The Purple Jacket – A Story About Dementia

November 5, 2016

I have known Luba* for the last few months. She is 77 and comes to the dementia day program daily; I see her once a week. When she started, she would tell me in English, “My English, not good.” It was pretty good. She could make simple conversation. She has the sweetest personality; she greets […]

Quest for the Perfect Gift

September 13, 2016

Sid and I have this wonderful tradition. He buys me presents and I return them to get something that suits my needs and personality more. Okay, it’s not that wonderful. But it’s a system and it works. However, he has been complaining that he doesn’t know what to buy me anymore, because apparently I am […]

A Crack at “Pop” Psychology

When I was growing up, the six of us – my mom, dad, sister, paternal grandparents and I – lived in a 2-bedroom flat. For the longest time, my sister and I shared our parents’ bedroom. When I turned 11, our parents began to insist we sleep in the living room; my sister and I […]

My mom would have turned 65 on May 30th. Sharing my birthday week with her used to be very exciting when I was younger. Now, it’s the worst thing ever. May is a hard month. My parents wedding anniversary was May 18th and then her birthday, followed by mine. I just feel blue and pissy. Over […]

We tried something new in bed

While the word “husband,” is still foreign to me, Sid and I have been married for five years and been together for nine. We can read each other’s minds and complete each other’s sentences. We have come a long way in our journey of harmoniously living together. While we still have the good fortune of […]

Of Messy, Yet Simple Things

April 2, 2016

It was a cold winter morning, in January 2015. I woke Sid up and pleaded with him to go with me to this little shop on Dundas that sells fountain pens – you know, ink pens, like from way back. It was the day I first felt a stirring to revive the good ol’ days, or […]
