October 1, 2011 I woke up in the middle of the night last night, in horror at the realization that the tent I need for the farmer’s market might not fit into the car. I had picked up a new car from Enterprise Rentals. The last one was too small in the driver’s area. I […]

September 20, 2011 I have a book from the library that is overdue. I don’t want to return it. I know I won’t be able to renew it. And I still need it. So if I just keep it, even if it is overdue, then I can still use it. A brilliant plan, or so […]

September 4, 2011 I was cut-off again in traffic. A truck pulled out of a gas station, right in front of me. I had to swerve to avoid rear-ending them. I pushed on my horn and braked quickly. I don’t think they even bothered to look before pulling out. I drive a lot. My work […]

August 9, 2011 As I complete the first day of my cleanse, I am struck by the contrast between my situation here in Canada and the current famine situation in Somalia. Here, I am completing a cleanse because I have provided my body with far too much food than is necessary. So I am overweight. […]
