Treading Water (2009)

Treading Water, without a care in the world. Sun warming my face, waves lapping at my shoulders creating rhythm through my body. Arms and legs building strength moving in simultaneous determination. Looking straight ahead knowing full-well there will not be a lifeboat to find me. Treading water in perfect rhythm  with no intention of stopping….

Connecting the dots…

Let’s balance our thoughts and put them down on paper mixed up, messed up art. ~e •••••••••••••connect••••••••••••• The crows. They greet me in the woods outside my cabin door. They call to me in constant chorus throughout the evening and into the first break of day. They grieve. Their loss hangs in the air. “Listen…

Birthday Wishes

Hey. It was my birthday on the weekend but the party’s not over. It’s still my birthday week.. my birthday month.. my birthday season… who’s in!?!

Instantly, millions of tiny defence mechanisms started swimming through my veins making me all hot and itchy. I muttered some sort of response…

Good Grief

I’ve been thinking a lot about grief lately. (full disclosure: I’m always thinking a lot about grief). I don’t want to brag, but I’m kind of a grief expert. It’s been a constant presence in our lives for over three years and I’ve studied it from all angles. Well… I’ve studied our own grief. It so…

Happy birthday – the kids are alright.

Happy birthday Jason, This year we celebrated your day in typical birthday style; with your favourite food (meat!) and a round of “Happy Birthday Dad” before diving into cake. As always, we talked about you lots (do your ears burn in the afterlife?) and shared funny memories, most of which have been told millions of…
