I was laying in the grass
and I saw one single bird
fly across my line of sight
sunlight glaring off it’s feathers
which were black
like my hair
spread around me like a halo
weaving through blades of grass
while the bird weaved
through the tree line
shrieking at the barn cat
things were simple.
I felt part
I didn’t feel
part of myself
just part of
outside of me
body lost below me
except to anyone else
left for me.
So I’ll just be grateful for birds (for now)
ones with wings that blend
into the night sky
of the new moon
ones that exist
simultaneously with the clouds
the trees even
when they need/want it,
the opposite of dissociating
the opposite of this
this existence I’ve tried
to opt out of
Check out my conversation with David Piccini, our MPP here in Northumberland.
We chat about what he loves about Northumberland, some of the policy he’s feeling excited about, and I communicate a few concerns I’ve heard about Conservative policy, which David gives his perspective on.
If you want to reach out to David, which I highly recommend doing (he’s super approachable and *BONUS* has a very cute dog who hangs out with him at his office), you can find his contact info here!

Check out my conversation with Val Russell and Lucy Caldwell, the director and lead actress from Northumberland Players‘ rendition of Silent Sky!
“The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications. Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
Silent Sky is the poignant tale of a woman’s dedication to the stars and the human touch that makes life under the cast sky beautiful and timeless. It is a beautiful and insightful piece of theatre.”
