Just a Canadian Girl
By Lavinia Thompson
Published: June 29, 2012.
This is a story about a small-town girl who, tired of her own town and in the midst of soul-searching, decided to take a chance, fly across the country on her own, and experience Canada Day in Ottawa, Ontario.
This short story can also be found in my recent poetry book, "Wildflowers Scattered, Estranged: Memoirs of a Small Town Girl."
