H.D. (Hilda Doolittle) later in life - from a photograph. I used a crude $2. bamboo reed pen, which I probably shouldn’t have, it blots and delivers too much ink at whim, and normally I like how using it refuses too neat a drawing, but can’t say if it worked here, and a dip pen to finish. Part of a project.

Birthday Bash/Book Launch Photos!

The most fabulous and my first birthday party ever! March 7, 2018 at Pauper's Pub in Toronto. Spectacular and so loving I am still quite overwhelmed (about 60 people came, wow!!). It couldn't have been better! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to share this special day with me. Much love!

                                                                                                                                                                            

Thanks to my brother, Allan Clews, and my son, Adrian Henderson, for all their help, and John Oughton, for snapping the pics. (They are a bit blurry because I increased the exposure by 1 stop for the darkened room and then forgot that the camera must be held very still. Ah well, I love the photos and am so glad I have them!)

For everyone's names, see the Fugue in Green album in Google Photos.

Birthday Bash/Book Launch, Wed March 7, 7-9pm, Pauper's Pub, upstairs


My Birthday Bash/ Book Launch is this week, Wednesday, March 7th, 7-9pm at Pauper's Pub (upstairs in the back, a lovely secluded area that seats 60-80 people), 539 Bloor St W (by Bathurst Stn and next to a Municipal Parking lot) in Toronto.

Come ​have dinner and drinks or just drinks and talk, chat, mingle, enjoy each other's company. I only intend to read for about 10 minutes - and my books, Fugue in Green, newly published by Quattro Books, and Tidal Fury, with Guernica Editions, will be available (each one singly is full price, and I'm offering a 25% discount on getting both together). I'll be reading only for about 10 min since what I most wish for is a party for all of us, a social evening for our community of writers and singer-songwriters. How often do we get together just to hang out and have a good time? No gifts - you are the gift.

p.s. Excuse the crazily-overdone flyer, I got carried away in Photoshop and every balloon and heart is a different layer! Now that's pure silliness.
