I went to Thomas King at the Reference Library just to see what he was like. He’s funny, and he knows the secrets to his work … I haven’t read his books but I intend to. I have “The Inconvenient Indian” and “green grass, running water”. I guess I better decide – do you know what I should read?
He is said to be ‘a great writer and storyteller’. He lives in Guelph, Ontario. Of course, I would live in Guelph too … maybe when I’m older and retired (he-he-he). Its such a nice place, Guelph.
There’s 10 people dead because of this 25 year old that drove down the sidewalk and was striking everybody he could see. I don’t understand this … To be walking down the sidewalk, totally oblivious to what is going on and bang! your hit by a van …
And the 80 year old Bill Cosby was found guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting women, a whole bunch of them. I don’t understand this either … he needed to be told, before he was 80, perhaps earlier, that he was not doing the proper thing. In 1974, I was doing an essay on rape. I knew what eventually the rape laws would catchup with life, I didn’t know that it would be so long! Harvey Weinsten bought it all to a head …
So, I went up to Avenue Road, the top end. It’s just before you get onto the 401. I parked my car on a little street off of Avenue Road and I walked. This was what I saw …
I passed the pavement at the corner that was like this:
And I went back to my car, it was co-old out and I went by the construction site. It smelled like WOOD and I was reminded of going through construction site when they were new.
A BIG house on the corner welcomed me into it! It was a new house – very expensive ($3,095,000) and I took off my shoes to go and visit. It was available between 2 and 4 and it had all the bells and whistles about it the real estate agent told me. The little house next door was dwarfed by the big house.
I am reading ‘Designing your Life: How to build a well-lived, joyful life’. I heard about it on CBC last weekend. The authors are Bill Burnett and Dave Evans, both in the Stanford Design Program and I loved that! Design is a collaborative thing … the right questions to ask and the right supportive community are important.
I starting reading the book in a book store and I read so-o long that I fell in love with it. I decided to buy it to do the exercises such as Workview, Lifeview and the Good Time Journal.
