I’ve been a fan of @monique.aura’s work for a long time and am so honoured by this illustration, based on @jensquiresphotographer’s photo! Check out Aura’s work ✨✨✨ #Repost @monique.aura ・・・ Illustration of @christacouture inspired by @jensquiresphotographer 💜remember to create for yourself💜
Sometimes it’s hard to decide which holiday rituals to do with a little one, weighing out what my childhood experiences were with my adult thinking, but at least I know we can always change our minds. So this year, we bought reusable eggs to hide (and hide things in — for now, crackers!) — and “hid” them places she could find. She was very serious about collecting them all and it was delightful! I’m glad to think about and celebrate spring, flowers, change, and growth. 🥚

A mystery! I received this incomplete card with these stunning flowers and would love to know how the note was supposed to end, so I can thanks for the thanks. Who out there knows who sent me flowers?
TOMORROW (Friday) on @cbcradio, the episode of Tapestry I guest-hosted on how to live with grief will be rebroadcast, 5pm across Canada and online! Features interviews with @emilymcdowell_ and @thegriefcast 😭❤️
Here I am SIGNING MY BOOK DEAL. With thanks to Stephanie Sinclair at @transatlantic_agency, @douglasmcintyre2013 has the North American rights to my memoir “How to Lose Everything.” I cant quite believe it, and I’m also so ready.
When this album came out, I wrote a stack of postcards every month for a year with the stories behind the songs. The album is three years old today! And so I'm sharing those postcards online — link in bio.
Collaborating with @megwegwksitqamuk last summer on collecting and making sounds for these pots they made (😍💪🏼) was an expanding experience — I learned much, and being connected to all the works in the exhibit was so meaningful. From Louis: #Repost @megwegwksitqamuk ・・・ A piece created in collaboration with @christacouture and brought to life here by a dear friend. Clay, for me, is very much about being connected to my home territory through my body and by creating what I need for this life. It’s about being Mi’kmaq as much as it is being Acadian, being Irish, and how these ancestors speak through me. A singular person with multiple origins. Working with Christa on these pieces opened new meanings by bringing to the forefront our experiences of disability and how this manifests in our lives and relations. . . .

It wasn’t until I discovered @mamacaxx (and her 🔥 style) that I considered lopping off one pant leg — I’ve anyways just worn skirts or dresses. But thanks to @pocket.alchemy’s sewing skills, I’ve got a stash of new one legged styles! 😎 #amputee #ampbeauty #oneleg #cyborg
