Friends Woo The Insider 


The praises of beauty flowed through How slowly and beautifully I cried too While I was thinking our past present future You were thinking you the earth And I the moon   I think sometimes Whether it is the right place right time But this time is also a time Where I would recall the bond Between nickel and dime   These memories of the past And fabrications of the future Are nothing more than the daydreams of my present   I lust for entanglement You confuse in bad judgment…

That Infamous Four-Letter Word

Love. It is such a driving force in our world; in our lives. It has the power to start wars and demolish empires. In stories and myths, some people have been so desperate to have it that they have sold their souls for even a fraction of the feeling. In the Greek myths of old, poor Orpheus couldn’t save Eurydice but he did journey to the depths of Hades to find her.  There is a reason that most songs are love songs or merely love songs in disguise.

Writing in Color Black History Month Voices

The need for the words coconut, honey, caramel, chocolate, and coffee to describe a character of color in a story is still a mystery in mind as…

We tend to often learn about black history in the U.S. while we remain completely oblivious to the rich cultural heritage of the Black community in Montreal. It is important to use this month to celebrate black achievement and resilience In the late 18th century, numerous black immigrants from the West Indies and the United States arrived in Montreal’s Little Burgundy borough when racial segregation was outlawed in Canadian law…
