French Navy

I saw Camera Obscura last Friday night at the Commodore. This is my third time seeing them and as always, they delivered.

The combination of Tracyanne's voice and her heartbreaking lyrics have me so hooked.

Ideal reading spots

The weather in Vancouver has been truly lovely these past couple of weeks. It's been a lot warmer and sunnier than the usual late May weather we're given.

All I can think about it lying on a blanket in a park and reading a good book. Alternatively, the above setting will do just fine.

Life is reading

From a young age, my life was all about books. When people asked me what I would be when I grew up, I would not hesitate, "A writer!"

My parents would drop me off at the library and collect me a few hours later. It may seem like abandonment, perhaps even a sneaky way to get free babysitting, but I WANTED to be there. I even tried to take out more than the 25 book limit on more than one occasion.

My love of books has not faded. I can't imagine a life without a stack of books on my nightstand.


Josh and I met about 10 years ago. He holds the title of being the friend I've known the longest and also the friend that's the closest to me.

Everyone needs a Josh. But you can't have mine.
