Get Cozier With Hozier

Wondering who I copy
Mustering some tender charm
She feels no control of her body
She feels no safety in my arms

I’ve no language left to say it
But all I do is quake to her
Breaking if I try convey it
The broken love I make to her

All that I’ve been taught
And every word I’ve got
Is foreign to me

“I figure life’s a gift, and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you – to make each day count…”

Being Grateful, Being Thankful



Two of my best friends are getting married to each other. Their love is something that I have been able to witness for almost three years. Their love is kind, supportive, inclusive, and whole. It makes my heart happy to see the happiness and excitement in them both as they move to this next step.

They are people who have really impacted my life positively and I am so thankful to know them. I knew the fiancé first, since we were kids. When I moved to Kamloops he was one of the only people I knew. When he met the fiancée, he introduced me to her and I gained a new best friend. I will always be grateful for their love as it brought love and friendship to me in a new town.


They are true partners and taking this journey together just makes perfect sense.

Congratulations RH and CR.

Will Work For Change

When something hits at your heart and causes your passion to burn bright it can help you determine that you are on the right path. Social Work is the profession for me. I want to work in so many areas that I don’t even know where to start… that’s not true, I am starting with my degree… but from there, who knows. a7f1b678d5e9ca8cbd92f14dd8016148
