My grade 12 English teacher once indicated that my writing was like a white water rafting adventure instead of a smooth paddle on a calm lake. I didn’t see anything wrong with that. Since, I have been feverishly writing (rafting-style) for Canadian Running, Massage Therapy Canada, Fido Friendly, NOW, The Vancouver Sun, The Other Press, the Jane Goodall Institute, Room and a dozen women’s fiction anthologies.
In 2008 I started what became the foundation for a blog called Alphabet Soup. It was my way of attempting to harness and digest all that I was experiencing. I was in Africa for four months, and desperate to share all the textures and tastes that had enveloped me.
And when I crawl through these pages three years later, in the shook-up snow globe that is downtown Toronto, I see a connective thread. Even though I've catapulted from Uganda to the west coast of Canada to the Congo and back to Toronto.
Come, see where I've been.
See where I'm going.
