Trailer Park Kids - So I Was Thinking

Trailer Park Kids As a family we moved a lot, in fact we lived in six small towns before I was ten. We then moved to the big city of Winnipeg and even being there didn’t allow us to grow roots that took. We lived in four more homes in different neighbourhoods from grade four […]

A Child Never Held - So I Was Thinking

Labels - So I Was Thinking

Acknowledging and labeling our identity is a hot topic today. Somehow we need to know what sex or absence of sex we are, who we have or don’t have sex with, what mental state we are in or what physical ability we have or don’t have, what religion we are or what color our skin […]

Unplugged - So I Was Thinking

Unplugging from the net and social media for just a little while, can give you an opportunity to reconnect with life. I have recently had knee surgery and have been working on my recovery. One activity I do is a morning walk with my senior black lab. We find parks with forested areas and trails […]

Taking Time - So I Was Thinking

Taking Time “How are you doing?” We ask and respond to this question, what, maybe a couple dozen times a week? Maybe more. I have never really given the question much thought, it’s just a greeting you throw out. What I have noticed is that, if I take the time to respond to the question, […]

Walking A Mile In My Shoes - So I Was Thinking

Walk A Mile In My Shoes I saw a meme recently that said “ Never mind ‘walkin a mile in my shoes’…Try spending a day in my head.”. It made me think how would I describe what it’s like in mine with a traumatic brain injury. Let’s see, you would wake up early around 5:30 […]

Don’t Stay Alone - So I Was Thinking

Don’t Stay Alone I once worked for a group home with mentally challenged young adults. The house they lived in was in an older area of the city, where most of the houses were what would be called, character homes. This was one of those. It had high ceilings and tall windows that went to […]

The Guilt of Surviving Suicide - So I Was Thinking

My first blog comes on the anniversary week 1996 of my mother’s passing. Terri was one tough lady. Always spoke her mind. She was a small town girl from Swan River Mb. She spent time in foster homes. She married young, had three wonderful boys ( and the grey hair to prove it ). Divorced, […]

Fall In Love - So I Was Thinking

I’m always amazed at the way life directs us. October 9th 1981, I was at home on a Friday night which was not something that happened very often. The phone rang, it was Lisa calling for one of my brothers, for her friend. My luck, I was home alone that night. Lisa and I started […]

I awaken in the middle of the night barely aware that my hand is already on it moving back and forth. Slowly, hardly noticing the pressure but starting to feel the pleasure starting to build. My hand starts to move a little faster, I know I should stop, already I’m reaching that point where I […]

Sharing With A Neighbour - So I Was Thinking

Today we shared a coffee and a meal with a neighbour. We first saw him sleeping on a concrete bench outside of a Walmart. It was -15 C with the windchill and 18 km winds. Had it not been the generosity of family this very year, this could’ve been an address for my own family. […]

Shopping During The Pandemic - So I Was Thinking

I stood inline at the grocery store yesterday waiting to be let in, standing six feet apart in the parking lot. Wondering to myself why weren’t we lined up on the sidewalk under the roof. Made it to the front of the store where four of us were let into the area between the doors […]
