Canvassing Homewood Avenue, one of the most vital, neighbourly and beautiful streets around Ward 9’s Victoria Park, a delightful highlight of our Friday night was a little girl called Gemma.
Sitting at a small table on her front lawn, Gemma said she was busy writing a story about a treehouse. She said she reads lots and often writes stories. Her grandma told us that Gemma sometimes sits outside and, for 25 cents, offers to write a story for anyone passing by.
After telling us she will be a writer when she grows up, Gemma won the heart of my cat-loving wife, Sue, by taking her inside the house to show off her marmalade kitten “Peaches.”
