fall back: the last good day
* * *
fall back: the last good day is a poem from my completed manuscript, tentatively entitled Hump, that should be on a stack of similar manuscripts at the offices of the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick (this is my roundabout way of saying I submitted it for their manuscript prize and so met the must-get-it-done goal I set for myself this summer...).
I wrote the poem a few years ago and shot the video this past October but this fall and that coupla-years-ago fall were very similar: no snow until quite late in the season. So they seemed to jibe.
In any event, I decided I wanted to see how the two fit together recently, after the multimedia intensive that was the HOT AIR blog but also after completing a text/image workshop at Video Pool.
Thanks to M for the editing assistance, especially as Aa is currently resisting sleep the way, well, that I resist most everything EXCEPT sleep. Her reluctance to rest is tiring for us (as it extends what are already very long days with her) but also cuts into our get-stuff-done time in the evenings.
Thanks to B for most things but also for the video-poem-ing inspiration.
(I know I owe an Art from the Heart post, but I'm not done processing how I felt about the event and my work in the event, so...that'll have to wait.)
