"susurrations" on Street Anatomy

My video poem "susurrations" was featured on Street Anatomy last week. Street Anatomy is one of my favourite blogs. Its curator, Vanessa Ruiz is "obsessed with the beauty and intrigue of human anatomy" as am I.

The video is about 10 minutes long.

Crackers still Crisp

Yes, the crackers are back, revived and crisp and salty as ever.. Today we met at the Bessborough hotel lounge and had a nice little table beside a business man who bought our first round in exchange for watching his computer while he went for a smoke. It was minus 25 today so he wasn't gone long.

Speaking of exchange, some great show and tell, all with metaphysical/neo-surrealist themes..
