Earlier this week I saw this fun experience occurring right before my eyes. And for once I had a camera on hand and snapped away shamelessly:

Perspectives on Health
Today I want to share some pictures from PostSecret. They are sad, touching, cheeky, funny. I want never to forget the fears and thoughts of the people sitting across the desk from me.
Delayed St Patrick’s Day Post
Here’s the thing about the Boy and me: We expose each other to different realities. I take him to formal balls and artsy films that he tries to write off to his so-called snobby past. He keeps me grounded and reminds me to have some fun. Last Saturday he dragged me to a St Patrick’sContinue reading “Delayed St Patrick’s Day Post”
Weekly Photo Challenge: Down
…but before I get to that, today I reveal my brand-spanking-new blog button, yay! I’ve never been great at the whole design thing, but I think I finally hit gold with this one. I hope you like it.

When dirt was considered a toy
Summer Camp Day 22: What’s your most beloved childhood memory? I find it difficult to answer this question because I remember so much. If I remembered anatomy as well as I remember my personal and family histories, med school would be a whole new level of awesomeness.
Dusty Keepsakes for the Heart(hard)drive
A little project I attacked with some vigour during this shortish holiday was digitalising our family archives – which basically entailed scanning our family pictures to my computer (I like hyperbole, okay). My dad and I share a soft spot for the family history and I have had nightmares of losing all the old filesContinue reading “Dusty Keepsakes for the Heart(hard)drive”
Day 5: What do you prefer to do on your birthday? Birthdays are big in our family – as are Mothersdays, Fathersdays, and holidays like Christmas and Easter. We have learnt how fragile life is, even the youngest of us. In my Grade 12-year we lost so many family members and friends that I seemedContinue reading “Birthday-thoughts”
