Dragon flies in drag
over river spits,
mustard grasses,
tissue wings
zim hummering.
Their needled bodies
threaded beads, azure
hyphened by ebony
to the period of their
tails. Tumid eyes to tips
to eyes, waging circles
where another begins,
where mist and sigh,
early sky shaking its wings,
water below splitting,
spreading hemispheres
a slow spinning blue

Skiing in Tuonela, Cape Breton 
Thursday, January 10, 2008, 10:43 AM - Outdoor adventure

Snow is a form of
memory. Prints of flight,
feast, forage. Scrums of
struggle. Small followed by
bigger followed by

Marked. Tatooed.
Attempts to
pin the fleeting.

Persistence of parallel
lines rewriting

If you want a unique cross-country and telemark ski experience, try Ski Tuonela. Cozy off-the-grid cabins nestled in gorgenous Goose Cove, Cape Breton. It is a 4km ski into the site. Ani always has piping soup on in the main cabin...Check out their website...ok gorgenous was a typo but I kind of like it...

Recording broadcast quality interviews on Skype 
Monday, January 7, 2008, 12:21 PM - Poetry and Writing
Found an amazing resource through The Conversations Network (U.S.) by Doug Kaye and Paul Figgiani. It is a 22 minute video tutorial on how to use skype to record interviews. I am going to use it for my book of life-stories. I can think of all kinds of applications for work and distance learning too.
