My Life in Pieces

MY LIFE IN PIECES is a video-cast autobiography in ten minute instalments.  Pieces is a rolling story picking up fragments of my life, investigating parts of my body and pieces of my mind to prompt writing in multiple forms. I’ve had the company of Murray Toews (Graphics, animation), Kevin and Caden Nikkel (live film, recording and editing) to provide video accompanying my words for the first three episodes.

MY LIFE IN PIECES is an audio podcast picking up and examining pieces of my life.

MY LIFE IN PIECES is text and image of my life in pieces.

I sometimes imagine at least one of Queen Victoria’s voluminous dresses are made by a time traveling Agnetha Dyck and a coterie of bees gone to London to see the queen. I slowed a little today looking for the quote that God was ill and created the world – made something, even if on the
