And for you, Gil

This morning I found out from Twitter that Jonathan Crombie had passed away. Crombie is best known for playing the most perfect Gilbert Blythe there will ever be. Hearing that he had died brought tears to my eyes. I’d never met the man, but through dozens of viewings of the Kevin Sullivan miniseries I had …

A 24/7 gig

I am a mother. For good or ill, it does define me. Mother isn’t all that I am, but it’s a 24/7 gig. I am all the mother my child has, and neither her life nor mine will be the same for it. – T.F. Charlton I am still reading through the essays in The …
