irony in freedom


He stood, a point
on a sheet of green paper
proclaiming himself the centre,

with no walls, no borders
anywhere; the sky no height
above him, totally un-
and shouted:

Let me out!

- Margaret Atwood, Progressive Insanities of a Pioneer

flotsam and jetsam

Some updates, not that they really matter:
  • For October, the Toronto Public Library is holding a month-long art display at the North York Central branch. Ten of my photos, including a little blurb about this here blog is mounted on the wall. Go check it out if you like, but we we're not forcing you. Really.
  • Earlier this month, Shantel was in town with her roommate Nicoletta for Nuit Blanche. We went out just to browse all the arty things that were in store for the night, not really intending to stay too long. But then a series of funny incidents and random encounters led us to staying out much later than expected. We essentially got home a little before 3am. (And to think, I anticipated to be home before midnight...)
  • Also, I just recently jumped on to the bandwagon and watched The Social Network with Georgia, and to be frank, we didn't expect it to be as intellectually intense as it actually was. It's kind of interesting to note that the roots of Facebook and its conception, like most things men create in life, always involve a girl. This observation doesn't pertain to the "intellectual" bit of the story at all, but it resonates with a topic that I've been meaning to write about on here. I'll probably get around to doing that in the near future.
  • But of course, it's Thanksgiving weekend, so enjoy your days off! (if you're in Canada)
