the Manner of Friends (meaning “Quaker-style”) in 2012.
In this show, we reference John O’Donohue’s poem, Grace Before Meals.
Ruben asks me about my Victoria Yoga Conference speech which has come to be known as the “Fuck Happiness” talk.
