Hello world. I'm back for a moment to say hey, after which I'll be disappearing for another week due to heading off for a family vacation. I've actually been itching a bit to write, but when you take a chunk of time off there's so much to say it can be hard to know where to begin. Therefore it was nice to receive an email that has given me a place to start in getting back into my blogging habit.
Last week I heard from Stephen Pierson, publisher of Canteen Magazine, about an upcoming event (details in a moment). I had a subscription to Canteen when it first came out and enjoyed the mix of imagery and writing, including poetry and essays. Over the last year I let all of my subscriptions lapse (including, gasp, The New York Times) as a way to tighten the belt. I was quite excited then when Stephen very kindly offered to give me a comp on the next four issues when I mentioned I used to subscribe; I'm looking forward to catching up and exercising my brain, something that's been severely lacking this summer.
The event in question is described below; I wish I could attend but, as mentioned above, we'll be away. Here's all of the info you need should you be in town, sounds like a fun night out:
