It took me a while to get around to this, but I want to say thank you. Thank you to all the kind people who stopped when my car broke down on the corner of Woodlawn Road and Mount Edward Road in Dartmouth a few weeks ago. Although I had it under control and was just waiting for a tow truck, at least two strangers pulled over to make sure I was OK. I appreciate it. It just shows that humanity does still exist, between all the stares and rude looks of passer-bys. Thank you and I hope your days all go well.

There is something deeply powerful and profound about feeling seen, heard and valued by another. Our understanding regarding the importance of physical touch and social connection is greater than ever—and so is the need.

You were exactly what I needed. We met through a dating app. Hung out for an hour, had sex and that was that. You were lovely. Thank you.

Home sweet home

Posted By on Tue, Apr 9, 2019 at 11:19 AM

Really good ice cream! Visible soil! Cool events! The Coast! Halifax, I missed you so much. No matter how many new buildings have popped up, how many new craters have appeared in the ground, and how many people have up and left for Toronto, you are still the place for me. I am so happy to be home again, and not just because it means leaving a particularly dull neighbouring province.

The first time I noticed you was last summer, when your hair was a purple, hot mess. You had held the door open for me. I didn’t thank you because fuck that patriarchal sentiment. I quickly walked past but only after checking you out cause damn you’re good looking. Nowadays I can’t stop looking. You’ve caught me a few times and have smiled back. Should I say hi? Am I being weird? Should I have just said thanks? Haha nah!

For my avian boo

I think you'd make it in Bird Hollywood, but I hope our starter nest and all my love will do until then. You've got my head in the clouds, sweetheart.

We met at our summer job last year. I thought I had gotten over my massive crush on you by now, but I still think of you often.

For the "Untitled Bitch" in the Coast

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2019 at 5:17 PM

I read the story of how the hospital failed you when you were having a miscarriage. I had a similar experience three years ago. I see you. It's horrible, and it's not fair. Take care of yourself and know that you are not alone. To everyone else: let's lobby for better medical care for those who suffer miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

Sunshine at Mumford Professional Centre

Posted By on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 6:13 PM

Blonde beautiful girl wearing a yellow dress on the first day of March. I immediately noticed a distinctive personality, a unique soul, one who can laugh at anything, one who is kind and caring to others. Her sweet smile can melt anyone's heart, her blue ayes are from another galaxy. You made my day and possibly my existence.

First, love thyself

Posted By on Mon, Mar 25, 2019 at 6:07 PM

Nobody else will love me. Nobody will understand that underneath this coarse, awful façade there is a person that means well. Many quickly see a cynic, and tend to discard the chuckles, the smiles breaking through like a ray through tumultuous cloud. Though I yearn to feel warmth from others, only I know myself.

Thanks for unexpectedly shielding me with your rainbow umbrella as I was sitting out in the rain. Your little bit of kindness brightened the end of my day. Thank you.

There are good people out there

Posted By on Mon, Mar 18, 2019 at 6:22 PM

I moved to a seat beside you at the bar to watch the final match of a rugby game on a Saturday afternoon. As time passed and we had a few brief exchanges about the game, you shared a pic of your healing dog Luna and the experiences you have together. You also shared that you were treating the guy beside you to a Mooseheads game as he was a good person that you employ. You commented about having a good life and giving back. "Give and you shall receive," was my comment back.

We did not even share our names yet you shared a bit of yourself so openly with me. It brought tears to my eyes and a smile to my face and my hope in writing this is that the universe will share this with you...there are GOOD PEOPLE out there and you are one of them, kind sir!

I am truly grateful for that brief exchange as it resonated with my heart and soul. To everyone else reading this: Just be open in the moment as you never know the story a stranger beside you may share and the positive impact that it can have. Share a story, make a difference each day, give back, smile.
—Be the change

Sunshine on the cold day

Posted By on Mon, Mar 18, 2019 at 6:18 PM

My dear friend and I were walking along to get to a gas station to get a few things and also get a little exercise. It was bitterly cold outside and you, out of the kindness of your heart, came to us and curiously wished my dear friend well with his cane. And, after a briefing on his affliction and why he uses a cane, you asked if you could put a hand on his shoulder and pray for his health and good things to come his way.

After the praying for good things to come his way you promptly offered and gave him a hug and than gave me a hug. You don't know how much it truly means for someone to go out of their way, stand in the cold and well-wish someone you don't know. You are truly a wondrous person, You invigorated both of us and despite the coldness on the outside you truly warmed us inside and gave us the energy and strength to keep pushing, keep trying and more importantly...keep caring. Thank you and I hope Karma rewards you.
