About

My son and me at Morraine Lake, AB, Canada

I am Geneva Robins.

What comes next?

I am happily putting one foot in front of the other.

I am a kick-ass reflexologist. In a world where we are taught to be less than we really are and to dream only mediocre dreams, I delight in pushing on the bottoms of people’s feet and pushing them into their own greatness. My great dream is to rub feet. Old feet, young feet, rich feet, poor feet, big feet, small feet, brave feet, shy feet. Oh how many feet I meet!

This blog combines two great loves, writing and reflexology. ‘The Foot Book’ by Dr. Seuss was the first book I ever read on my own. I love it as much now, as I read to my son, as I did when I was little. This blog is a playful examination of how feet affect our lives and how our lives affect our feet. Your soul is written on your sole. I am very privileged to have sat at some very great feet.

    Have you written any books or participated in helping others in their writtings?

    You are so insightful, warm, and open in what you write that I just had to ask.

    I found your site while reading comments you made about CW Metcalf. CW was a very personal friend of mine and I miss him. I spent a lot of time with CW and I was lucky to see a side of him that most have never seen. I got to see how he actually handled pressure in his daily life. I got to see him walk his talk. CW was and still is an inspiration to me.

      How amazing is it that you were friends with C.W. Metcalf!!! And that you somehow found me, a person directly and profoundly helped by his words! You gotta love how this Universe works. πŸ™‚

      I am working on several books right now. I write the way I read, a bunch on the go and all over the place. With some focus over the next little while I will have a book written, maybe two. πŸ™‚

      As for helping people with writing, I am part of a writers group that is amazing, so I guess I help there plus the stuff I write about writing here. Friends of mine from the writing group have a creative writing coaching business and they regularly host workshops (online and in person). Check them out here: writingmidwifery.com

    You write a lot like CW taked, thought and lived his life. That is good, a compliment. In the years, months, and days leading up to his death from the complications of a past and present brain tumer, CW and I were working on a book. CW was fascinated with who I was and my life’s story. For years he kept pushing me to work with him on putting a book together using my ideas. So, in his spare time, when not out of town on speaking engagements, we would meet and work on the outline of the book. We were moving along nicely, when he started getting headaches again. Tests indicated that his brain tumer had come back. So for me, that was the end of our book. CW had the knowledge and experience to get the book done. I have a great story and great ideas that CW helped me put together, but was not able to help me get it finished. Knowing CW and how he always keeps pushing forward, is why I am again pushing forward. At first, right after his death, I was hurt. Then it was a matter of motivation. Now I have no excuse to not move forward. But I am not sure how to move forward. The book and the story is the easy part. How to get it finalized and protect myself along the way is a major issue for me. Trusting someone does not come easy and since the death of CW I have not even looked around for someone to point me in the right direction. Do you have any ideas or pointers for me?

      Wow, you are so kind. What a huge compliment! πŸ™‚
      Hmm pointers… I must admit that I have spent most of the day thinking about this one. First, write everyday. Just write and write and write until you can’t write anymore. Then, keep writing. Keep writing, even when you are tired, or in a bad mood, or just plain zapped. Write.

      Editing, revising, critiquing, re-writing, these all happen completely separately from the creative stage. I think editing occupies a different part of the brain than writing (just a working theory). That is my guess why all major published authors have a whole separate person to help them with editing. πŸ™‚ Your job is to get your story out, on paper, on the computer, wherever. No one else can tell it the way you can. That is why I say to just write, the structure and form will emerge as you go. Write.

      It sounds like you had some phenomenal coaching advice from CW already, so I would continue with your notes and ideas from there. It also sounds like his passing greatly affected you, how could it not, and stalled the writing process. It could be helpful to acknowledge that your story has changed since you last talked to CW. I suggest starting by writing about him and why you are writing your story. Write about what he meant to you and how he inspired you. Write about why you are angry that he is gone and how much you wish he could be sitting at your elbow while you type. Write about why he thought your story was so important to share with the world that he pushed you past your fears to consider it. Just write. Write.

      Trust that all of the other details, like publishers and literary agents and book deals, will take care of themselves as you need them. You don’t have to sort that all out now, but you do have to write. It is amazing what you can write in just 5 minutes a day.

      And, since no great advice from me is complete until I hand you a stack of books to read… here are some books that are great:
      Dying to be me” by Anita Moorjani (if you get past chapter two without crying let me know. This one is AMAZING!)
      Excuses Begone!” by Wayne Dyer (A fantastic kick in the pants)
      The right to write” by Julia Cameron (so good for developing writing discipline)
      Lighten Up: Survival Skills For People Under Pressure” by C. W. Metcalf and Roma Felible (Read, laugh, cry… read it again.) πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps!!
      Now go write! πŸ™‚
