Goodness Out There

It’s hard to believe that the weekend is only half over. It’s been chuck full and with guests for two days. I’ll be giving short shrift to all this goodness unfortunately but better that than to pass without mentioning the launch Friday. There was a good-sized, and appreciative, crowd. A few of you reading were there. A few of you could of been there and missed some good stuff. And a few of you should move to Ottawa. :) Lucky for you, either way you can still read it: Ottawater is a pdf poetry annual magazine. It’s got interviews and art and poetry of a range of styles.

The few pics I took were between slightly and spectacularly blurred but this gives some idea of the look of things in Mercury Lounge.

If you’re out west, for Scottish-Chinese hapa Canadians there was a poetry event to celebrate combined heritages: Robbie Burns intersects Chinese influences, a poetry nite vancouver with Gung Haggis Fat Choi is today.

The next big poetry event in Vancouver is the Individual World Poetry Slam. It starts in a couple days.

Odds and ends…

Want to see an offbeat surreal film? The German film Tuvalu is sepia toned and essentially without dialogue.

Mmmm, Walnut Almond Squares:)

Savage Chickens

This Indexed is food for thought in many directions.
