I have been in meetings all week, and bookmarking things like crazy to post about and thinking about blogposts and not having had a chance to do anything about it as I sort out an influx of new clients for marketing, for media, for business planning and continue to work with current clients on marketing and web, and meeting with potential clients for the months ahead, reading scripts, and sending notes to folks I want to work with and talking to them about their future plans. Working, dreaming, creating.
Things are marvelously busy and I’m happy as heck.
So it’s Sunday, and I’ll hook you up with some interesting reading – get another cup of coffee and there you go.
Monday was Library Day and I’ll recommend When She Woke which I got out and finished on Thursday. It said on the back cover that it channels Nathaniel Hawthorne by way of Margaret Atwood in this fast-paced, dystopian thriller and you know? It DID.
From the Guardian – Should theatre leave more to the imagination? I remember discussing an offshoot of this idea in Grade 12 English class and how the words on the page could convey just as much as any set.

Oh if anyone missed what happened with the City Budget last week, I am sending you to torontoist to find out. Once again they’ve done a fantastic job with coverage of all things municipally political. I will also send you to this fantastic article by Edward Keenan – we actually had some political intrigue going there!
Anyone who knows me knows I tend to frequent the Cameron House on a Thursday evening to listen to Corin Raymond and the Sundowners, and Corin is making headlines these days – if you’ve been hearing tell of a musician who’s paying for his studio time in Canadian Tire money – that’s Corin. It’s coming in from all over Canada – so go check the junk drawer and visit www.dontspendithoney.com for more info. It’s good for your soul.
