I’ve been listening to a song on repeat for a little bit now. “Comes and Goes in Waves” by Greg Laswell. Actually, I’ve been listening to it and watching it. I like words, and am endlessly fascinated by how they are used. A friend asked me recently how my interest in words plays into the..

When I saw that there was an art exhibit at the Winnipeg Art Gallery on Women, Violence and Art, titled “Off the Beaten Path” I knew I wanted to go.  I intentionally altered my schedule in Winnipeg so that I could attend the exhibit on opening day (and because there was a World Vision event..
