It’s been a while! In the midst of the polar vortex, there is nothing better than digging into one’s own heart and mind in a cozy snow-globe world, and that’s exactly what’s happening here. I’m in full writing mode, working on a grant from the generous Toronto Arts Council to take a close look at our relationship with nature in toronto. I’m writing about falcons, coyotes, and the deeply beautiful urban ravines and watersheds in this city, that breath, live and sit, full of wonder, underneath the rational grid, just at the edges of our consciousness.
I’ve also been accepted into York University to complete a Master in Environmental Studies this year. My plan is to complete a multi-disciplinary treatise on lost landscapes. Perhaps it will end up as a book, full of photographs, graphic design and prose? One thing is for sure, the thesis itself will have a musical soundtrack, and the work will be diving deeply into the contemplative.
All is growing here, despite the layer of ice and snow. For regular updates, click and like!

everything once sweet gets buried underneath
i’m unborn and ready for the thaw
in the snow in shangri-la”
