So "Songs for the Holy Other" a collection of hymns Affirming The LGBTQIA2S+ Community is a thing and I gotta say, I very much love it.

To me it seems a clear effort to be faithful, contextual in the best way, scriptural, thoughtful, inspiring and a bit humorous at times.

I'm anticipating the snow-pocalypse; that time of year, when after watching the sidewalks and bike lanes fill up since spring, the snow comes and all the people disappear.

I will smile at all the commuting students, scooter riders and patio goers for the next few weeks because the next few months are about to become very cold and lonely on the morning commute.

While these chestnuts and husks are fun for the kids to play with I really wish the University had planted an edible variety

I had such a great birthday, unfortunately I'll have to wait another whole year to enjoy another

So much to love about

Visually stunning, well acted and thoughtful story and character development plus nostalgia factor.

Mostly, as I approach the last birthday of my 30's I'm hoping to emerge into my own

Also I'm officiating a wedding today and am more than a bit conflicted about that.

A difficult day for me to be in Canada. Our national church synod yesterday decided our definition of marriage will not include same sex couples.

The pain of our LGBTQ2S+ members who had spoken so inspiringly during the debate was heart breaking.

This morning the tears have not ended but have changed as those same members rallied the assembly to sing praises to God who is love and calls us to love. I'm hopeful for the next discussions and prayers.

A long awaited trip to the mountains is finally here!!

It has been an incredible few weeks with months of work coming fruition.

Time to rest, refresh, and fill my lungs with air at altitude.

I celebrated a renewal of vows with the most lovely couple yesterday. Many difficult and joyful years with a fruitful love that abounded through it all.

Fruitful because they created such loving and connected community from neighbours and such deep family from strangers.

I'm a bit dismayed by how long it has been since I've posted.

I've tried to think of this space as a place to reflect, to muse and share beauty.

I have no doubt that I've known those things in abundance and variety recently but illness, the demands of daily life and a touch of malaise have kept the fleeting thoughts from finding their way here.

I'm hoping a new routine with the Spring/Summer will help me catch the fleeting moments.

AB Politics 

Happy election day fellow Albertans!!

Another opportunity to choose who oppresses us for the next 4 years

Honestly though I love voting and do try to be as actively involved politically as possible between the polling opportunities.

I'm also looking forward to tonight's coverage far more than the GOT season premier.

It was an honour today to speak with an Indigenous Studies class at Concordia. Inspiring to hear how they are living reconciliation and healing.

I'm so thankful for the hard work of generations that has finally brought us to a post TRC Canada.

I liked the snow better on my lawn, rather than in my basement 🌊

My 3yr old daughter's dream is apparently to grow up to live in an apartment near a bus stop.

I couldn't be more proud.

2019 is the International Year of Indigenous Languages - here's how you can get involved from @superlinguo
