30 Days of Poetry - Day 22
April 21, 2014.
Not always easy,
but sometimes beautiful.
It will all happen again.
You can’t fight it.

Doodler’s 30 Days of Poetry - Day 13
April 13, 2014.
With each lazy blink I grow more aware.
Oh I was asleep.
Hmn it’s the last stop.
It seems like the whole subway car is empty..
I see something in my peripheral vision.
That jacket looks familiar.
Oh that hair, that stare, that guy.
Sitting rigid, at attention, bug eyed and silent.
What is my life?
The 3 tones chime.
The doors open.
Run like hell.
Never look back.
Doodler’s 30 Days of Poetry - Day 10
April 10, 2014.
A long drawn out yawn becomes a resigned sigh.
Strained voice becomes a hoarse whisper.
Heavy, tired, spent.
Bloom, wilt, wither.
The end is a beginning.
Forever and again and always for us all.

The Embassy of Cambodia
By Zadie Smith
The Embassy of Cambodia was a short story by Zadie Smith in the New Yorker (Feb. 2013) and now Hamish Hamilton has published a wonderful pocket hard cover edition, which I recently received as a gift.
This story is beautifully crafted and is one that begs to be read and reread. Smith’s short work of fiction is a vivid portrait of humanity and society that will certainly provoke questions regarding complicity, suffering and relationships for the reader.
Today it’s articles! The majority of the pieces below were shared/sent to me by Paul. I guess he really knows what writers and themes/topics I’m interested in reading! :) (The George Saunders link is actually a video, not an article at all, but it is one of my favourites of 2013 and it fits well here - I’ve decided.)
Enjoy these finely crafted, thought provoking reads!

3D (just kidding, obvs) Just Breathe Lungs doodled during today’s morning RT ride, from my 3” x 2.5” art journal.
Spinach and cheddar crepe for me and 3 eggs over easy, bacon, toast and homefries for the gentleman.
Why does the east end have all of the good (& inexpensive) breakfast places? At EggsCrepes they give you the coffee in an insulated carafe. Yes.
“Nice try stone wall!”
