“Everything’s a story – You are a story -I am a story.”
Hello all. Welcome. This week I celebrate gardening and Canada Day. I also look deeper into the art of the short story. And I happily confirm that I will be going back to work. These are my five items of interest this week, hopefully, there’s something of interest for you too.
1.Ted talks are great. This week I caught Ron Finley the gangsta gardener, talking about solutions to food deserts. When I am working in my garden I find it therapeutic. Now is a great time to be a gardener and you can get your children involved as well. Children gardening and how to feed a community by Frankie Flowers.
One of my previous employers has asked me to start work mid July. Teaching a virtual, family karate class for the summer. Sounds like great fun to me, I am ready.
3. I have been reading Too Much Happiness by Alice Munro – her short stories are fascinating. I recommend reading and savouring each short story. Take some time to reflect on the story; have fun checking references. Take the short story “Wenlock Edge” first published in the New Yorker in 2005. The story has references to “On Wenlock Edge” by A.E Houseman and “A Shropshire Lad” as well as “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight”.
4. The last theatrical stage show I attended was, “Come From Away”, a great show and a fun night out for my wife and I. My friends at Mirvish Theatre keep in touch by newsletter. They sent me this cool link to The Louder We Get and I share it here for all those folks who graduated this year.
5. The sound waves for me leaned heavily on the trumpet spectrum this week — names like, Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, a tiny desk performance. And the Toronto trumpeter Alexis Baro performing “Noche”.
