From the heart land

Posted By on Mon, Jul 31, 2017 at 12:00 PM

I love(d) you, and I miss you. Some times it hits me, out of nowhere, dead centre of my chest.

This raspy ache, perches on my collarbone and rests in my throat. Days to months to year, and what a dark year. Sometimes I tell myself it was all for the best, a blessing in disguise, that moving saved my life. But fuck that, I'd rather be in love. —I Know, I Should Be Over You

Hey M

Posted By on Wed, Jul 26, 2017 at 12:05 PM

I love you so much. You're my partner, my best friend and I treasure every day with you whether it's Donair Thursdays or out at the Neptune. You're silly, gross (in the best way), romantic, adventurous and it's cliche—but I don't know what I would do without you. I hope I get to see your face when you read this. —Your Pet

You appeared as if by magic, and then you disappeared. You have reappeared when I least expect but not when I wish you would. You've taught me to love the magic and mystery of the universe. If I could only cast a spell on you it would be to let yourself trust the magic of the universe. —Wendy

From my beautiful coworkers and friends to my hilarious and supportive family and partner to the anonymous individuals who share their presence with me in passing on the road or the bus or in cafe lineups—I am so filled with gratitude for the people I am surrounded by and I love you all! Be kind to one another and smooch each other on the cheek more often. —One Smiley Gal

Welcome home

You've been gone for decades.  Now you return, after partying your way through TO for the last few weeks.  Bring us you—tired, bleary and with your cross-eyed kitty—and we'll give you our beaches, a vibrant North End, new musicals and theatrical horizons and a family thrilled to see you home. Donairs after you unpack! —Two little kids and the fabulous O-girls

A love letter from a tiny sapling

Posted By on Fri, Jul 14, 2017 at 12:00 PM

Hey bub (yes, you!). I'm hoping that maybe you will read this on a lazy Saturday or Sunday morning while I'm away at work. Maybe you're snuggling with our kitties, or maybe you're getting high and enjoying the comforts of our new mattress and bed (which you built for us!). Whatever it is you're up to, remember that I love you, that we're soulmates, that you're my very best friend, and we will always have each other. I hope you have the best day, and where ever I am, I am counting the minutes until I get to see you again. I love you. —A

The sweetest pair

Posted By on Wed, Jul 12, 2017 at 12:05 PM

Once in a while I see a man on his bike around Cunard or Bell Road, with a red trailer following behind. There’s no kid in the trailer—but an adorable beagle. He’s usually going by too quickly for me to get my phone out and take a video, but believe me when I say it is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen. I saw him at the Common on Tuesday and thought about saying hi, but I was too shy. If you are reading this, please know you and your dog make my day whenever I see you two riding along. —Beagle Admirer

You made my Canada Day

Posted By on Thu, Jul 6, 2017 at 12:00 PM

To the four ladies that ask if they could join me on the bench to enjoy their meal from ribfest, you made my Canada Day! I was going to go home but joining you for beers at the Stubborn Goat maybe my night. My only regret was not getting your number. Hopefully we will meet at again. — The Guy Without The Boat

Sorry, little lady

Posted By on Wed, Jul 5, 2017 at 12:00 PM

To the little blonde at the Common who told me to have a happy Canada Day, who I gave a grave look to, who responded with a look of shock, maybe dread even...

I'm sick, just wanted some fireworks footage, was miserable among everyone there and right before you said that, I thought "I can't get along with anyone,” which was then proven.

You didn't do anything wrong. I’m an asshole. —Piece of gutter shit
