Bruce Peninsula - The Leaves Listen to Misha’s voice!
Jag började gråta i en affär när jag såg julkorten. Aldrig mer kommer jag skriva ditt namn på ett kuvert, du kommer inte vänta på brevbäraren. Jag saknar dig så mycket.
Toronto’s skinny houses present layout challenges, especially our Victorians with bay windows. But it’s starting to look like a real house.
The second bedroom is finished. Right now serves primarily as a suitcase unpacking room. Minou trying to suffocate herself in a pile of plastic. alt.suicide.methods Carnage. I got this map in Iceland. It is enormous and now it’s on the wall. I have tubes full of maps from the US military in the early 1900s but maybe my house will look like an atlas. Most things at the...

This is a photograph Simon Annand took of Holly Hunter backstage at Wyndham’s Theatre in 2004. She was playing Hester Swane in By the Bog of Cats and it was one of the best things that happened the entire time I lived in England. Seeing a play you love can be so sad because once it is over it is gone and exists only in memory. I felt that way after Festen at the Lyric especially, like you...
Look at these beautiful blacktip shark pictures from Wild Ocean’s EPK.
About a week ago Richard Lawson, the funniest writer on Gawker, wrote this regarding the We Are the 53% actions: This air of the nobility of the underclass is so sad and, cornily enough, eye-opening for me. It’s quite a feat that the oligarchs (for lack of a less sensational term) really have convinced these people that their poverty is noble and righteous and, in this life or the next,...
I rode that horse again and I didn’t lose it. We jumped a course, one with the biggest oxer so far, it was the best. Afterwards we ate carrots.
Cigarettes are bad for you, Lake Shore isn’t going to air, what’s the point of anything??
“There are those who say the system is broke. It’s not,” trade union activist Bilbo Goransson shouted into a megaphone. “That’s how it was built. It is there to make rich people richer.” - ‘Occupy’ anti-capitalism protests spread around the world (The Guardian)
It was a whitetip reef shark! A really big one! AAAAHHHH!!!
Here are some animals that live in the ocean, by the most beautiful beach in the world with so much living coral, like a forest, a neon forest, not grey and sad like Hanauma Bay. A turtle almost swam into my face. All of the giant ones were sleeping at the bottom of the sea, swaying a little bit with the waves. There is a moray eel in the third picture from the bottom. Kevin...
I can’t believe the shooting in Seal Beach, it is so fucked up, Seal Beach is just the place we would buy things to make quesadillas on the boat and drive by Leisure World and make jokes and where I ran to from Huntington Beach one day and almost threw up over the bridge. Those poor people.
In December I will learn how to scuba dive, combining many of my greatest fears - sharks, drowning, shipwrecks, being underneath boats, and more! - in a single activity.
25 years ago my dad left Sweden because he hated the Social Democrats and thought he loved American capitalism. Now America has made him a socialist advocating class warfare. Thanks!
I snorkelled at my favourite place on the north shore, where my grandfather would not swim because it is too slippery. I saw a dozen little sea turtles in the waves right by the shore. I wonder why there are so many right now. I went to a shrimp stand on the side of the road and a white limousine pulled up and a tiny old woman got out and ate shrimp while her driver waited by the ponds.
I flew to Oahu. It is many people’s least favourite island, but I like it most of all. I was in the ocean and a green sea turtle popped up beside me. A huge one. I followed it and it popped up again and again, then another came and I followed that one for a bit. I have seen a lot of turtles while snorkelling off of Maui, once was like magic, but this was just while regular swimming, close to...
The Rise and Fall of Design Within Reach By Jeff Chu Christin is doing exciting things I’m in Maui. I lost my swimsuit.
In May the Toronto Symphony Orchestra will be playing Elgar’s Cello Concerto. I always buy the cheap tickets for people under 35 and usually get really good seats, even front centre mezzanine sometimes, but I couldn’t take the risk for this. I need a ball gown or something. I’m counting down the days. It is the most beautiful music ever written. That and Mahler’s 5th...
ElderDog is an organization that helps older people maintain their relationships with their dogs, cope with the loss of their companions and helps dogs whose owners are no longer able to care for them. There’s a mature gentleman who walks his two Jack Russells every day in High Park. One dog walks beside him while the other one plays. Then they switch. He walks very slowly. I’ve...
I miss my grandmother. The problem with death is that it lasts such a long time.
Look at Jonathan Crow talking about and playing the del Gesu violin the TSO now has: Rare violin awaits its concert debut So exciting!
