Summer has settled in, even if it is officially late spring, and I have left this post too long. So much is going on every weekend, as I try to get ready for the end of school for the kids and have all there activities as well. I cant believe there were no post at all in May. Sabatical
First, the show, it is confirmed, Sandy Grape and Pandora Hobby will crochet themselves into history, August 26-2 at the Mile End Gallery, vernissage is 5-8 August 30th Moksha – fibre libre, come have a glass of wine with us to celebrate the opening.
Next yarnbombing day: and it turned out that I was going to the annual roxham farm woolgathering prep lunch. Well we bombed anyway, a couple of things, hoping to do a few more as the spring turns to summer, but happily as we mark the one year anniversary of last year’s bombs, 3 of them are still up!!!!
Third festivals, so many festivals, folk at lachine, the pop in little italy with Weeping buffalo cant get to them all but so very happy to hear so many friends performing them.
Last the red square-maple spring movement. I have been meaning to write on this, and maybe I still will. I am so glad that there are so many people getting out in the street being heard. There is a new face to this everyday. I cant say what effect it will have, sadly I hear people asking for the students to back down because of the inconvenience of the violence, because we already pay a low tuition etc. I think it is simple, we have the right to protest, if no one is listening we have to take another tact. If violence is unwanted – then hurry up and listen. I dont generally go marching but laud those that do. I believe the fact I fought these fights many times over the years holds me in good stead, that I am usually indisposed presently. Moreover, I teach and my service is free to my students, so I must believe in free education, I am a practitioner!!!
Nobody can disagree with the fact that the system needs an overhaul, stop trying to time this one out….it isn’t going away.
oh, and Parc is alive every sat 5-7 for gruta jam party, come and see!!!
