Okay well….it’s been a little while…but I haven’t forgotten you or this blog. I swear! I’ve thought of it often and have wanted to write but I am almost completely enthralled with my two girls and find it hard to tear myself away for anything and truly it’s hard to find things more interesting than [...]

We are well into our second week of our American sojourn in the Big-D and as part of my total vacation -assimilation plan (I’ve also taken to applying several more coats of mascara and using “y’all” as part of my general lexicon) I’ve chosen another Brooklyn-based book author/illustrator to celebrate (there really does seem to [...]

The past month or so I have been thinking quite a bit about how people get along with one another. It started with the concerning mean behaviour from the little boy at Emmerson’s daycare and further cemented itself into my daily life due to some interpersonal work drama that has recently come about.

I have never been a girly girl. I’ve never been into frilly things, unicorns or becoming a princess when I was little (at least as far as I remember it). Hair bows, sweet dresses, doll houses, flowery patterns, make-up and nail polish just didn’t interest me as much as other things did.  I was more [...]

One of the items in the news today was about a recent draft report that fare evasion is cost the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) over 22 billion dollars last year, a jump of almost double than last year. Now anyone who lives in the Greater Toronto Area knows that the TTC hasn’t had an easy [...]
