(You) Found (Me) Tonight

I scare myself out of good things. Something will start out so well, and then those voices in my head — the ones that have certainly overstayed their welcome — will begin whispering. I do this most often with relationships. To catch everyone up, I’m currently several provinces over from where most of my family… Continue reading (You) Found (Me) Tonight

A Filler Chapter

I’m hanging out on a cliff right now, metaphorically speaking. There aren’t any cliffs near me in Halifax. I’m not standing up. My toes aren’t curled protectively over the edge.

We are not okay

It’s not okay. It’ll never be okay. It has never been okay. The hate, the prejudice, the blatant disregard for human life, for morals, for virtues, for our humanity, will never be okay. It should never be accepted or defended. Evil exists in this world and sometimes it is so insidious it can manifest in… Continue reading We are not okay

Dunkirk (2017): A Review

*Spoilers* for the film will be indicated by an asterisk! The sea can burn. The human body will sink if one wills it to. The oddest thoughts went through my mind as I watched the film Dunkirk unfold. My boss saw the film on Thursday and when I came for work on Friday several of us engaged… Continue reading Dunkirk (2017): A Review
