an onset of nostalgia

For the month of December I decided to challenge myself with the way I communicate on social media. I got the opportunity to display my work at the Pape/Danforth Public Library in my hometown of Toronto. This meant a lot to me and I wanted to find ways to express why. I wrote about various things I loved about reading and writing and which books mean the most to me. I noticed that stories I shared of my childhood memories connected with people the most. I thought I’d share a few more:

• I have a leaf shaped scar on the crease of right my wrist from trying to catch a butterfly in tall grass.

• My first bike was purple and it was called the panther; my parents surprised me with it.

• My mom taught me how to knit when I was 5 and the first thing I made was a lumpy forest green sweater for my Barbie.

• The first thing I remember painting is a tree.


Reading: The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

Listening to: Whitney Houston

Plotting: something cozy and something that gives back.
