And…that’s a wrap for Leslieville Lives; Stories from the ‘Ville!

Hello Readers of Leslieville Lives; Stories from the ‘Ville. I’ve decided after two years and 41 stories  to end this project. Time for a change? Moving on? Not exactly sure. I wanted to go out on ’42’ stories – the meaning of life and all  – but alas, couldn’t make that last one happen. Perhaps a few Special Editions in the future. As with my other lengthy neighbourhood project (A Day in the Life of Leslieville) this one too,  is getting a little send off. Being Valentine’s Week , it seems a good time to send this love letter to those who generously agreed to tell their stories. From joyful to overcoming extreme adversity to surviving all that life throws at us. And to the readers, for sharing in this experience by reading the stories. Thank You! Enjoy this tribute. I will continue posting pics of Leslieville, Toronto and surrounds so don’t say goodbye to the page! Just a fond farewell to this special project. Look out for the book in the future. There will be one!  Diane xox

    At least one of your stories (Bear) from your special project was relayed to a friend in Germany. I missed reading a few when they came out but planned on going back to read them. You should feel really proud of your work as it touched me a great deal to know of the people’s lives that you wrote about.

      Thanks Janice – that story was something. I held onto that for days. Tragic, but he pulled through! I am proud, I have to say. The stories really touched me and many I think. Thanks again.

    Congratulations Diane on a project that enriched all of us and helped us to feel more connected to the lives around us. I may not live in Leslieville but your stories reminded me that in every neighbourhood we are surrounded by remarkable human beings…if we just ask for their stories! Thanks Di!
