  • How much we lost

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). I’m posting articles featuring important women. I’ve been missing her a lot lately. This should be the time of my life when we can finally see eye-to-eye. When I apologize for the bullshit I put her through and she sits back and laughs. But it isn’t. My […]

  • The way you treat others is the way you treat yourself

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). I’m taking this opportunity to write about women who’ve inspired me. There was really little more than native grass and dust in the most of the province when my grandmothers were born – one in southwest and one in central Saskatchewan. They were both born into successful […]

  • Pay yourself first

  • Slick’r’n snot on a doorknob

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US) These are some of the women who have made a difference in my life. There is one woman I remember looking up to my whole life. I mean, I remember the sensation of just looking at her and thinking “wow”. From the first memories I have, she […]

  • How to tie balloons

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US) These are some of the women who have made a difference in my life. When I asked my Auntie Jo how she’d met my uncle, she said “I had just started teaching [in the tiny Saskatchewan hamlet my mum’s family is from], and was living at the […]

  • Like a drop of ink in a glass of milk

    March is Women’s History Month I’m making a series of posts about women who’ve made a difference in my life. I remember going to a friend’s stagette party (it was the first stagette to which I had been invited, other than my aunt’s bridal shower at which my mother, much to her own mortification, discovered […]

  • Get up. You’re embarassing me.

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). This is a series of posts about important women. Do you have a friend who’s been part of your life for as long as you can remember? It’s a crazy, wonderful relationship. Almost like siblings, but you *choose* to stay close. Through the toughest times of my […]

  • “Changing a prejudicial law is the first step in changing society’s perceptions.”

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). I am doing a series of posts about women who’ve made an impression on me. You have probably never heard of Gwen Jacob. This is unfortunate. In the early 90s, Ms. Jacob fought in the Canadian court system for equal rights. It was a case that you […]

  • “I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun.”

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). I am doing a series of posts about women who’ve influenced me. Katharine Hepburn was older than my grandmother, but everything about her just made sense. The more I learned about her, the more I watched her movies, the more I thought “this is the smartest ‘celebrity’ […]

  • “One creates oneself”

    March is Women’s History Month (in the US). This is a series of posts about women who’ve influenced me. The early 80s was pretty awesome for developing a love of science fiction and fantasy.
