• Cherries From Long Ago

      Micro-version: Pretend tea is served in tiny cups to children sitting on a perfect lawn. Cherries fall, while frills and ribbons sadly give way to realization. Ants and wasps go about their insect business. My grandfather had a perfect lawn, emerald green and soft like the fur of a cool animal. As children, we were to avoid playing on the lawn. We had the alleyway, and the scrubby grass that

      Delighted to introduce you to the first article in my new column #Untrending, published biweekly in the Maple Ridge News.

The tomatoes are roasting with thyme from the garden, olive oil and garlic. Later they'll be transformed into a Roasted
