This Is Why, Why We Fight

(title borrowed without permission from The Decemberists)

Photos taken today at a protest at the Alberta Legislature where the Conservative Party is cutting $40million in funding to adults with disabilities.  They are hoping they can take from the already funded because they are voiceless.  And yet, the police presence was heavy.

Alberta, you leave me with a heavy heart.  This is wrong.  So incredibly and horribly wrong.

A is for Another Kind Of Building Block

So this building block has been kicking around my car for months.  I've paid it no heed, as lots of kid-related stuff kicks around my car.  I clean it out a couple of times a year.  More often than that is just frustrating because kid clutter re-accumulates so quickly.
Yesterday, my stepson picked it up and started reading out the words on the blocks...  Check it out.  Dunno how this thing ended up in my car (investigation leads me to a company in Texas that hand makes them) but it's one cool ass kid toy that I'm totally about to block print!

On the Maniacal block, I managed to make out, in the teensiest of letters, "Xylocopa Design."  Turns out there's a whole set of these building blocks to be had and they are all freaking awesome.

Check 'em out:

The Bridge At Duxbury With Wildebeasts

Shot in February.  Freshly edited today.  This is Jen's favourite place on earth.  Or rather, "favorite," because  it's her place.

Sneak Peek

From an art piece I'm working on about my depression, anxiety, autism, their convergences, divergences, and the experience of feeling simultaneously sad and insane.
