Meet Regan, our eight-year-old boy. Actually, he’s our only boy.
Some people would say this is a posed portrait. I mean, he is looking at the camera after all. But if you knew Regan, you’d know that this is who he is.
He is full of energy. He is the most spontaneous of our children. One minute he will be sitting quietly reading, and the next he is running the length of the house yelling at the top of his longs while flailing his arms.
That’s Regan.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
