CSA all the way

Posted By on Tue, Apr 30, 2019 at 1:18 PM

Every week, every single week, for the past four months (and counting!) you take time from what I can only assume is an incredibly busy farm life to come into the city. You hand-deliver not only your organic produce, but also your eggs, fruit and pasture-raised meats to my community. Everything is grown with such love—I swear I can taste it in every bite. My family and I wait for our box of goodies to roll in from Port Williams to Bedford. Opening our share of vegetables every week is beyond exciting. Thank you for taking such good care of the land you grow on, the soil you nurture and the families you feed.

Girls are the best

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2019 at 1:51 PM

A few weeks ago I was dancing and singing at The Seahorse and I keep going back to a moment of bliss where you leaned into me and we belted out a song together. It felt nice to be noticed by you. I needed it. Thanks for the flirty green garland.

Happiest of birthdays

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2019 at 1:50 PM

I miss you. I never thought my daughter wouldn't know her auntie, one of my favourite people. Every time I listen to Raffi or Fred Penner or watch some silly kids' show on television, you are still (and will probably always be) the person I think about. I think about you a lot outside of children's programming, too. I wish I knew how to fix this. Happy birthday, my beautiful friend.

You don't need to keep leaving me treats and greeting cards in my doorway. I'm grateful to simply be alongside you.

Humanity

Posted By on Mon, Apr 15, 2019 at 2:13 PM

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.

Notch on the bedpost

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.

Cider cutie

Posted By on Tue, Apr 9, 2019 at 11:04 AM

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

Posted By on Mon, Apr 1, 2019 at 5:32 PM

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.

To all the students spending their mornings and nights at the library: I see you and I appreciate how hard you're working and the sacrifices you're making.
