U of T Summer Writing School July 10-14

Exciting — my revamped website launches tomorrow. Inkling Design’s Andrea and Kelley have been fantastic to work with, creative, responsive, professional, prompt. I’ll have to get used to the shiny new site — as will you! 

A crazy day here — the city is doing sewer work that was supposed to start at 7 a.m. today, and we were asked to let water run down all our drains just before work began, so I was up at 6 to be ready. Just went to talk to the guys, however, with their giant machines roaring outside, and they said they’re starting tomorrow instead. Yay.

And the piano tuner is here now; mon dieu, the poor thing was so out of tune. Sounding better already. Too bad it’s only me who plays it, and sporadically at that.

A reminder for any of you in or near Toronto: I’m teaching at U of T’s Summer Writing School. An amazing week,  July10-14, intense workshopping and contact with fellow writers and writing instructors — readings, panels, discussion. Let me know if you have questions.

My downstairs tenant just brought me up some lentil soup. Blessings. The roses are blooming their peachy heads off. My pants are covered with cat hair. The neighbours to the north have a new puppy; what a pleasure to listen to young Juliet play with her. Life is complicated, but summer is sweet. Onward.

    That's it! Life is complicated, but summer is sweet. Looking forward to your new website though I will miss the pencils across the top!

      Yes, I love those pencils too, but you'll see, they have not vanished.

      The new site lists the blogs I follow but, unlike now, does not show when a new post appears. Phooey. I'll just have to check every day.
