The Natural World

I grew up in the woods. There’s really no other way to say it. Growing up I couldn’t see any neighbours houses, just trees. As a little girl my days were spent outside in the trees playing house. I pretended the stand of trees between my house and […]

The Road Less Travelled

One of the biggest decisions I ever made happened in the 1990’s when I was in my early 20’s. I had a really great job at an up and coming large tech start-up in Toronto that had already made its young entrepreneur owners into millionaires but would net […]

Me Too

My Private Fringe

On Sunday I will have been married for four years. I haven’t laid eyes on my husband in over two years. This morning I’m meeting with a lawyer to begin the divorce proceedings because my husband says he still loves me, doesn’t want to divorce, and while he’ll […]
