Mississauga Meanderings

By Dr. Pallavi Narayan

In the summer of 2020, I took interminable solitary walks through the lanes and by-lanes of Mississauga, revelling in the warm weather but feeling lonely due to self-isolation. It was sometimes heartening to see someone tending to their front yard or eating on their porch. I’d stroll longer and bigger squares and rectangles, purchasing a bottle of cola and chasing a spectacular sunset over the horizon. That’s when I felt compelled to sketch one of the almost-mansions that I enjoyed passing by, taking my time to perfect its details. Sketching this seemed to ground me better into that never-ending time.


Dr. Pallavi Narayan’s visual art–watercolour and photography–has been published in Nightingale & Sparrow, Beyond Words Literary Magazine, The Lumiere Review, and Analogies & Allegories Literary Magazine. Her words have been published in literary journals and anthologies.
