  • The Halifax Explosion

    December 6, 2019 by

    December 6th is a somber day for my family. As well as it being the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, it also marks the anniversary of a disaster that aligned the stars so we could be born- the Halifax Explosion.

    November 30, 2019 by

    I am sorry to have to interrupt my scheduled Red Maple post from my three-part Forest Of Reading Series, but this post that I am putting up today contains time-sensitive content.

  • Climate Fiction

    September 21, 2019 by

    Our planet is dying. That’s it, the complete and utter truth. If we do nothing about the rising oceans, melting glaciers, intense forest fires, and the disappearing ozone layer, humanity is going to pay the price.
