My mom and I recently went to Disneyland & California Adventure and had an absolute blast!
We went on the Haunted Mansion ride first (obviously), and ended the day with the new Little Mermaid ride. This was my favorite Disney princess movie growing up…I was a bit obsessed. I sang the songs non-stop and would pretend to be in a world with flippers any chance I had. So going on a ride of childhood nostalgia = awesomesauce.
Unfortunately, my camera battery died just as we got to the ride, so I improvised and made a comic of the experience.
And just for kicks, go on the ride yourself!

I miss Eastern Canada today.
I wish I could pick wild raspberries and run barefoot through the fields like a confused hippy.
I long for the cold river rocks to form the buttons on my shirt, and the grand fir trees to transform into a collar and hug my neck. My skin will be replaced with wildflowers and the damp forest soil. And a wild fox will follow at a distance.
I belong to this world, and this world belongs to me.
I recently took a visit out to my grandmother’s ranch in Potrero California. It was a blast running around with dogs, catching grasshoppers, and making sure I didn’t step on any rattlesnakes (it is snake season after all). The temperature got to 90, but the cool mountain breeze made the dusty homestead a perfect playground.
Here are some highlights of my adventure.

I’ve been a bit M.I.A. the last couple of weeks, but I’m hoping this will make up for it. An emotional, sweet short from Spike Jonze.
