Four-eyed bookword, tattooed queer, storyteller nomad mama to two unschooled earthlings, based in East Van, overlooking the shipyard cranes and always ready for the next most amazing giant tiny little big wonderful something to capture my attention.

Or:

When Carrie Mac was born, her right eye gawked off in one direction while her left eye looked the other way. Well meaning adults thought she was a changeling and so they wrapped her up and put her on the porch for the fairies to take back, please and thank you. It was snowing. It was dark. No fairies came. The same well meaning adults decided she'd catch her death out there. So they brought her in and kept her after all.

She's read millions of books, and has sat happily at the feat of a legion

Does This Happen to Everyone? by Jan von Holleben

Deeply entrenched in- and enforcing- the gender binary, this book assumes that young boys think girls are "stupid," that boys grow into sex-obsessed, car- and muscle-loving simpletons, and that girls should apologize for how "touchy" they get before ...more

“I was astonished at what I could do. And I wondered what else I could do. Maybe I would always wear the heavy boots of anxiety and the prickly coat of worry, but maybe -- even still -- I could just be a person who belongs in the world, even if it's hard.”
Carrie Mac, 10 Things I Can See from Here

“What can I do?" Salix pulled away. "Can I make you a cup of tea? Want to go for a walk?"

"I just want to stop worrying so much!" I can't even do anything, so what's the point?"

"You told me that you can't really help it, right?" She wiped my tears with her shirt.

I nodded.

"So worry. Just go ahead and worry. Worry as hard as you can, and then keep worrying."

"That sounds awful."

"But if you can't stop worrying, you have to figure out how to worry and keep living, right? We need to find you a really, really big box."

"What for?"

"Not a box. A backpack."

"What?"

"For you to put your worries in, so that you can take them with you, and when you figure out how to not worry so much, you can get rid of them one at a time. And then the backpack will get lighter and lighter until you'll be so light you'll float off the ground."

I kissed her then, because there were no words for how much I liked her in that moment. Loved her, maybe.”
Carrie Mac, 10 Things I Can See from Here

“... she was just another girl I would never get to know.”
