SemPictures in the Sun

I spent the lovely afternoon yesterday worshiping the sun in Trinity Bellwoods Park before lunching in Kensington with my good friend Semco Salehi of SemPictures.

He always knows how to make me feel pretty…

Where it all Begins

It Hurts to Become

… and at once I knew I was not magnificent

My Eyes are not the First to cry

“People cry not Because Love ends, but Because it still Continues, even if it’s over”

Beloved poet Adrienne Rich has died at 82 today of complications from rheumatoid arthritis. Feminists, poets, and lovers of the written word will mourn her loss, though her work will live on.

Only Love is all Maroon

Saturday is a great day to fall in love ….  with Bon Iver, that is. Though the band was founded by folk music singer-songwriter Justin Vernon, he’s too modest to take all the credit: “Bon Iver is often equated with just me,” he says, “but you are who surrounds you.”

Who do you surround yourself with? What elements do they bring to your life? If our company is a reflection of who we are, then looking into the faces of friends and loved ones is like looking into a mirror. What do you see?

Favorite lyrics: “Only love is all maroon / Gluey feathers on a flume / Sky is womb and she’s the moon”
