Anyways, Thunder and hail this Thursday afternoon and I've a long drive back to Nelson. I only achieved a very few of the things I needed to get done, including blogging, but the rest will have to wait until I return in the fall.

Possibility of blog posts before then, but unlikely as I'm working off of a cell phone at the moment and my thumbs are clumsy and large...

...that all this downsizing is just a step in another direction, the wrong direction, you know the one, but life is metaphor and this is just a new beginning I reassure myself ...

No. I planned for 85, I'll get to 85, there's a lot of terror left to inflict, grandchildren yet unborn, and a thousand other projects to wrap up first ...

Netflix has a lot of good movies, "The Ballad of Buster Scruggs" being the last I saw, and quite enjoyed (but not for everyone, I agree). This looks to be pretty good as well:

'ResponsiveMedia' plugin by Geoff Hayward.

Both on the same week, sadly I'm still working.

Tomorrow, hopefully, one (or both) with the boy. We caught the poetry reading on Wednesday at the Auburn, but missed so much more. My only day off, the rest had to slip away...

Should you have the day free and can plead (how?) that you didn't know, here's a heads up to the final day of the CUFF and Calgary Spoken Word Festival.

Yes, far, far too late, but there was no way I could attend either to my satisfaction. Apologies for posting so late.
