Day 126

March 6, 2019: Sexual Assault Was Not Her Olympic Dreams

A quick Google search led me to this: One in five women will be raped at some point in their lives. 51.1% of female victims of rape reported being raped by an intimate partner and 40.8% by an acquaintance. Sad. #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes

Day 125

March 5, 2019: Charlottetown Newcomers Remain On The Island

I love PEI. I love my aunt’s cottage there. I love taking the ferry. I love driving on the bridge. Creative people live on the island. Love exists in Charlottetown. No wonder why so many people love the Island. #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes

Day 124

Day 122

March 2nd, 2019: Butterflies Need To Hang Out

If you want to bloom, you need to align yourself to people that bring out the best in you. That is what you need to do in order to bloom and to maintain that bloom. The good people in your life will bring out the best in you so spend time with them and enjoy. #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes

Day 121

March 1st, 2019: They Were Married But He Hit Jack 16 Times.

Abuse doesn’t always have to be physical. In fact, mental abuse might be worse. If you are being abused, it is ok to leave such a relationship. Remember, you don’t owe anyone any explanation. If you have to leave for your sanity, do that. #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes

Day 120

February 28th, 2019: The Message Was Consistent … Take On Gun Control

Guns are dangerous. It is great idea to have reasonable gun control. When you see how countries like Switzerland handle gun control and the result, you know that having gun control is a no brainer. #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes

Day 118

February 26th, 2019: Three Fishermen Are Safe After They Had To Abandon Ship And Declined To Comment On The Sinking Or The Rescue

There are stories you can share and there are some that you have to keep between the people that experienced it. It’s ok to say “no comment”. There’s no need to put yourself in a comment when you would rather not say anything at all #MyBlackOutPoems @centreforarttapes
