    I don’t know what’s out there, but Ouli and Genevieve keep begging to “go for a walk” in the hallway. Ouli will jump up on the shoe rack and Genevieve will claw at the door while whining. I can’t figure out what’s out there.

    If you could make your pet understand one thing, what would it be? I would love for our cats to understand how we display love and affection. We, of course, being people. The hugging, kissing, petting, and snuggling. It’s all love. In their own way, our cats tell us they appreciate us. They are most…

    What is your favorite animal? We have three cats. Before getting my girls, I thought about getting a dog for about thirty seconds. I adopted sisters. Hannah had Ouli. Incidentally, all three cats were born on the very same day. They’re not related. My favourite animal, however, might just be the elephant. I think I…

    Is there a difference between a productive day and a busy day? I think I had a productive day today but it didn’t feel so busy. Yesterday, I felt busy but not productive. I think it all comes down to having a schedule.

    I bought this binder when I was working on Letters’ Lounge, a website I started over 15 years ago. The idea was simple: people write in anonymous letters. I liked the idea a lot. Life got in the way and it never quite panned out. It’s okay, though, because it started me down a journey…

    Riel’s first walk outside in downtown Toronto

    Eventually, I’d like for us to be able to stroll casually through a wooded ravine. The concrete pavement just outside the doors of my apartment building will have to do for now. Riel has been moaning a lot lately so I thought that getting him outside might help. The balcony just isn’t big enough or…
