Watch to SmartWatch

I wore a watch since my 8th birthday until a few years after my brain injury when my skin and tolerance to skin irritation made me take it off. I figured I’d use TTC clocks (OK, hard to see after they upgraded to those screens), city clocks (where are they‽), or my Palm, later my iPod Touch to check the time.

I calmed my skin down several ...

2023 – 23 Years Since Y2K’s Car Crash-Caused Brain Injury

Clunky title. Kind of like the dull, monstrous bang of a car thundering into another car, stopping dead. Today is the 23rd anniversary of that sound times three. Twenty-third. That’s an unreal number. It seems absurd that I’d still be suffering from a brain injury, that the number of my years as an adult with brain injury exceeds the number ...

Individual Climate Action

As an individual, climate action begins in the home. Some have no control over what they can do in their homes, but many of us do. I figured I was the former until my gas furnace began dying and a neighbour brought up the possibility of replacing it with a heat pump. Hmmm. Was that really doable? In England, I’ve learnt air-to-water heat pumps ...

Adeline Kitty “Addi” Jeejeebhoy, 17 November 1932 to 29 November 2022

I don’t remember when I first met Addi Jeejeebhoy, but our last conversation is sewn into my heart. Technically my cousin, I always saw her as my Aunt. It was a Sunday when we last spoke. I’d finished my usual exercise and chores for the day and collapsed into my big chair. I called Addi on my new iPhone. With no headphone jack, I held its ...
