I can’t believe it. I cannot believe it’s already been nine weeks of van-livin’, Canada-tourin’, music-festival-dancin’, new-friend-makin’ and general summer-travelin’-shenanigan-havin’! Though my head feels heavy with the idea of returning home to routine, my mind, heart and spirit are filled with the emanating vibrancy of life. I’ve met wonderful souls, seen some mind-blowingly beautiful places, … More And Summer Winds on Down the Road
Look at this beautiful place. And, now, look at this one. We’ve made mistakes in the past. Let’s not make the same ones again. Canadian’s demands are pretty clear, it’s time to stand up for what’s right – and what’s wrong. Ottawa should have no say in what happens on our coasts, and furthermore should not … More Help Stop the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline – Resources & Information
Wow. It has been so long since I’ve posted anything. It’s been a month and a half since my voyage in beloved Haida Gwaii, and I still don’t feel in sync with this wild mainland world. I don’t think I ever will again, and I’m strangely okay with that. There have been a few moments … More The Advanture Begins!
Yesterday was a magnificent morning. That is really saying something, especially for those of you who may be sadly familiar with my lack of fondness for consciousness before 10am. Anyways, Francois called me at about 8:30, on his way to the university (to study for the last exam of his undergraduate degree!). Still sound asleep … More Whales!
The following post is from August of 2013. It was briefly published, but taken down for a while. That said, I’m at Jags, and two absolutely stunning bikes just rode up – the first of the season. And, wouldn’t you believe it, one of them is a Shadow, just like mine. Thanks, universe! * … More Ride on.
I got into exploring the provided ‘Insights’ for this blog over the last few days, and am nothing short of fascinated by where you all come from. I have so many questions for all of you. What do you do? Do you like where you live? Do you live where your people are traditionally from? … More Ancestors
I’ve been riding the groovy surf of an artistic catharsis. It must be impossible – to be in a place like this and not have the creative energies released. There is so much environmental therapy going on, from the stunning scenery and places to explore, and the delicious food you are given by the ocean or … More Pacific Passion
These damn Indians don’t pay taxes, they keep taking all of our money and land, and they still moan that they have nothing. I don’t see what they get to complain about. They lost the war, and it’s about time they learn to adapt. * * * I am … More A White Girl’s Understanding of ‘Aboriginal Affairs’
For our HGSE class, we were asked to individually answer a question with a photo and a short presentation. My HGSE cohorts each answered key questions about themselves and their experiences on Haida Gwaii, while sharing something really meaningful with all of us. It was amazing, to celebrate understanding and give a beautiful insight to everyone. … More PhotoVoice
It’s almost Valentine’s Day! The extra emphasis on love this time of year is a beautiful thing. When I was a kid, waking up on Valentine’s Day was as exciting as Christmas. My parents always did something nice for each other and for me, and it made for a really beautiful day, even when life sometimes … More Ling.xaal, and Valentine’s Day
