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.

Connaught school, the oldest in our city, will likely be torn down, its kids moved into something modern. My daughter cried at the news. And rumour is a picturesque shop on 13th has to go to make way for condos. And on the edge of Cathedral, the Plains Hotel was torn down two years ago to make way for a condo-hotel tower—tallest building in Saskatchewan we were told... Still waiting.

On my way for sushi last week, I noticed a store front that was vacant just a couple weeks ago was now occupied. Hanging over the sidewalk, there was a large sign with a buffalo painted on it. Buffalo? Buffalos are cool.

The Cathedral Village Arts Festival is about five weeks away. This! I think to myself every year. This is what I want Regina to be like all the time! Art lining the streets. Food from every nation available at every corner.

A denser Cathedral means restaurants can thrive here. And I hate to sound like my satisfaction with a place is determined by my stomach… but it kind of is.

My son is two and he loves trucks. I don’t get it. Our family doesn’t even own a car but he’s fascinated by anything with a motor. To satisfy his preoccupation, he and I have spent a great deal of time over the last several months standing around outside our local Safeway watching the heavy machines tear it down and rebuild it.
