the weekend is gone

Sunday i had another poetry reading at the main library downtown. this reading was apart of the Edmonton Poetry Festival. which was a week long festival. everyday a new venue to listen to fellow poets. i read to a packed house. all the seats were full, people were even standing! i kept my five minute set on the move with minimal intro's and lots of eye contact. i got grouped with six other poets, who were absolute amazing. with a poetry reading like that, i wish every week were poetry week.

and we met again

Sunday morning i woke up to find what appeared to be a black dot moving down the white curtains. upon taking a closer look i saw that it was a ladybug... THE ladybug, our former humble house guest of the Royal Windsor Arms. Steve McQueen/Houdini had never left. ever since the great escape i remained hopeful that one day the ladybug would return. it is nice to know something so small can be so resilient.

a tube of many shades

my trips to the art store were very predicable. through the doors, straight to the back, then to the right and hang a left. pretty straight forward. then they remodeled!!! buying paint could not be more easier. better displays and new lower prices... always a bonus considering everything is on the rise and the larger Winsor + Newton tubes. which i am in luv with. not all the colours are available in the large tubes but hey i am not complaining. the basics are good enough.

i also picked up a package of Derwent tinted charcoal pencils. i am excited to try the five muted colours. my experiments will be fun!
