I lost my domain to a bot. I never thought that life would come to a place where I would be saying something like that and that people would even understand what I would mean by it. I mean, I don’t entirely understand it.
What I do know, is that in the fray of the spring and the chaos of not really having a home for some months I neglected to renew my domain. As a result, a machine bought it and has now made some ridiculous almost plagiarized design of my blog (even comes with some of my biography).
I am working on a new site courtesy of a poetic compatriot in Victoria. In the meantime, it has been a busy summer with little time for reflection and all the time in the world for gardens and greenhouses and friends and festivals. Wish I had made mention of all that has passed. It has been pretty awesome!
After a busy summer of feeling pleasant but strange living in Victoria, James and I have decided that we are making the move this fall to Nelson, BC. His birthplace, and a place I feel artistically and socially supported and inspired. It’s kind of like moving to an artist colony in many ways. I am so excited for new challenges in a smallish, but still city, environment nestled in the mountains with family and friends close by, a bustling arts community and some of the best coffee roasts in Canada(I know, I know, always with the coffee).
This also means I will be much closer to my family in Alberta (poet family not excluded)! Really looking forward to all that stablization has in store for me and for us, but especially so i can get back to the careful and excitable work of creation. I have so many new poems and stories and I can’t wait to get them off the page so they stop giving me dirty looks and yawning every time I speak to them.
It seems I have regressed in my entrepreneurial skills and seem to have advanced in my writing. Which is a trade off I can appreciate. however, I miss the blogging, and am on my way to a new domain with, I am sure, many new tales of all that the move has in store.
Thanks for sticking with me, I appreciate you!
