Alison Bowles (1963-2021)

My wife Alison Bowles took her life in Toronto on March 4, 2021. It’s taken me more than a year to recover from the shock of her death; I’m not sure I’ll ever fully recover. In any case, I wanted to devote a part of the blog exclusively to her, separate from the rest–my thoughts about her life and death, and about some of the larger issues provoked by both; the written work of hers that I’ve managed to preserve from her social media; and as much of her photography as I can find, some of it already embedded in the header shots to the blog, some of it still scattered on her social media.

For now, the page is a placeholder; I’m still collecting and organizing the material I’d like to put here. Stay tuned.
