I’m playing catch-up here on the blog…also apologize for not reading/responding to some of the feedback I’ve been given lately. Teaching full days every day has swept me up into the momentum of the ‘normal’ life and I am ‘abnormally’ overwhelmed by it all. Listening to Margaret Atwood yesterday, speaking of ‘where she writes’ was remarkably inspiring. Writing is an act that is always with her (it is her) in her hotel room and on the planes that carry her from one event to the next. She is not rooted in ‘a space’. I have not written because I have taught. After yesterday, I think that this is strange. (I’m laughing at myself here…)
To go on with an earlier post about the exhibition of photographs at our Esker Foundation titled Splendid Isolation, I am sharing a wee bit about a panel discussion I enjoyed related to the exhibit a little over a week ago.
Olga Chagaoutdinova, Miruna Dragan and George Webber were all in attendance. It was a pleasure to speak once again with Jim Hill and with Douglas Williamson, a couple of gentlemen I respect greatly. I spelled Miruna’s name incorrectly throughout my note taking…as well as others, I’m sure. I wanted to capture the gist of the responses that were, for me, so satisfying.
