... a signed copy of Cantilevered Songs by John Lent.
Big thanks to Tracy for this. I wanted to attend one of Lent's readings when he was touring through Saskatchewan, but it didn't work out. Also in the package was this cool ruler. Rulers of Impressionism. Paul Cezanne is at the 3 1/4 inch mark.
Speaking of Lent, I finished Abundance: The Mackie House Conversations about the Writing Life last night. The conversation between John Lent and Robert Kroetsch was just what I needed. It was inspiring. I spent the day writing in what I'm now calling my cave, eager to roll a boulder in front of the door. Before rolling it in place I'll likely give a little wave and say see ya. In three years. No sooner. Unless I run out of ink. Mind you, I can order that online. After all, we do have courier service up here.
Now back in the cave. Open...Saskatchewan!
