canada oh canada






It was a drive in the sunshine with a camera to break in
It was a breakfast burrito at the halfway point
It was holding a baby named London and watching her sleep
It was laughing as two year old Ryen showed me how she breast feeds her baby doll like mommy does
It was getting reacquainted over salmon and salad
It was sharing in the boredom of Saturday synagogue
It was a luncheon of bagels and lox
It was a subway ride away from the suburbs
It was a quaint café in the middle of yorkville
It was a dinner of asian affair
It was late night chocolate martinis
It was small beds in big houses
It was brunch with babies and eggs
It was talks of philosophy and different religions
It was shop after shop of gladiator sandals and roots
It was pictures of bikes and capacinos and library staircases
It was a portugese feast of roast chicken and wine
It was a torte with a candle for 27 years
It was a night of little mermaid songs with dramatic interpretation
It was a morning of beds stripped and regretful goodbyes
It was a quiet drive home with a headaches and headphones
It was a bright welcome home to family watering lawns
It was a weekend ended fast with the preparations of a new week
It was unloading, unpacking and unwinding
It was buying milk and lettuce and strawberries
It was eating peanut butter and jelly for dinner
and wishing Toronto would have kept us for longer

Now I know what it means to have a lump in your throat. Thanks for writing this and thank Curtis for showing me how to find it.
