I’ve been away from my dear website, off chasing rainbows with delusional projects I can’t persuade arts agency  jurors to support. Usually they’ve never seen anything like it before, are suspicious of old dogs with new tricks, or they underestimate what I can do while still being chronically depressed and ill with lousy cartilage genetics, in pain everyday.

Thankfully I have learned how to manage my symptoms and write. So over the course of the next few days leading up to my 64th birthday I will be posting new stories, poems,  letters, and grant applications on this site. There’s a hitch, you’ll have to pay for it, though I will broaden what  I make available for free. Plus there is a new annual category offering a year’s worth of everything for $50, the year running from April 3, 2019 to April the 2nd 2020, my 64th.

I was planning to apply for a residency in Campbell River with the Write For Your Life  (WFYL) project as my community engagement. I thought for a minute, and I concluded there was no reason I couldn’t do the same here where I live.

Gimli’s Evergreen Basics Needs is hosting an information session, April 15, 2019 at 1:00 pm to see if enough people are interested in participating in a Write For Your Life (WFYL) workshop next fall. Victor Enns, a published writer with “lived experience” will facilitate the sessions where people may gather to write for therapy. Ted Dyck started WFYL  projects in Saskatchewan ten years ago, with five now meeting regularly throughout Saskatchewan. I’ll come back to this and Transition magazine, but for now, well I’m bushed.
