This Room

It is noisy in this room, but you have found peace in sleep. The bustling Bulgarian family on the other side of the curtain; the shuffling and snoring of the other men in the room; the busy swish of the nurses as the check vital signs and answer pleas for relief all over the unit. … Continue reading This Room


Look For The Beauty

Don’t forget to look at the moon, and the sunset, and sunrises, and cows, and flowers, and smiling babies, and puppies, and pretty kitties. Listen to the end of the song, read the whole book, hug for an extra 10 seconds, walk barefoot in the grass, close your eyes towards the wind. The world is … Continue reading Look For The Beauty

Happy Canada Day 2019

Today is an interesting paradox - I love my country, and am proud to be a Canadian, glad to have the privilege of birthplace; while at the same time, the celebration of Canada Day is the whitewashing of my First Nations ancestry - we act as though Canada was born in on July 1st, 1867, … Continue reading Happy Canada Day 2019
