Mom always told me I was her ‘fey’ child, like a tea towel in the wind, never knowing where I would land.
Now, with over a half-century experience upon this earth, I have spent my time exploring, learning, loving, working, reading, walking rural and urban streets, watched the death of loved ones, a marriage end, and it changed me.
Born in North Carolina, I lived in the states until I was almost 3, and then we came back to Canada where my mom’s family is from. I’ve been here and there, but really all I’ve ever wanted is to stay put, in one place, ideally here in the village. Feeling often that I straddled two worlds, at a crossroads, this blog has become about just being here, a journal, a memoir sometimes, with pictures, a little poetry, and plenty of opinions.
