#grandma Lillian, #mom @maryloudodd9815, me at 6 years old & my #babysister @tarabella7: right before I got on a plane and spent my first summer in Italy, without my parents! Nonna, zio Carlo, zio Gerardo & Auntie Maria, Zio Mario & Zia Rita took good care of me during what was my foremost formative cultural inspiration! #1990 #memories

My cousins are getting remarried, so it’s time to visit our family’s #romancatholic #parish! This is the #church where my parents were married, I was baptized, had my first holy communion, was reconciled, confirmed, and all my family’s funerals et cetera are here at #chiesa #santamariagoretti, named after an 8 year old girl who committed suicide rather than be married to her elderly uncle... (it’s right across the parking lot from #commonwealthstadium on the edge of the #McCauley / #littleitaly neighbourhood here in #Edmonton)... OMG I FORGOT HOW MONOTONOUS & DEPRESSSING #italianchurch SERVICES ARE HERE! But I remember almost all the harmonies in the hymns (although the choirmaster seems to have forgotten), I LOVE the taste of #Jesus’s body in wafer form & I’m one of the tallest people here = #silverlining #recoveringcatholic #italiancanadian... I can’t help but thinking of all the times, happy & sad, I’ve spent in this #holybuilding, and can only imagine the future memories to be made here... #amen!

It’s #winter! This #log is #burningonbothends
Just a couple #cute signs, then a cute picture of me in a #widebrimmedhat. #humpday... just wanted to post something, anything to kill the boredom waiting at government offices.

A #fakeflowers #floralarrangement, with a couple each of #redroses, #morningglories & #cannabis leaves that I “cultivated” quite some years ago: resting in a spooky #vase that I crafted during the crises years of my #teenagewasteland
The #accidentalbeach of #edmonton up close... the water, the sand, then a closeup showing the coal-rich sands of his beautiful spot in the stunning #northsaskatchewanriver valley
#beforeandafter of my #childhoodplayhouse for a #happycanadianthanksgiving...but please take the time to consider how to #decolonize yourself!!! #canada #thanksgiving #fallintowinter
My #maternalgrandfather Douglas Dodd & his father. He was a real hoot, I don’t think he minded me giving his memorial a #spitshine... #restinpeace grandpa
I left a few traces of my existence behind in #parcex, notably these #foamwigs I’ve had for over 13 years & only used a handful of times... #storyofmylife... hopefully the #imprint I’ve made on #montreal has been greater & more positive #lol... photo par @peacheslepage
