Don’t Cry Over Spilt Milk

As a child when I would cry about something, my mother would reprimand me saying “don’t cry over spilt milk”. Once the pandemic struck I went into shock. I could absolutely not create. Until one morning, two months later, I spilled my milk. My mothers admonition rang through my brain as I numbly and instinctively designed in the spilt milk. The corona virus had been haunting me, blocking me. Feeling a tremendous sense of relief, I realized my creative instinct had returned.

What We Choose to Remember features a cast of more than 30 characters, whose families arrived in successive waves of immigration. The oldest families arrived during the period of ‘two solitudes’ when Montreal’s population was more than 50% English. They share firsthand accounts decades of political upheaval. The most recent immigrants arrived believing linguistic conflicts were ancient history.

Our story takes place on the Indigenous lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) nation of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Tiotià:ke (known as Montréal) has existed as a meeting place of many First Nation peoples, including but not limited to the Abenaki , Anishinaabeg (Algonquin), and the Huron-Wendat. We extend our deepest respect to the elders of these nations and to all Indigenous peoples who carry the history of this island’s land and waters. We also call upon all levels of government to adopt and implement the 94 recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation commission.
