Message

Walked down to my office a couple of days ago and found a distress note slipped under my door. Eliott and Jade were trapped in Art Camp and in desperate need of food and drink. I fear I was too late as by the time I got the note Art Camp had finished for the summer. Alas for Eliott and Jade.

Lethbridge/Ottawa


Back and forth between the parking lot and the office. spring is dragging out tremendously windy and cold. Very unpleasant most of the time. but in another way incredibly invigorating.

Ottawa - March 28
the i -deal coffee shop. the spot where I read the Ottawa Citizen article about the end of the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography as an entity separate from the National Gallery. Apparently the Harper government wants the CMCP building to use as office space. I wonder when Harper will tell the National Gallery to move out because he wants that building for his walk - in closet.
March 27 - 9.26km, 28 - 15.05km, 29 - 9.86km.
Back in Lethbridge.

Back walking in Lethbridge. Lots of snow - huge snow for Lethbridge. There is no snow removal as the city prefers to wait until a chinook arrives for a melt. This has resulted in considerable disruption in driving and walking. Deep snow and ice on all roads and sidewalks.
