Life @ U of T



It's like a hug of encouragement. Letting me know that I'm going the right way.


I find it on the walk home

in the stillness,

of an empty street.

a cobblestone street in Sweden, with a row of houses to the left and a sidewalk with trees to the right

Or the bustle

of the city.

In a campus of students

learning how to be.

I find it in the conversations,

the sharing of stories,

with friends,

new and old.

a photo of me positioned to look like I'm conversing with a cartoon of a friendly surreal oblong creature painted on the wall

When the light of others,

radiates through them

as they do what they love.

I find it on the commute,

from here

to there.

In the travel to new places,

and the discovery of new spaces.

a sky full of clouds taken during a flight

Sometimes it sneaks up on me

when I least expect it.

Or goes into hiding

when the pressure is on.

But it always shows up

when I really need it.

Although I may mess up,





It’s like a hug

of encouragement.

Letting me know

that I’m going the right way,

that I must keep learning.
