Sunday morning pancakes; Belonging Cookbook

I am so pleased to volunteer with Nourish Project with their Belonging Cookbook.  We are collecting recipes from our community members … but not just any recipes.. recipes for belonging. We believe food has the power to transform our everyday lives and bring communities together. Is there a meal or a dish that brings you…

I’m Aware.

It’s Suicide Awareness Month and let me tell you, I’m aware. I understand the benefit and importance of such months but sometimes I just want to say ‘go fuck yourself, September.’ In part because much of what I see on the internet, indicates that if we were to just listen more, we could save the…

a month without milk

They’re back. After 13 days (and 13 nights) my kids are home from their grandparent’s camp. They left the day after we returned from a 2 week family camping trip (see previous post) and so needless to say, the last month has been completely out of the ordinary. Look, I have more experience than the…

Settling In

For 14 days and 14 nights, this was my view. Trees. A scrape of sky.  Firepit flames. I shared a tent with my two kids, within arms reach of the tent my partner shared with his son, and for 14 days and 14 nights I barely spoke to another person. (Red squirrels, chipmunks and fungus…

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!?! I turned the fabulous 42 with a group of gorgeous strangers at a spiritual/meditation retreat led by my brilliant cousin, Jill Prescott. It was so incredibly satisfying. I’m still processing…

Feet on Earth

Let’s start in the middle. Tuesday May 1st, 2018 Tonight I walked nekked (that’s Steve Poltz for naked) outside a cabin in the woods all alone. I drank full moon water and danced in the smoke of a smudge stick. I walked  down to the river over a pile of ice and blanket of pine…

I am thrilled to be included in the recent Electric City Magazine article THE NATURAL WARMTH OF TEDD2S’ TATTOO ART written by Zara Syed featuring Peterborough’s local artist, Tedd Hucks. Special thanks to photographer, Samantha Moss who not only took some stunning photos but also made my first {naked} photo shoot super chill. And of course my…

Guilty Pleasures

The other day I was talking to someone about some projects I’m working on and was told, “You are lucky to have so much free time for your hobbies.” Stop. The. Bus. Instantly, millions of tiny defence mechanisms started swimming through my veins making me all hot and itchy. I muttered some sort of response…
