Arrival Outside Kingston

After an early start, a couple of stops, and lots of heat, we arrived.

Big Girl Pants

Pandemic. Canada’s last ice sheet collapses. Beirut. It goes on.

Simple Errands

Just running around doing errands…

White Dress in the Mud

The mud after a thunderstorm and a white dress, what could go wrong? Well, nothing. Especially if you consider the stains on a dress a sign of a pond enjoyed, a laugh had, and a hug earned.

Insecurities are Good

“We’ve been told, for some unknown f**king reason, that insecurities are bad things. It’s the opposite. Take a good look at someone who doesn’t seem to have any insecurities. Take a look at someone who never says they’re wrong and never apologizes. Take a look at someone who thinks they’re perfect. I’ll tell you what you’re looking at: a total f**king a**hole. This is a person who never thought they needed to improve.” You’re Not That Great, Elan Gale.

Handmade Crochet Dresses

When my Mama purged her yarn and texted me, “Do you want it?” I replied with a resounding, “Yes!”

That Same Place Never Gets Old

It never gets old, does it?

Normality is Overrated

“…and I can’t promise you that everyday won’t be some kind of crazy, because that’s just who I am, and that’s the kind of love I’m looking for.” – Rumi

A Walk With a Friend

It was hot. I mean heat advisory hot and humid. I drove out. In traffic. It annoyed me. So, hoping to make it more than just a short visit, I asked to do her nature walk.

We Need Contact and Touch

“It was the longest she had gone without human contact; without the soft, conceding warmth of someone else’s skin. She began to crave it after a while, to obsess over the most trivial things. Like a hand on her shoulder or a king word from a stranger. How long, she wonders, before I forget how it feels to be wanted? How long until I lose all recollection of love?” – Lang Leav
