Books & Walks...
Hello! I am currently, slowly, updating my website. Please be patient with glitches & check back in time for Canada Day, when everything should be shipshape.
In mid-March, that pile of books (see above) was my hastily-assembled reading for the quarantine period. Now it's late June and I'm still working my way through Dante & Shakespeare. In a fit of organization, I decided to read the Bard's plays in the order they were first performed; that means I started with Henry VI, part 2. And it was great! I'm up to the year 1599 at the moment. I'm lucky to have a beautiful back porch where I can read, and the weather's been just gorgeous for socially-distanced walks around the neighbourhood.
I'm also thinking a lot about Paris, because I'm developing a series of podcast audio walks--if you're interested, check out my evolution as I learn how to podcast, and if you haven't already, please do subscribe to my newsletter to stay up to date. Happy Midsummer Night/BONNE FETE DE LA MUSIQUE!
"Critical, darkly funny and painstakingly lyrical" - The Globe and Mail
"As if we're reading notes scribbled by the expatriate freelance writer in a car bouncing along a dirt road in Kenya, or on a late-night intercontinental flight... Pasold's work is the poetic equivalent of living out of a suitcase." - The Toronto Star
