60 is 100

& other thoughts from my daily adventures

I’d be hilarious if people weren’t so easily offended.


sondern. the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.

A hand full of herbs and a pocket full of tomatoes.  The good life.

An afternoon in scotch village with Ben and Sam.

bowtie funtime.

a little bit of rose oil

a hint of patchouli

a touch of juniper

and maybe some sage

a dab of tea tree

and some argan too

some chanel

make it sound like space
always more reverb
more dreamy
and louder!
I like what you did there
let’s take off.

A few pictures from our rehearsal tonight, can’t wait to share our music soon!

"Grab my legs and pull me around like a dead deer.  Like a real hunter!"

"Grab my legs and pull me around like a dead deer. Like a real hunter!"

singing somewhere, anywhere


pack my guitar

and capo

a tiny set list

step outside

it’s dark already

9:00pm

subtly summer is saying farewell

letting us down slowly and lightly

walk toward the bus stop

but lindley makes my pocket ring 

"i’ll pick you up and take you"

a sit on the curb

a truck with shovels and rakes and some dimply smiling cheeks

a few turns, bumps, a conversation

spring garden road

hop out with my guitar on my back

people look, mindless stares

probably wondering, “is that taylor swift?”

walk down the stairs to a more than full house

tripping over patrons and waitstaff

feeling like an elephant in a barbie dream house

SHRINK ME!!

made my way across the place

to the sound guy

always find the sound guy

his name is phyl, with a y

said the night’s full, something about signing up online

you know how well i get along with technology

carried on

happy to leave the chaos

now what?

i’m all hyped up - prepared to sing to hundreds of strangers

i sit on a ledge on spring garden and south park

i used to sit here when i worked across the road

it feels different when i have no where to be

it’s only 9:30

i text some near by friends to try and adventure

walk toward agricola

devon makes my pocket ring

commons?

between the fountain and the washrooms

i’m there first

i practice a song that flows easily until the last line

that last line is a bugger

i’ve been listening to radiohead and getting ambitious 

devon appears through the darkness

he’s lighted by a lamppost

wearing red plaid and straight jeans

same outfit as me

northend uniform we joke

we share songs, laughs, some theories about a mystery chord i’ve been using 

…something diminished we decide

another body appears

it’s rowan

not in uniform

"have a seat with us, we’ll sing you lullabies!"

songs and conversation

an adventure planned

across canada to live in the woods with 7 cats and a friend

city sirens and traffic

the ebb and flow of the fountain’s cycles

i used to be so afraid of this place

wouldn’t even walk here at night and now it’s a safe place

a retreat
