Let's see, conceived in Nova-Scotia, born in Newfoundland, raised in Québec an anglophone family in a French city, 2 years in Guelph Ontario, 1 yr in Vancouver BC, 6 months in Cali, 6 months in S.Africa, 6 months in Ecuador, 9 years in Caribbean, and finally, my now resting place, 5 years in Yukon.

I'm not sure if I could get used to eating bugs. It's like... if they're mudbugs or sea-bugs, that's one thing, but it's hard to imagine them tasting good…"
"I converted to paganism (through wicca, but didn't stay there) from xianity. During that conversion period, I tried to reconcile the beliefs, which ultimately, I couldn't. There are some who find a way (probably used to cherry picking, so…"
