Poem Alert! Duck!

There are 3 sides to a river

All of the moments are cascading before me
Time is a river I must cross.

If nothing flows past me,
Then I am alone;

No island nor bridge,
Just a solitary shore.

Vast yet incomplete
An infinite line.

Points makeup segments
Arcs fail to to resolve.

Time can be channeled,
Time can be bent.

But a flow can not be halted
Without losing its nature

So I must risk crossing
Or gain nothing but stasis

On occasion of feeling nothing but the opposite

Weekend Warriors

Finally got back to Nordegg to unwind, visit with Brent at Shunda Creek Hostel and break out the climbing gear. It was too cold to climb on Saturday, so we upped the ante and visited a glacier. Sunday saw saw rocking 5.4s as we introduced a n00b to the awesome sport of being scared spitless…

Good times on the Columbia icefields…

She started on a 5.6 and by the time she hit the 5.5 at Hogwarts, it was old hat!

All in all, a great weekend featuring 4 bears, 1 elk, many sheep and many, many, many deer. Co-starring a bbq’d pizza, red wine and an unplanned tomato salad.

Hey Bert!

Last last-show of the season, this time at Studio Theatre. Bertolt Brecht’s the Good Woman of Setzuan. Apparently 3 hrs of theatre goodness. Um.

A beautiful night for some theatre…

Too much time in a tub makes you a prude

A friend of mine in love with children’s books, posted a post recently in which she pointed out our North American issues with bodies. Apparently the Canadian edition of Else-Marie and Her Seven Little Daddies simply omitted an image of communal bathing. Why? I guess it was too much for our high morality. I mean after all, heaven forfend we start to look at each other realistically…
