Every Minute of Respite: Wendy and Judith

Call to Mind

30-01-2022 • 32 mins

Three years ago, Wendy closed her commercial cake business in Vancouver to move back to the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island to live with her mom, Judith, who had also been a baker. In this episode she and her brother make sourdough bread and cinnamon buns to sell locally as they care for their mother and try to help her cope with growing confusion and sadness. This episode is about the need for self-care, digging in the garden, and digging up old family secrets. They unearth the meaning of home and how our memories shape us.
