Exhibition, Toronto, Ontario, Canada:

I am, very happily, inviting everyone who can to stop past the Agincourt Library in Scarborough during December to see some of the pictures and poems you first saw here. Each pair has been printed as one piece on museum-grade Baryta paper and framed. Continue reading

Of Mothers (and their dreams)

For all those who love and mother children and work to create a better world, though sometimes you work against all the odds, sometimes in circumstances many cannot even imagine – including in the midst of persecution, war and starvation. Thank you for your courage; may you win your battle.

There comes a time
When children learn
Their mothers dream
An aching dream,
A beautiful dream
Of a kind world
Where their children
Can grow and learn
And be,
One where peace
Is normal
Where people act
With forethought
And compassion.
And when they
Do not find it
They set about
To create this world,
So their own children
And children not their own
May grow together,
May find joy together,
May create together,
May look
Hopeful and fearless
Into the future.
Theirs is
A lifelong dream,
A lifelong struggle;
They pass the torch
One to another
To light a dark way,
Share their candles
In the darkness
Until together
Their light burns
Bright and hot
As the sun,
Give and borrow
The strength they find
To continue
The loving task.
Thank you
To the mothers,
Loved, loving,
Known, unknown,
Dedicated…
