Ins and Outs of Ottawa

Maybe it’s cold outside.

The heat’s on inside.

Some sidewalks are clear but most are kind of smeared. Slip-slow thru the slush-walk.

Today’s pretty mild, considering it’s February and long johns are in order.
Inside is more inviting. Outside was nice and all but indoors is a good invention.


Postcards by Andrew King’s newest project where his art cards are left around month by month for people to find. Also a chapbook and pottery by the inimitable Amanda Earl.

And here’s another good thing. Until Feb 6, vote for what organizations should get a grant for their socially good project with Soup Ottawa. Theatre project, renovate a shelter’s kitchen, Youth slam, workshops on body image,social integration events for Nepalese immigrants, an after school breakfast program, another music festival, a postcard project to promote the plight of pigs, a library for used children’s books, a co-op, and a whack more.

Quote: “What I am calling poetry is often called content. I myself have called it form. It is the continuity of a piece of music. Continuity today, when it is necessary, is a demonstration of disinterestedness. That is, it is proof that our delight lies in not possessing anything. Each moment presents what happens.” ~ John Cage’s Lecture on Nothing
