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.)

Hi guys. It's Britt. I have a confession to make. 

Last year, I didn't vote. It was the 2010 Toronto municipal election, and I'd just returned from six months in Korea. My list of excuses is long: I was jet lagged, I'd just moved to a new riding and didn't know much about the candidates....but really, is there any excuse?

Not voting has had an effect on me. See, cause the thing is, whenever I don't like the way our city is being run, I feel like I can't complain. I feel guilty. 

On Thursday is Ontario's Provincial election. And you can bet your butt, I'm going to be at the polls nice and early. Nothing will stop me.

Love to you this weekend, story-makers. See you back here on Monday. 
Britt
