Event Announcement: Nuit Blanche 2018

Nuit Blanche is a big deal in Toronto. It is perhaps the most significant art show our city has. But what makes it so unique, is that it’s free! Every exhibit and every show are accessible to the public, including young people like me, who didn't necessarily grow up surrounded by art as a form… Continue reading Event Announcement: Nuit Blanche 2018

38/2017: Titles

I can never think of titles maybe because my words are too used to running untamed without definition and ownership. Or maybe I hate titles, because they ask me to think about what I am trying to say, instead of what you tell me I am speaking about? But then again, maybe I only hate… Continue reading 38/2017: Titles

36/2017: Worlds of Words

There are so many beautiful words in the world, but you only give me the ones that show your ugly fear.

Day 215: Where I’m Meant To Be

On rocky purchases, with bended knees, try to ride the falling Earth. Catch my breath, only to be thrown again, soundless strikes of thunder before me. Past this storm, lies promises of paradise found. Peaceful moments of life unbound, centred in the waves of time. The path I walked crumbling behind me, the place I… Continue reading Day 215: Where I’m Meant To Be
