They call me Alexa. On my birth certificate, it says I am 20, but I am not quite sure. Sometimes I feel 80. Other times 5. Let me not bore you with such nonsense. Skip to the next paragraph.

I breathe in Vancouver, act, play the accordion and have acute infatuation tendencies toward David Bowie and John Linnell Here lies some of my favourite things.

So yeah. I'm crazy. I'm nuts. Jazzhands. Enjoy.

When women used to be depressed or were not “taking care of their men” properly their husbands could send them to the psych ward for attitude adjustments. This was part of conditioning them to always wear a smile. They believed that if a woman saw herself smiling that it would become natural practice and that she would be “cured”. This often went along with shock therapies. 
I found this post on Facebook with comments made by people with loved ones who wore these for the reasons mentioned above. After finding this story, I did a Google search and found out about a school in Budapest that used these masks for treatment of depression after World War 2. So yes, these stories are true.

I’m really looking forward to giving my grandmother her birthday gift.

She used to be an avid and very, VERY talented oil painter, loving landscapes and flowers. Since she’s had her stroke, she hasn’t touched a brush. Recently she’s been getting the urge but cannot get her paints and supplies from her downstairs cupboards. So I shall have my mother take her out shopping, so I can set up her paints and canvas in her kitchen, in front of her wide park window. There she and I shall paint away the day. I hope to give her the gift of artistic passion, facing fears and strength, and hopefully an outlet to keep her busy and strong.
