On the way to this weekend, in the midst of preparing and rehearsing and cobbling together some new work, I came across this photograph that was donated by an artist at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word a few years back. I can’t remember his name (but write me if you know him), but I do recall his generosity, creating work for several competitors, and reminding us to soak in the light, in between races on and off stage. It also serves to give me a reminder of a moment in time, something I think we have all too few of (or at least I do) in the hectic schedules we maintain. Even photographs, specific creations of reminder are relegated to the back of my computer because I haven’t had the chance to unpack India or Cambodia from my ‘case’. So here’s to being present, in all our efforts, and enjoying all the warmth that days provide us. I have been overjoyed with blessings in the last year, and still managed to lose my balance along the way. Here’s to catching ourselves, and each other, and giving thanks every day.
This Sunday, I’ll be giving thanks at The Drake, through poetry. I hope to see you.
