  1. November in Canada, for the likes our Canadian treasure Margaret Atwood, is a love hate relationship… we linger too long in the seemingless endless summer and lament the fall we never had when we wake up to on mornings like this near the Canadian Rockies at -24 with a foot of snow. The crisp white awakening frosts at window panes and takes your breath, literally, the moment you breath it in. No colourful maple leaves on the grass or long walks in thick sweaters and jean jackets, just the stark emptiness of white that hides the things we forgot to pack away for the winter before it came. Layers upon layers, it looks so warm beneath the waves but don’t let it fool you, stay close, hold me. ❄️

  2. It is always heavier isn’t it? My post recently, at least my last Facebook Live was all about struggling and struggling with things emotionally as a mom and wife, artistically as a writer and as a new startup. It always seems that it comes in waves and things hit you all at once, to test you and see how much weight you can carry. I have to learn that the things I can’t bury I must give away, and to try not to control things that are beyond my control. My how that is an incredibly difficult thing to do. I’m so glad I read this and I’m so glad you posted it, I feel like I needed to see it as a reminder. That it’s okay to let things go. Bury things that are not useful or helpful. Just focus on what is. Sometimes what remains is so much heavier than you expect. Thank you for posting this.
