About Me


Take off from here. And don't be so earnest / so ready for the sackcloth and the ashes. / Let go, let fly, forget / You've listened long enough. Now strike your note.


"She felt very young; at the same time unspeakably aged. She sliced like a knife through everything; at the same time was outside, looking on. . . . far out to sea and alone; she always had the feeling that it was very, very dangerous to live even one day."

True. But I address those dangers as they arise, often dressing up for the occasion.

People call me an old soul but I am happiest at the kids' table.


“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies — ‘God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.” ― Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


With my heart.


Splendiferous vagabundance!


The sound before the needle hits the groove. Readiness. Psychiatry. Trauma. Seepage.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

“Then finally and happily, and not in obedience to the dolorous circumstances of my native place but in spite of them, I straightened up. I began a few years ago to try to make space in my reckoning and imagining for the marvellous as well as the murderous.”

Teach, Learn, Share

An excerpt from a piece by Lee Lozano, Untitled, 1967:

"From week in Halifax: The magic word to cancel spells if anyone tries to lay a spell on you, or, to counteract a witch's power; yell: ORTHOGRAPHY!"
