Well friends,

Here I am at the edge of the Atlantic with a cool sea fog drifting over the city of Halifax. Dropped in on Porter Airlines - gotta love the service and the stewardesses uniforms - very retro!

I'm here thanks to the good folks of the Cobourg Poetry Workshop who rallied together and sent cash support to underwrite my trip and make sure Cobourg and its poet laureate are represented here at the poet laureate pow wow! If you're here in Halifax or its environs do stop by our performances and workshops starting tomorrow at 9 pm at The Company House, 2202 Gottingen Street : PLs Linda Rogers (Victoria), Hugh MacDonald )PEI), Pierre DesRuisseaux (Canada) and Ann Margetson (Spring Pulse Poetry Festival) and of course, the organiser of the whole kit and kaboodle - Shauntay Grant who is the PL of the fine city of Halifax.

More as it comes!
