A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: The Great Donkey Search

Hi guys. It's Britt. Two days ago, my sisters and I set off to find the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada

That's right, you heard me, the National Sanctuary for all donkeys!! 

When I first heard about this, (right after I giggled), I knew we had to locate it, this refuge, this resting place for forgotten and abandoned donkeys. Those donkeys had lived full lives! They had stories! So off we went. Along the way, we came across many different folks...

Are you a donkey?   

Are you a donkey?
 Then, just when we'd had enough of unexpected traffic, detours, and loosing our way, we crested a hill and there they were!

Looking every bit as relaxed and carefree as we'd hoped. 

 And we were too.

My sisters, Aly and Rach, post-donkey sighting.
 Get out there this weekend, story makers. And bring us back a good one!! 



  1. What a crazy creature! I'd love her as a country companion. This looks like it was a fun day.

  2. Jon Bon is looking every so lovely.
