You will recognize those words.   They are not mine but of one of my literary heroes, Samuel Beckett. My other favourite quote of his is: No matter Try again Fail again Fail better. Words to live by, or so I think, on any account. So where have I been, you might ask? Well, let me […](image)

Closing the Doorgordoneugenesticklandchumir

There was no denying that there was something seriously wrong with me. I’ll just say this about it: there was black blood in the bowl when I looked back down. I’ve become an expert over the years at avoiding the little aches and pains. I can sit here and write this because I have never […](image)

A Surprise Birthday Party — For Myself!gordoneugenesticklandgrandmas

Ten years ago I was facing what seemed then the rather grim prospect of turning 50. 50?! That seemed like a gigantic number when I was 49. How had I gotten to be so old? Surely there was a mistake! Was I done? Was my race run? Was I spent and washed out, through, finished, […](image)

Going into the next month or so, late August to late September, I find myself in a rather unique position, breathing some rare air, as they say. I have just returned from Wells, BC and a stint with the Sunset Theatre, a real gem and ray of hope in the Canadian theatre cosmology. I was […](image)

  It’s been a while, I know, since I spilled any electronic ink here on my blog.I hardly know myself where I’ve been. I could add I’ve been through one of those times when I feel I hardly know myself, period. Well, it happens. Life happens. Until it doesn’t. Anyway, I’m still here. For those […](image)

RIP, David BowiegordoneugenesticklandBowie

From time to time, I type out what I’ve written in my daily journal. This is from today, January 11, 2016. RIP David Bowie I woke up early again, too early. 4:30-ish. (Once upon a time, that’s when I went to bed. Whatever happened?) I looked on Facebook on my iPad (with a coffee in […](image)

Shop Locally This Christmas (Please!)gordoneugenesticklandDisplay of notebooks and pencil at Reid's Stationers

As many of you know, I wrote a novel earlier this year titled The Piano Teacher. Now that it’s Christmas, I hope that you will consider putting it on your shopping list, either for yourself or someone special who likes Canadian Literature. (Not to mention your kid’s piano teacher!) I know many people who seem […](image)

Helping The People Who Help The People Who Write The Playsgordoneugenestickland30-Stickland

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 20:39:09 +0000

This came in the form of an email from my old friend and brother in arms in the playwriting game, Neil Fleming, who is the current President of the Alberta Playwrights Network: I’m wondering if we can hit upon your goodwill as an APN member playwright to participate in an event we have coming up […](image)

I Had A Dream . . .gordoneugenesticklandIMG_1084

I had a dream that seemed so real. Let me see if I can recount it. I was to give a reading, presumably from my novel The Piano Teacher, though I don’t know if that was ever confirmed. It was to happen at the Jack Singer Concert Hall in Calgary, which is a big venue […](image)

  Standing outside Caffe Beano the other morning, I was approached by an elderly gentleman (even by my standards) who wanted to give me a free coffee card. I don’t know what it is about me, people seem to like to give me things. They say more serotonin is released when we give than when […](image)
