I’ve got a nose for… L:A Bruket

The Merrymakers

labruket (1 van 2)

Me and my nose, a love affair, but not an easy relationship that is! I’ve always been sensitive when it comes to smells. Smells are memories to me. They can make or break a moment and they stay with me even after the years have passed by.
So when I buy soap, the first thing I do, is smell it. I know you’re not allowed to, but I’m the girl in the supermarket opening all the bath soaps, smelling them (spraying them into my nose most of the time, by accident), putting it back, reconsidering etc… A whole ordeal, but when I go home with the right smell, you’ll find me in a happy mood for the weeks to follow, until the bottle runs out and I start my ‘perfect smell hunt’ all over again, cause I like to change smells from time to time…
When it comes to hand…

< Part One

This part of Navigating the Justice System deals with a time in my life when my parents went to court and I didn’t, but I am including it in the middle of a three part series since it hinges them together. Here is what happened when my parents went to court:

When I was about 11, we were living in Ontario, where we had moved to get away from the court proceedings in Nova Scotia. However, my parents had been ordered to appear back in court in Nova Scotia. We had been going a conservative church in Ontario, for about a few months to a year. My parents talked to some of their friends in the church, and…

Gamer discovers his deceased father’s ghost on an old Xbox game, challenges it to a race

Aside from indirectly putting the phrase, “If you build it, they will come,” into the popular lexicon (the actual line in the movie is “If you build it, he will come”), the 1989 film Field of Dreams is remembered for the scene where the main character plays a game of catch with the spirit of his dead father. It’s a touching and emotional scene, but sadly the sort of thing that’s only possible with movie magic.

Tribes, camps and collectivism #JSWEC #JusticeforLB

Short post from me today because it’s Day 2 of #JSWEC, the morning after Social Care Curry and I’ve a workshop to run later today and I’m selling VivaCards, so lots and lots of reasons why this can’t be a long or detailed post. I offer that context to also point out that this is not a well considered or reflective post, it’s just me sharing where I’m at with the world.

Last week (following Bubbgate) I wrote a post about social cares love of a false dichotomy, this week I am seeing it invested on a micro level. Last night there was a panel debate at JSWEC on A Question of Social Work.
