Traveling Through Time

Traveling Through Time

In the past week I have travelled through over a hundred years of time:

My work at the museums mean I dance between 1851 farm house living in a tartan parlour dress and bonnet, to the Edwardian teacher jumper that makes me feel like Anne of Green Gables all grown up!

New to the mix was stepping in to talk about the end of War of 1812 and then walking Old Toronto and making a pit stop at Toronto’s First Post Office.

Lastly, fast forward me to 1945 to the WWII epic “State of Women” with me making airplanes for the war.

Each gig I dive into history and I never stop learning. People share their stories with me and I pocket the information to tell someone else. I love the sharing that happens when you start talking about the past; everyone has one and everyone has a story to tell. I’m one of the lucky ones that gets to do that all the time 🙂

So that’s 130 years in one week. I wish I got airmiles for that.

Murdoch Mysteries LIVE…or dead, rather?

Murdoch Mysteries LIVE…or dead, rather?

Today I had the pleasure of being Clara, an Edwardian traveller on my way to the train station with my Travel Companion: Eliza, and her child Kit. We were on our way to Kingston when are travel plans were interrupted by a terrible murder! Here’s all the fun I had at The Toronto Railway Museum with the cast of Murdoch Mystery 8.5 The Infernal Device! See me grimace in this short video (the last one on the page).

*Bonus: I was called Clara! That’s my fav due to Back to the Future III so I was secretly geeking out the whole day being called by her name!*
