Not A Book Review: The Historian

There is the dumb silence of slumber or apathy… the fertile silence of awareness, pasturing the soul… the silence of peaceful accord with other persons or communion with the cosmos. There is more to this book than I care to admit. And I hope you would indulge me a little as I look back on…

Into The Fold

We are only as linear as we allow ourselves to be. In my previous work so many moons ago, we clung to the concept of a multi-disciplinary approach. It was a hot term then, overly used in so many of our proposals and discussions – but for good reason. Statistical data is only as good…

Hollow

Imagine standing “inside a forest of every forest and every forest that’s ever been made.” One of my favorite writers, Herman Hesse, once proclaimed trees as “the most penetrating of preachers; they do not preach learning and precepts, they preach, undeterred by particulars, the ancient law of life.” Sometimes I forget the spirit of these…

“There is no love of life without despair of life.” – Albert Camus In a span of 48 hours, my heart has been broken in what feels like a million pieces. My beloved country has found a legitimate way to bury in the Heroes Cemetery the worst dictator in our history (or found a way…

Literature vs Traffic

A beautiful response to traffic, Luzinterruptus staged a literary river of 10,000 books overflowing on a busy street as part of Toronto’s annual Nuit Blanche. Literature vs. Traffic touches upon the implications of traffic and congestion by replacing an otherwise noisy polluted street with the written word. The art piece has been previously installed in…
