Lantzville Flowers

Last summer Jenny Dawson began her journey selling self-grown, organic flowers from her farm in Lantzville. Her enthusiasm for finding a balance between business and sustainability was obvious when I spoke with her on her farm. “It’s a hobby that will take me into retirement,” Dawson said to me as we strolled around the eleven … Continued

Meditating the Anxieties Away

2020 has been an unforgettable year, and it’s not even over yet. The entire world has been shaken up on account of COVID-19, not to mention the murder hornets, protests, and wildfires (to name just a few).

Isolation Playlist

Well, I can’t believe the academic year has gone by already. With COVID-19 taking over the spring semester (and everything else), I think it’s been hard for any of us to concentrate, particularly on our studies. But we’re almost there.

The City We Became: A Book Review

The business of becoming a city is a long and arduous one, and not even New York emerges unscathed. An otherworldly force, in the shape of the Woman in White, seeks to take advantage of New York City’s insecurity and quash it while it is still too weak to defend itself. Or rather, itselves.

Ode to Greta

O’ earth, my muse, tell me of your young heroine who travelled far by catamaran. She suffered her own education in rage and fire to torment governments and corporations far and wide.

Gorgeous Cinema: The Gentlemen

“It’s cinema and it’s gorgeous,” are a few of the first words uttered by Hugh Grant’s character, Fletcher, in this slick, meta-fictive gangster flick, and no truer words have been said by a cinematic character since the turn of the millennium.
