Most Iconic

dinner along the amazon

7pm

Vancouver Public Library | Raining

main floor, main branch, Robson Street,

before it was Virgin, and Victoria’s Secret, and empty before –

Timothy Findley.

A most iconic author

stood, and read.

An ambulance passed, fast in the rain, lights reflecting off that sheer glass façade –

Timothy Findley:

a most iconic author,

stopped, and breathed.

He stood and said nothing, just closed his eyes a moment.

Then,

“I always say a prayer whenever an ambulance goes by.”

A most iconic author.

Crazy Meta Tag Mania!

I’ve written a crazy long list of possible meta tags for my soon-to-be-released novel, The Erenwine Agenda. Feels like building the base of a good stew, creating a yummy dessert. Rich chocolate. You get the idea. Makes me happy to see it so I thought I’d share. It’s like a reflection back on the past five years of research-writing-editing. 🙂
