We didn’t plan very much so we spent the night wandering around between the exchange and the forks, slightly confused and lost.
Marching while the world burns. Our children take to the streets in a stark reminder that those who can effect change the most, won’t be alive to experience the impacts of climate change.
I missed Rainbow Trout Music Festival last year. I was in Nova Scotia at White Rabbit Residency during the festival last year. My partner and I went to Rainbow Trout four years ago, it was one of our first multi-day events as a couple with other people. The Big Test. I saw the northern lights […]
I love playing with weird materials, trying to figure them out. Some dollar store ball pit balls. Needle and thread? nope, too rigid. Using interfacing and the end of a hot glue gun to grommet them? Works like a charm. the shape controlled by the orientation of the balls in relation to each other. This […]
We got the car stuck when we stopped to take the outdoor photos. The weather had warmed up, and we sunk down a few inches. The car wheels kept spinning. A kind stranger who knows how to push a car out helped us push it out, and we were back on the road in ten […]
Mother moon, smudge. Technical difficulties that are outside of my knowledge. Holding my breath. Stay calm. Release of tension. Running through the woods by flashlight, finding all the delights.

I went to Flin Flon MB and Denare Beach SK for a week long artist retreat where I would be a guest artist and hosting a workshop. I had no idea what my next week would look like when I got there. My favourite thing about visiting new places is getting to know people who […]
One of Winnipeg’s best free summer festivals is Jazz Fest at the Cube. A wide variety of music of all genres, some great tunes to dance to. 3peat music played this year for the first time, and shared with the crowd that it was a goal of theirs to play for Jazz Fest, after having another […]
I took my Mom to her very first Pride event ever. We are from PEI and Pride isn’t a huge thing there. She loved it- she talked about how happy and celebratory it is. Which is one of the best parts of Pride! a huge colourful parade with people wearing what excites them, listening to […]
Seas of people walk quickly in the cold, puffs of condensed breath coming from the tops of their heads. Caribou and beers in hand, trying to find the tent and band you wanted to see (or find somewhere warm to defrost). Snow sculptures tower (or depending on the year, begin to melt). ATVs drive through […]

Winnipeg is a freaking cold city. It regularly reaches -30c to -40c (-22 to -40f) with the windchill in January and February, and the occasional cold snap in December or March. The people from Winnipeg are so nonchalant about the cold. Sure people complain about it, but in the way that people complain about traffic […]
