This is one of my favourite photos taken of me in 2019 (you’d be right to guess that all my other favourites also feature Henry and/or his big sister Rose), and as this decade comes to a close I thought I’d share it. This is me wearing Henry (then 6 months old) onstage the main event on November 2 at the Words Aloud Festival in Durham, Ontario. I’m performing poems from my book The Brightest Thing, and Henry is napping. Typical.

I hope the next year, the next decade, will offer me more moments like these ones, and I hope, too, to share them with you.

Thanks to Greg Santos for the photo. (Please read Greg’s poetry. It’s phenomenal.)
