Over at New Canadian Modern, you can read In a Glass House with a Flame Thrower, featuring a Calgary jewelry designer who makes imaginative glass beads. The article is the latest blurb in my little mini-series, People Who Do Stuff, and it features lots of pretty pictures to lift your Tuesday doldrums.
Later today, I will be interviewing some kids in grade 2 about learning to read. We'll see if my Barbie Cub Reporter digital recorder can handle the musings of a gaggle of 8-year-olds.
Tomorrow, in a slightly surreal case of the hunter becoming the hunted, I am going to be on the other side of the mic. The Calgary Journal is interviewing me for my perspective on Calgary folk festival workshops. We all know I can wax ineloquent for hours on that subject, so I pity the foo who drew the short straw and now has to talk to me. I will likely just keep rambling until a click and a dial-tone lets me know that the interview is over.
Still to come:
- a book review on David Byrne's Bicycle Diaries
