A butch and her backpack

Hello all,

hope the end of Summer,

is going your way.

It’s a little hot for my taste,


I know the Fall is coming,

the Fall,

my favourite season,

as I am prone to say:

butch season.


Perfect layering,


cap and boot season.

Happy sigh

Work has been tiring,

of late,

when it’s hot,

I don’t sleep well,

when I don’t sleep well,

I get cranky,

at work I hold it in,

which leads to the,



Still haven’t found,

my new,

career phase,

so I think I will stay,

where I am for a bit.

I have,


made a few resolutions,

more air,

more exercise,

that isn’t new,


I also want to travel.

I don’t have,

a lot of money,


I don’t drive,


I want to make a few trips,

to parts of Canada,

I have never seen.

First off,

next year,

Yellowknife, NWT.

I have  friends who live there,

I would like to visit,

I have never been,

to the North,

so the plan is,

mid September or mid October,

in 2016,


northern lights, aurora borealis, Yellowknife, NWT, The Lonely Planet guide to Yellowknife

I will be  out and about taking pictures,

meeting new people,

having new experiences,

I am pretty psyched about it.

Then it will be,





in a few years,

Vancouver and the BC coast and interior.

I know people all over Canada,

I am a no fuss house guest,

so maybe I can convince,

some people,

to let me crash on their couch,

for a day or two,

if not,

youth hostels and monasteries,

here I come.

I am excited about this plan,

it’s preliminary,

quasi embryonic,


it’s got me,



Portrait of me  by a young artist at the Mont-Royal sidewalk sale this weekend, I look younger and leaner and that is fine by me:-)

Have a great one.

Later girls,

I am a bookish butch in my mid early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream
