Feeding the Squirrels

I moved to Toronto from Serbia when I was six years old.

It was 2003.

Not knowing anybody except my family.

We decided to move to Yonge and Eglinton to be near our family who lived on Erskine.

They moved back to Serbia, but they’re coming to visit. I’m really excited to see them!

During the summer when I moved here, my grandfather used to walk me every day to my cousins’ place.

We would pick up a bag of chestnuts and feed the squirrels.

Eventually, there was an abundance of squirrels!

Now, every time I see a squirrel, I think of my grandfather.
