• What it Means to be a Maker

    November 24, 2017 Kate

    It’s not about scale or automation. Passive income or growth hacking. It’s the physical connection with every piece of work you do. By a human for a human. Your fingerprints. Your signature. Unmistakably you. Ownership. Labour intensive, because that’s the point. The long road in a sea of shortcuts. A commitment to better. Refinement. Vulnerable,…

  • A Day of Art and Architecture in Manhattan

    November 23, 2017 Kate

    Snaps from a day of art, architecture, and particularly notable lemon meringue tarts in Manhattan. I was at the Smithsonian primarily to see the building itself (are you seeing those details?!) and The Metropolitan to see the Leonardo to Matisse drawing exhibit. I was in that one room of the Smithsonian taking photos of the floors/walls/pipes/ceiling/trim long…

  • Why I Don’t Have Netflix

    November 23, 2017 Kate

    I don’t have Netflix. I know! I know. Or TV. I know. It’s not because I’m trying to save money or because I think it rots your brain, I simply realized it wasn’t serving the purpose I thought it was. I thought watching a movie or a show (OK, an entire series…) was a good…

  • I Don’t Know How To Make Money

    November 22, 2017 Kate

    I don’t know how to make money. I mean, I know HOW to make money. I just don’t know… how to make money. I don’t know how I want to make money. I left my proper full-time job over the summer to focus on doing my own thing. I’ve always know I’d want to “do my…

  • FOMO Isn’t What I Thought It Was and Yes, I’ve Got It

    November 21, 2017 Kate

    I’m tired. I’m not sure of what, exactly. Nope… No that’s a lie. I’m tired of the disconnect between where I am and where I want to be. I’m tired of the tension between how I feel and how I want to feel. As it turns out, I’ve got a serious case of FOMO. FOMO,…

  • Williamsburg, a Love Story

    November 20, 2017 Kate

    Well, well. Looks who’s finally getting around to editing her New York photos. It’s a me.  Taken on a stroll around Williamsburg, Brooklyn on October 30, 2017.

  • Smells Like Entitlement

    November 20, 2017 Kate

    Why doesn’t he like me? Why isn’t he proud of me? Why doesn’t he want to show me off? Why doesn’t he want to take care of me? Why doesn’t he follow up when I say I’m anxious? Why doesn’t he ask why? Why doesn’t he ask how I am? Why doesn’t he care? Why…

  • I Think I’m Obsessed With Being Right

    November 17, 2017 Kate

    “Many people become so obsessed with being right about their life that they never end up actually living it.” Oh, damn. I read that this morning in Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck (lol) and it’s stuck with me all day. This could apply to so many things but it’s got…

  • Adventures in Coffee (Because, What Else)

    November 16, 2017 Kate

    Photo evidence from a particularly wonderous stroll along Dundas West in Toronto last week. In which lots of coffee was drunk and many a dream was dreamed. (Studio/retail/event/??? space. That’s the dream.) Also, overheard at Balfour Books… “Oh, here it is, poetry to slit your wrists to. Someone was asking for this.” I love this city.…

  • Crisis Precipitates Evolution

    November 16, 2017 Kate

    I did it. I figured out what I need and I asked for it. I drove up there and I looked them straight in the eye and I asked for it. You know how people talk about “standing in your truth?” Well, that’s what I did. I stood there, straight and rooted, my voice projecting…
