Where I Am Now

I like to make things. Paint, sketch, draw, dabble. I play crummy guitar and read like it’s going out of style. I love to bake and cook and scatter flour about my kitchen and wipe my weary hands on a sturdy apron. I take copious amounts of photos. I get lost easily.

I live in Canada. Winters are long and cold, summers are short and sweet and luscious.

I have a lovely baby and I am figuring out this parenting thing step by step.

There are lots of stumbles.

There are lots of mishaps.

There are lots of words of wisdom in the aftermath.

I am not where I started. Read long enough and you’ll see where I started. This is where I am now. Welcome.

    The good will come. I can’t say when or in what form, but the good will come. Most likely, it will show up when you least expect it, when you aren’t looking, and it will come in a way you could never imagine.

    Just loved this:

    “There must be hope and healing somewhere. Maybe it’s here, buried in words.”

    I hope healing has come, if not in its entirety, then in wound-sized bits.

    Peace to you,

  3. You were the one view and comment on a singular blog post I made August 2013 about a loss of my own, after that post I could not bring myself to write about it again until today, more than a year later. I learned today that you became pregnant again. I am so glad for you. Although your experience has been very different from my own, you have put into words things that I didn’t want to express about loss. More importantly though, you give a sense of reality to the feelings of confusion surrounding happiness that follows sorrow. Thank you for your words.
