“The Dungeon”

***
In the great scope of my life, right now – in this moment! – I am here.
I am not an ordinary person. This is not an ordinary experience.
And for this, I honour myself, this space, and this time.
I am so fortunate to be here, in this moment,
and I choose to celebrate this every day.

(Leap)

In late September of 2016, Hurricane Matthew ravaged a tremendous part of southern North America. Its effects were felt locally – Toronto’s boat-dwelling marina folks were told to batten down our hatches. The winds were very very strong. Here is a strange drawing I drew of myself as I sat in the window of my houseboat watching the spoils.

The morning after, I spoke about the storm with a neighbour. He shared that he had been living on boats his whole life and that he’d weathered many storms on the open water. I was moved by his stories and felt grateful that we in Toronto had it so easy against what was being revealed internationally. Five months later, I traveled to Haiti to assist in a grassroots rebuilding of that freshly devastated nation.

The conversation I’d had with that neighbour about Hurricane Matthew was the first time we’d shared anything personal and it forged a new familiarity between us. On this day three years ago I returned from my trip to Haiti. On this day three months ago, my boat neighbour very suddenly passed away.

“KW – I had one of those epic, sweeping dreams last night and you were in it. Dreams are impossible to describe as it’s most about tone, but you worked at this amazing, weird old-school photo developing factory. Like Kodak, but totally Willy Wonka. You snuck me in and I wandered around. Got swept up by this amazing, non-harming chemical bath, which was fun, not scary. So much more to it. At the end of the work day a co-worker of yours spoke to me in an Irish accent. So my logical brain was clearly keeping track of the real world. It was an awesome adventure type dream.”
