Wow!!! What a great storytelling performance! Two hours of personal narrative by Ivan Coyote, a storyteller, creative writing teacher, short story writer and novelist from the Yukon. She was funny, provocative, and honest ... and Tamarak, Carlos and I had a great evening. If you ever have the chance to watch her perform ... drop everything and go!
And now I must shovel some more gravel away from the house so that the wood can breathe and stop getting wet ... in the spot where "The Perfect Man" (you remember him perhaps from my writing blog ...) installed the stoop for the clothesline. He spent an inordinate amount of time filling in the gravel that is going to cause my house to rot if I don't move it now. Such is perfection.
