my weekend, with photos

On Saturday morning I left Toronto after a splendid time at the International Festival of Authors, headed to NYC. I was supposed to arrive around 1pm, but then this happened: This was taken in the Hartford, Connecticut airport after my plane circled and circled and then tried to land in NY and then couldn’t and […]

flax-golden tales: poor unlucky lucy

poor unlucky lucy When Lucy died—at that precise moment—everything changed. She used to say she was just a k away from lucky, that was always the joke though all things considered it wasn’t particularly funny. No one ever wanted to point out that what she really meant she was unlucky. I had a three AM conversation […]

musical interlude

I meant to have time to put together a proper post today, but time, she is a fickle thing. Instead, have a musical interlude. This album is going to be the soundtrack of my next novel, I can tell already.

flax-golden tales: written in the leaves

written in the leaves Leaf reading is a skill not easily learned, as there is such a limited time to practice it each year. It is a temporary thing. Glimpses of image and pattern carefully translated into meaning. Traditionally it is taught, passed down from reader to student through years of autumns spent in intense […]

this is not a proper post

This is not a proper catch-up post, because that would have thoughtful things and links and artfully curated photos. This is a post to say miscellaneous things with miscellaneous photos and possibly links if I have time.

if you feel just like a tourist

I was in Boston for all of six hours last night before flying to London today. Now I am in a very cozy hotel room, unsure of what time it is and unable to blog properly but I have my nice camera with me so there should be proper photos eventually and I will tell […]

flax-golden tales: clandestine coffee

clandestine coffee Suburban witches meet in secret. Or as secret as suburbia allows, with its nosy neighbors and their curious, narrow-eyed stares. Jokes are made about broom closets, but it is easier this way. No Sabbat circles on soccer fields. They turn the wheel of the year in living rooms and basements, under the guise […]

mississippi

True confession: I sing the spelling of Mississippi to myself every time I type it. I had never been to Mississippi before and I was fortunate enough to have wonderful weather for my visit, I wish I could conduct all of my phone interviews from porch swings. Had a splendid, open windowed reading at Square […]
