Just a Canadian Girl

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
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."

About Lavinia Thompson

I've been writing since I could put pen to paper. I write poetry, fiction, and whatever else comes to mind. I'm a 29-year old dog and cat mom, music addict, bookworm, journalism grad turned high school janitor living with severe chronic depression and CPTSD. I have risen from a dark childhood of domestic violence. I faced that monster in my closet and am now writing about it. I watched my mother be tortured for almost ten years. I stood before the remnants of the house her ex burned down in a drunken rage. I lived with the aftermaths and the damage it did in the years that followed. Now, I am chasing dreams and living my life to the fullest.
