My daily commute is like a small gear of mechanical time, of epicycles upon epicycles, where days turn to months and to years, and the seasons cycle through. The rhythms of time are constant, but the changes they bring are not.

The neighborhood of Broma in Vancouver (around Broadway and Main) used to have salmon streams and a temperate rainforest. Now it has hipsters.

Queer Banffites come in every stripe but, like other wildlife, most of us are well-camouflaged.

In my neighborhood, houses float out to sea. They’re jacked up from their foundations, lifted onto trucks, and barged away.

The thaw has officially begun in Edmonton and I’m beginning to see more people outside in our neighbourhood starting their spring cleaning. Some may even start taking down their Christmas decorations from last year. In this part of the country you take your decorations down in April and put them back up in September.

A corner store within walking distance is a wonderful thing, one that not all of Edmonton’s residential neighbourhoods can boast of. When I first moved to Castledowns there was no corner store, just an old gas station and an empty parking lot in a nearby strip mall.

Mrs. Ash had been living in the neighborhood for the last 25 years, ever since the city expropriated her last home so they could build a road through it. She was known around the block for her beautiful gardens.

I do wonder what the other neighbours think of us. In terms of things that are changing in our neighbourhood, my girlfriend and I are it. They didn’t see many ‘For Sale’ signs very often before the one popped up on the house my girlfriend eventually bought. People all around us have lived in their houses for over twenty years.
