Welcome to Digital Shrine, a media art project conceived by Sharon Stevens in 2012 and with software programmed by designer Shiori Saito.
Introducing visiting writer Sue Goyette
While visiting the East Coast, Digital Shrine found the perfect companion. Sue Goyette, award-winning author and poet from Halifax, joins Equinox Vigil to read and transform your tributes into poetry. Co-sponsored by Loft 112, Sue will also present a workshop, offer one:one sessions and will perform a reading on September 15.
Digital Shrine poetry
At 9 pm as the Equinox Vigil is drawing to a close, Sue will read the poetry written during the course of the evening. Join us at the Digital Shrine to hear the poetry and the choirs will then lead the procession as the closing ceremony.

Thank you for your unconditional love, kindness and beautiful soul. You are greatly missed by everyone, and will never be forgotten. I love you so much and wish with all my heart you could have met Daniel. I hope to hug you again someday. xo Love Andrea
September arrives and I think of Iain’s birthday and the almost-25 years he spent loving, teaching, laughing – and sometimes, fighting or crying – but mostly, making the world around him a little more simple, patient, caring and bright. I think of the person that I am, and how much of that was shaped by my experience with my big brother.
September arrives and I think of his death. The last time I said “I love you” and had one of his long, skinny arms wrapped around my shoulders. The way that life halts in a moment and yet continues fiercely, with no regard for grief or broken hearts.
The world keeps spinning and one thousand, four hundred and sixty days later – I still hold that sadness in my chest; I know emptiness far more intimately than I could have imagined.
September arrives and it is a vivid reminder of both the fragility of life and the immense love that I am fortunate to have experienced.
September arrives and Iain is at once, everywhere, at yet never quite close enough.
Bill, we all miss you so much.
the magpies chasing their tails
any cat or baby
all remind me that I was gifted with your love... your passion.. your fierceness. I long to hold you one more time... to whisper your name... Jessie Rose... thank you...
No words ....
Our world is still upside down.
I see you, hear you and feel you in all of us. There isn't a day that goes buy that I wish you were still with us!
Love you always
even after 7 and a half years
i can hardly acknowledge that you're gone. Please don't think that, because i don't talk about you, i don't think about you. i think about you every day. It just hurts.
You've missed so much.
And we've missed you.
Now that i'm almost grown up, i wish we could talk. i wish i knew you longer. i love you so much.
You've broken our hearts.
Iain arrived too early one September and left way too early another September.
Iain, your disabilities were a challenge and a lesson for all of us; you taught us well!
We miss you every day...you kept me on my toes and the void you left is huge.
See you in dreams.
