Curve of a knife, that vulture above the bleeding sky.

2008-06-20T04:31:00-05:00

A thunderstorm rumbled through between 4:00-5:00 a.m. It left rain behind. The street shines with moisture. It was hot yesterday, temperatures into the 80s. It is about 60 degrees this morning. A cool breeze comes in through the dining room...



LINES FOR JUNE 19

2008-06-19T04:37:00-05:00

The wind. The wind. Like desire in daylight. The bliss of it.

2008-06-19T04:31:00-05:00

It is nearly 70 degree this morning, the air thick with humidity, a haze overhead. We are promised heat and humidity. Bring it on! say my sore shoulders. The warmth may comfort them. I have offered to speak to a...



LINES FOR JUNE 18

2008-06-18T04:37:00-05:00

All the standing water. All the kiss of sky. This holiness of the low ground.



A TRIP TO THUNDER BAY(6)
TUESDAY, JUNE 10, 2008

2008-06-18T04:35:00-05:00

I drove west from Kakabeka Falls yesterday to see where Highway 11-17 had washed out, and I found the place. Workmen were still repairing the road, but it was now passable. I drove farther west looking at the countryside, and...

2008-06-18T04:31:00-05:00

We still enjoy the coolness of early June. A grey haze still shades us. The seasons run like clockwork, yet it still seems more like spring than the buzz of full summer approaching. Our days are as long as they...



LINES FOR JUNE 17

2008-06-17T04:37:00-05:00

The wind would push me, yet I refuse to hurry.



A TRIP TO THUNDER BAY (5)
MONDAY, JUNE 9, 2008

2008-06-17T04:35:00-05:00

People are permitted at Kakabeka Falls today, and I have just been down to see them, and to feel their power. The constancy of water. The obstinance of rock. The struggle is heroic. Water goes where water will. Rock holds...



IVAN BURGESS'S ECHO ECHO

2008-06-17T04:33:00-05:00

"Maybe it's just me," Ivan said, "but I don't seem to see as many people carry bottles of water as I used to. Maybe they decided to take a drink of water before they left home." "You know," Ivan said,...

2008-06-17T04:31:00-05:00

Sunshine and blue sky this morning. Temperature is in the mid-50s. The aroma of coffee brewing for my wife as she sleeps yet a few minutes more. I'm showered, facing the prospect of some tough days at work. A young...



LINES FOR JUNE 16

2008-06-16T04:37:00-05:00

I make my notes. I race the sun. How long can this go on?



A TRIP TO THUNDER BAY (4)
SATURDAY, JUNE 7, 2008

2008-06-16T04:35:00-05:00

I walked the breadth of Thunder Bay today, down Algoma from Munro, west on River Street nearly to the Thunder Bay Expressway, south on Junot to Red River Avenue and back to Algoma, up Algoma to Fountain Lake, across the...



WE ARE STILL HERE

2008-06-13T08:19:31-05:00

Four tornado sirens in half an hour, then one again later. No tornadoes. Five inches of rain on top of five inches the day before. Water running over the road by the dam was stopped with two truckloads of gravel...



LINES FOR JUNE 13

2008-06-13T04:37:00-05:00

Road crew - The work takes one man. The watching, three.
