Insight

14 03 2010

Funny, the random moments when an insight can slip through.

On the ride in from Toronto yesterday, the thought slipped in–healing isn’t always about fixing what was broken or trying to go back to being almost as good as new. It can also, often, be about learning to live with parts that have been broken, and that have never quite healed right. It is about feeling the joy and the love of life in spite of those permanent losses and scars.

Sick again… :(

3 02 2010

I took this pic this evening. It’s one of the first to turn out reasonably okay from my iPhone.

The sad thing is that I seem to be getting sick again. I’m still coughing from last time, and now I’m getting a sore throat and sniffles again. The doctor said I should go back and see him if the other symptoms come back, but frankly I don’t know when I will have the time! Maybe tomorrow afternoon. I’ll go after my meetings and stuff. Lovely. How annoying. I do not need this. I really don’t, not now, with the semester heating up. *sigh*

Urban Scapes

Taken on Richmond, near Spadina, on a late, bleak winter’s afternoon. For all its industrial chic, it is an artists’ collective, with all kinds of funky shops and studios inside. It’s worth checking out, if you’re in the area.

My short story in On Spec

28 04 2009


On Spec – current issue.

Here it is, in all its lovely, tiny dragon and matching bird-covered glory! My short story “The Lost Girls” is in there, along with a good few other fantastic tales. TLG about a few different things–loss of cultural identity among colonized peoples being one thematic motif.





The Ever-Changing Planet

It’s oddly mesmerizing, watching this real-time simulation of CO2 emissions, birth & death rates by country. Move your mouse over a country to see the population, birth and death rates for it.

Shopping Teams

This pretty much sums up Tom’s and my shopping style. Depending on the product, we’re either “good” or “very bad”. From xkcd.com.
