Happy Halloween

Have a happy halloween, so scarey it makes your teeth sweat!
Do the potato monster mash! ( the scarey part of this is it could be quite abrasive and self effacing, if indeed you are a potato)


I scared you didn't I?


Please note no potato or other animal or vegtable were harmed during the posting of this entry.

new town

is the name of the diner
at the corner of coxwell and lower gerrard

at the counter sat ida
in a white crochet hat
and large 1970's glasses

sue the flying waitress
asked ida why she was going so soon

and ida said, i didn't bring enough money
as she finished her beer, walks out in slipper shoes a little too big
with her cane and legs she says ache

you know how i am
she tells sue

i ran into someone who needed some money

i am looking out at the sky
through three windows
over the door
looking at nothing
like the water that gathers in eyes too full
the way the sky sometimes is colourless and grey blue
and water vapour dances in a hypnotic way

and my daughter says
what's wrong, your eyes are all watery

and i say oh nothing at all
i am a million miles away

which is a lie, and isn't

(*please read comment by me, to assure you my readers that i am well)

news of today and such

hi a little black cat wants to live with us,
today she invited herself in

owen the dog
and bea the girl
looked on

when i came down, kitty was outside
and owen the dog scared her away

is she a she?

i got a wonderful new part time job,
decieded toys are for kids..
left the toy shop on good terms
with achy legs, too much standing for this ol' girl

new job,
down the road from the toyshop
a delicious job
full of natural fibers and colours to delight
come visit
knit nights on wednesday at 6:30 till late
at the naked sheep.

busy ga fella
that's yiddish
a future persuit,
now meditation in the mornings
and tea in the afternoon as per usual

a tad sick, sore throat that comes and goes
learning curves,
cast off emergencies

the studio downstairs a jumble
making halts
but waits
a little impatiently
'kim, says the fabric please do turn us into something else, we beg of you'
'yes dear fabric i answer of course my darling patterns and solids woolies and not you shall be made a new, patient my darlings, sweet life of the day sometimes obstructs the view"

this is the challenge
preparing for the one of a kind
doing the administrative stuff
rounding up kind friend volunteers,
working around my carless, non- driver state

really wouldn't making nothing but stringing words together be easier to carry i ask at this juncture

enjoying the weather
the cool and the colours
the new of the knitting shop
the stretch into each and every day
the rhythym and the breath

todays news and such
i hear the economy is going to hell in a handbasket
i have a nice handbasket for sale if you would like
made of recycled fabrics, going for something not unreasonable for the work envolved

soup making
lasagagna production
circling the kensington market for goodies
running into old friends
sadly not sipping enough tea with ol' pals and whilling away the hours

the temperature of the day says
'get to work my dear'

and i do
or don't

talk soon
see you later

thanks for tuning in

love, love love to you all.
