Also, I was up early this morning, baking chocolate cakes and heard it on CBC Radio’s World Report. I am beaming and thrilled to bits. So, so exciting!!
Earlier this summer, I was able to share that “aha” moment of bookbinding with a group of women through Sister Writes, a non-profit writing workshop for marginalized women in Toronto, founded by author Lauren Kirshner.
The Paper Place donated the gorgeous Nepalese cover paper and we added bits of decorative paper to the covers.

JP and Elah are two of the loveliest folk! And they create the fabulous “I Like You” podcasts (“a podcast about two people looking for like”)
We chatted about criteria for love letters (emails don’t count!), love poems to brunch and the inside scoop on The Love Lettering Project (“the poems are like a good kiss, not a full on make out session!”) Listen to it here!
“Let’s start a love letter revolution!”
Some love and beautiful photos of some found love letters from self-described “pedal paparazzi,” Xander Labayen at the fabulous site: 416 Cycle Style.

As one of three pieces in Scienceography at the Toronto Fringe Festival, Organ Stories is choreographed and costumed by Susan Kendal, performed by Krista Posyniak, with poetry by Lindsay Zier-Vogel. Featuring large, knitted exo-organs worn on the dancer’s clothes, Organ Stories offers both factual and poetic information about the lungs, uterus, heart and brain. The choreography muses on the mechanics and emotional connotations of each organ.
Scienceography is a three-part journey exploring and abstracting science through movement as a physiologist works through a series of “lectures” on various organs, a mayfly’s ephemeral life unfolds on stage, and a two-in-one woman considers dialectical theory from the inside out.
Dances by Brittany Duggan, Susan Kendal and Krista Posyniak, presented by Pocket Alchemy.

branches and smaller
