Years ago, the festival took place on Gay Street…

Chop Chop! Symbolism associated with a womans haircut

Symbolism…..yes.  In my mind, there are multiple symbols that relate to this haircut. It was lunchtime on Thursday and I felt the need for some drastic change.  Maybe it was the monotony of the work week or perhaps the need for controlled change in my life. I called over to the trendy salon in my…

What do you get when you have a neighborhood with working farms, plenty of shopping, and delicious restaurants?  The suburbs!  Yes, that is where I live but I don’t generally think of “farms” when I think of the burbs.  I heard about a particular local farm that was a must to check out. Over the…
