I almost hit, “Tweet.” I was gonna do it, I was. The words had been written and all that was left to do was hit that blue button. I could’ve but I didn’t. I stopped myself. Just in time? Maybe.
Every time I’ve sat down to do some journalling over the last two weeks, my plans for the summer have been top of mind. I’ve been desperately trying to figure out what I want to do with the nine weeks that lay ahead of me. The practice of looking forward with no clear idea of… Continue reading Prongs on a Fork
We are living in some strange times right now. COVID-19 has covered the entire globe. Here in Ontario, a state of emergency has been declared. Toronto is eerily quiet.
