Towards Boundary Creek

RESEARCH NOTE 1. Boundary Creek Let’s begin. Let’s begin with trains. This beginning fell on my head before dinner, which I enjoyed. First solid food in days, roast beef, baked potato, vegetables for show and the family vegetarian. For sharing her cheese cake and my grandson, she can be any thing she chooses. Let’s begin

The Letterwriter

Here’s a random sample from my letters. I’m contemplating a project, here online, to add to the choices for supporters of my Patreon Pages. This is an example of one of middling interest. Opinions are welcome. I think the comments section is still functional, and I’ll start keeping track of what might be there tomorrow.

Riddle me

Published in Transition 2009 like a wet dahlia in the rain like the trace of a purple felt marker like hammers hitting the strings of a badly tuned piano like the echo of boots stomping downstairs as if it mattered like a no account derelict with an open hand like the scent of a rotted

I Dreamed I Met Justin Trudeau

Last night I dreamed I met Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in an almost empty Winnipeg Hudson’s Bay building. I explained a problem about needing new shoes for my feet, one real, one fake.

My Daily Smog

I‘m thinking about getting it on. Anywhere, in the bedroom, sure, in the writing studio, ok, even during a writing workshop. It’s my leg, you see. I can spend from five minutes to half an hour putting it on. What was on my mind this morning was about time and space, but on the most

Me – My Left Foot

I am in Bed 3, though not right now. I am doing well enough I can go home and look after myself all long weekend. The walker photo is from week before last, the end of week two. I can easily make the rounds of the rehab gym on forearm crutches, and then on Friday,
