• My mother says, "It takes more muscles to frown than to smile." In the same breath she sutures my lips, Staples commisure to tragus, And prays my voice box withers. • Today, she is not angry. She does not spit acid, Revoke our names for curses, And cry to god for strength. • The blood from my lips fall, Staining this hand-me-down shirt, And mixing with the mud from yesterday's play. I remind myself that Jesus was silent too And this is my crown of thorns. • My mother is a riddle Not even she can solve. We hold our breath in hope We will only inherit good days. -c.copland • • #mymother #frowning #handmedowns #poetrycommunity #poetry #christianroots #queersraisedbychristians #canadianpoet #canadianwriter #writingcommunity #writersofig #writersofinsta #depression #mentalhealth
its okay, im invisible a silhouette of my friends too much of a ghost or too little of a personality for i lock myself away in the darkness of my mind where words fester and hate grows but not for the people who overlook but for me who does not speak. 11/21/2017 (7:22pm) ~~~~~~~~~~ hi guys I'm back and trying to write more.. what I wrote has been a real issue of mine, I overthink and cause myself pain because I can't open myself up to people. connecting with people has always been a struggle because i hold so much fear about what people will think of me. its definitely been one of my biggest insecurities.. how about you guys? #tmswriter
Toronto. World peace. #PrayforToronto #TorontoStrong #earthstrong #jsaunders ◇ Don't tell me I'm young with so much life ahead of me because of my age. Life is not determined by a number and if it was, there still wouldn't be one big enough without someone saying, they were too young to have passed. Life is short, live yours to the fullest. City of Toronto and people around the world, you're in my prayers.

Best read I’ve had in a while. I really loved this book. It was hard to read at times, but the subject matter combined important Canadian history to acknowledge (residential schools) and a love of hockey. So easy to read and beautifully written. #richardwagamese #residentialschools #readmore #canadianwriter #canadianhistory
CrimsonInkPoetry.com | daily quote from contributor Ryan! #quoteoftheday #qotd
I have been listening to Barbara Bush’s eulogies .. in awe, and wonder.. To me.. the real “story”( hopeless romantic I am) ❤️❤️is the love story.. what is truly possible when two people respect and admire each other.. 💙💙Soulmates are “created”.. it’s not “instantaneous” It’s deciding to make it happen.. it’s seeing the person in front of you in all their vulnerability, flaws.. and loving them anyway.. it’s “thanking God” every day.. they love you back .. it’s support, praise, “being ones own person” while being a “team”..it’s truly wanting the others “happiness” before your own.. and trusting the same is true.. of the other.. it’s “growing old” looking at each other’s souls.. ..”not giving up”... not expecting perfection.. being amused by each other.. that’s called a CONNECTION... ( we call it love.. and that screws us up) .. If we can’t define it .. we assume it’s “gone”.. A true connection never dies.. I am so inspired.. and so grateful I have a chance to have it.. for whatever amount of time we are given .. 73 years.. wow.. I will take 3.. 6.. or 36.. because I know.. it’s real .. focus on CONNECTIONS.. that’s a life well lived.. I am determined .. #barbaraandgeorgebush #connection #relationshipgoals #whywearehere #reallife #dontgiveup #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #choosehimeveryday #vulnerability #imperfect #beyourownperson #lovestories #nyclife #nyc #whatreallymatters #nycwriter #nycblogger #ibelieve #upperwestsidenyc #somoving #centralparkwest #centralparknyc #centralparkbarre #nycwoman #canadianwriter ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I love and enjoy people who can make me effortlessly laugh. You know the ones that come from the stomach; the ones you feel as though your soul has detached from your body just to laugh because it couldn't stay where it is. Thank God for people like that. | | #smallie #canadianblogger #canadianwriter #writersphotography

#notmypresident .. and the “crisis” that is children in El Salvador... Happy children at the community centre (photo: V. Carballo) Happy children at the community centre (photo: V. Carballo) In El Salvador, the reported HIV rate is comparatively high, averaging out at 0.8 per cent. There are approximately 29,000 Salvadorans are living with HIV/AIDS, among them many children. Most people with HIV in an advanced stage have no access to anti-retroviral medication. At a striking 20 per cent, HIV prevalence is extremely high among street children, which can partly be ascribed to the fact that nearly half of all the commercial sex workers in the country's capital are underage. #soschildrensvillages .. helping with education, a place to be, and hope.. this is not a “shithole” #trumptweets ... this is human life...#elsalvador 🇸🇻 #children #childrenshealth #hiv #savingchildren #mydaughterandme #ouradventure #sograteful #nycwriter #nycblogger #nycwomen #womenhelpingwomen #upperwestsidenyc #centralparkwest #centralparknyc #centralparkbarre #backtomorrow #canadianwriter ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️💔💔💔💔💔💔
Soulmates don't always have to be romantic, you know? They can be platonic too, like one of your friends. That doesn't make it any less special. Society really fixates on the idea of romantic soulmates but personally I think platonic ones are better.

Monday motivation for all you beautiful people out there today. This was something I had to tell myself over and ver in early sobriety but now it’s just a reminder of where I came from. ❤️. And is Monday really that bad? I mean, it’s just trying it’s best too. 😁 . . . . . . . . #thepoetrybandit #mondaymotivation #mondayquotes #mondaymood #mondayvibes #motivationmonday #dontgiveup #thankyousomuch #langley #beautifulbc #toronto_insta #yvr #yyc #yeg #jonlupin #canadianwriter #writersofinstagram #poemas #poets #poetsofinstagram #bymepoetry #omypoetry #untwineme #poesía #langleyfresh #vancitybuzz #vancityhype #vancouverwriters #amwriting #lovequotes
There are some days, I look at the world, With such wonder, And elation, Then there are some where, I peek past my eyes lids, With hesitation, We have all been hurt, We are all healing, Maybe we can move closer to hope, Continue trying on Believing, Because there’s magic to be felt, No matter the cards you’ve been dealt, A sad story, Doesn’t equal, A sad life. Keep tending to your heart, Even in the dark.
When things start to get hectic, as they often do, my husband and I make an effort not to let the stress of Monday mornings be our downfall. Unless he has an early meeting we take an hour (or half) and go for coffee. We started this tradition in Warsaw and it has benefited us ever since. My week never begins in a stressful way but rather in a calm and dignified way. . . . . #mondaymotivation #styleontheside #canadianblogger #canadiangirl #polishgirl #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #womenwriters #canadianwriter #torontoblogger #paris #streetphotography #igersparis_select #pariscafe #monmarte #avioning #torontowriter #40plusblogger #passportready #postcardsfromtheworld #instapassport #mystory #mylife #instastory #storiesfromtheroad #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger

This week's piece is titled, "Identity Politics in the Tamil Diaspora." It can be challenging enough navigating citizenship as a Westernised Other who is trying to decolonise herself. Add the challenges of belonging to a specific diaspora of people(s) and wow -- it's no wonder that it takes some of us multiple lifetimes to figure ourselves out 😂 . .

A few more revisions and I get to reveal the cover of my upcoming book. The count down is about to begin and I'm super excited to share my story with you all. Stay tuned!! #bookrelease #booksofinstagram #SecondChances #jsaunders
So much about motherhood has refined me. But one of the biggest things has been knowing my value and loving myself. I wrote a bit about coming to terms with my own perfectionism and critical spirit in my weekly column. Link in bio :)
It's a true story #rp #jsaunders
My next book is a 192-page hardcover. It chronicles the travels of three famous photographers in 1957. A total of 300 high-quality images of steam locomotives in Ontario, Canada. The book has gone to the printer and we will be doing press approvals in a couple of days. . . . . . #steamrailway #steamlocomotive #steamtrain #railway #railways #railwayphotography #railroad #railroads #railroadphotography #ontario #historicontario #canadiana #canadianwriter #canadianwriters #oldtrain #oldtrains #1950s #1957 #fifties #photography #photographer #speedgraphic #speedgraphics #writing #canadianauthor #history #pictorial #narrative #masterpiece #collectorsitem
When everything is going well.. we don’t “try”.. (reread your sociology book .. I am right).. Humans have to fall.. its our “fight or flight” biology ...and so I did.. and you would think that losing a partner to cancer would “do it”.. but no.. I just wanted “ to fill the hole”.. “growing” was too painful.. I justified I had enough pain.. ok.. that didn’t work out very well.. 😳. I had to be “grateful” for what I had left.. what I could become and the whole damn loss.. hard to do when you don’t want to have that damn loss.. I “suffered”.. (I mistook the suffering for pain..ha!). I caused the suffering.. 10 years later.. I only recognize parts of that woman .. she was “nice”.. she believed people .. she thought life and single motherhood was a “TV movie”.. she didn’t realize “chapter two and three” had to be earned.. she never stopped to say..”fuck this .. here’s what I want ..) So she fell.. and got up.. ( whining.. but) until one day.. the words...”this is not worthy of me”.. came out .. and she stopped apologizing .. ( as most women do .. as we don’t want to be “arrogant”)😔😔. She made a plan..decided to except nothing less.. and set out to find it.. hoping her daughters would learn by watching .. That.. is the plan .., or as I say LOUDLY “FUNCTIONAL PEOPLE ONLY.. be my equal or my “better”.. and I will spend my time developing my passions and talents .. and thank “god” ( or “godette”) for the loss .. and I will GAIN.. ( and lose again.. but now I know.. that’s all in the “plan”).. I WOKE UP.. like 6 cups of mental “nitro brew” woke up.. ..and the only mistakes I made happened ( and will happen) when I didn’t think I was “enough”.... all together now .. “Fuck you.. I am more than enough ...maybe you should try it..#youwantapieceofme 😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉😉#sunday #sundayvibes #iwokeup #assertive #selfworth #selfworthquotes #whoiam #myattitude #mylifesofar #thestorysofar #whatiwant #passion #talents #dontsettle #dontstop #loss #grateful #nycwriter #nycblogger #writeon #writersofinstagram #rememberme #centralparkwest #centralparknyc #upperwestsidenyc #donttreadonme #nycwomen #canadianwriter 😉😉😉😉😉😉❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Have you ever seen a city before the masses are awake, when only the street cleaners are out, maybe a few souls who have early shifts and some late night revelers who are on their way home. That is the magic moment. There is a stillness in the air, it's peaceful, the city seems to be taking a breath and if you watch carefully you can actually see the energy starting to build. This morning a flock of Canada Geese woke me up at 5:30 am whith a very heated, very loud discussion. . . . . . #styleontheside #canadianblogger #arcdetriomphe #parisianstyle #igersparis_select #polishgirl #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #womenwriters #canadianwriter #torontoblogger #torontowriter #40plusblogger #passportready #streetphotography #canadiangirl #travelgirl #avioning #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #writerscommunity #mystory #mylife #instapassport #postcardsfromtheworld #streetlife #parisdream #seetheworld

Even though I work from home I still get that giddy feeling when it's Friday! I rarely sleep in. I'm one of those annoying people who wakes up raring to go. It's fine when you are traveling because there is so much to see and do but I think, when we are home, my husband sometimes wants to throw me off the balcony. 😂 Until summer actually shows up I'm traveling around Europe in my head! . . . . #styleontheside #canadianblogger #canadiangirl #polishgirl #writerslife #writer #writersofinstagram #womenwriters #canadianwriter #torontoblogger #paris #streetphotography #igersparis #writerscommunity #torontowriter #40plusblogger #passportready #traveltheworld #postcardsfromtheworld #instapassport #mystory #mylife #avioning #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #mystory #storiesfromtheroad #igersparis_select
