Non-Fiction — Scarborough General Hospital

So a guy gets in my car:
RIDER: Please just take the shortest route to Scarborough General, Emergency.
ME: No problem, you ok?
RIDER: Um, not really. But of a heart problem...just need to get there quickly. Oh, and this envelope holds all my records etc... If anything should happen before we get there just see that the medical staff that take me from your car get this.
ME: Sure, no problem.
Fastest trip to Scarborough General I've ever made.
If you get a chance, say a wee prayer for Mark. I think he could use a bit of a boost tonight :)

Non-Fiction — Baby Boy

So, I delivered a baby tonight! Well not really, but I did deliver an expectant mother and father to Sunnybrook. I'm no expert but sure sounded like the beginnings of labour in my back seat. So please say a little prayer for Emily and her husband tonight, that by morning they have their firstborn, a healthy baby boy ❤️

Non-Fiction — Sarah

Hope for the future:
Gave Sarah a ride uptown tonight from her place along the Danforth. Not long ago Sarah got rid of her downtown condo and downtown job for a "cozy little little corner of the real world" on the Danforth, along with a new job and new life at a grassroots startup focusing on environmental issues. She gave up a high paying job (so goodbye condo) and secure financial future to "focus on making the world a better place for her future children and grandchildren."
Good on ya Sarah. May your new dreams come true. <3

Non-Fiction — Aviva

Picked up Aviva late this afternoon from a school near Bathurst & Steeles. He was pretty young looking but, if I wanted to be generous, he may have been 14 or 15.

We get on our way to Avi's place and he says, "So. Big day tomorrow." I said oh really, how come? He said, "it's election day..."

Then we proceeded to have one of the best conversations I've ever had about politics.
There is hope Canada, and his name is Aviva.

Don't forget to vote tomorrow.

Non-Fiction — Molly

Dropped off Molly for her Air Canada flight to Vancouver. In the morning she takes the ferry to her family home in Victoria to spend a few days before heading back to LA where she is a freelance jewellery designer and photographer.

Won’t be the last Toronto sees of Molly though. She had such a good visit that when her lease in LA is up next Spring she plans on moving to the Kensington Market area of Toronto. See you in the Spring Molly :)

Non-Fiction — Jenica

I drove Jenica to visit a friend this evening. We'd never met but had a really great conversation in which she told me she is moving to Australia in 17 days. She visited as a teen and has since wanted to go back. Now she is a singer and has decided to establish her career down under. She was so excited and so full of life. Aren’t dreams fabulous!?

So for Jenica, and all those chasing their dreams, enjoy every step along the way. The Journey is the best part. Godspeed Jenica :)

Non-Fiction — Buddha Pie

Driving Uber I come across the coolest places. The inside was even more awesome than the outside. No time tonight but definitely have to find my way back here for some Buddha pizza.
