home is where the art is

Something fantastic has been happening in Calgary this weekend. What’s been so special for Sara and I is that we have been at the heart of it. You see this weekend was the opening (and closing) of The House Project. Curator Caitlind Brown described it as follows:

no business like snow business

It’s been a long, cold and unusually snowy winter by Calgary standards. In November when the first snow came I lost my car phone-charger. I surmised that I must have dropped it in the snow outside the house. Turned out to be true when last week we had the first thaw large enough to reveal [...]

the red rose and the wild rose

My first post after getting back to dear old Blighty spoke of my challenges acclimatising. That didn’t last long; after a week or two I was really feeling back in the swing of the things and starting to appreciate what it was I had come home for. It was great to be back with friends [...]

packed

I’ve been meaning to write an epic post reflecting on my time in Calgary and looking to the future but to be honest I’m knackered! Proper cream crackered: physically and emotionally. But my bags are finally packed and I’ve just got some tidying up to do, drop off a few things at the office and [...]
