“making ordinary things special”

I’ve discovered that you can spend one week making ordinary things special… in your own back yard, and experience something like you never will again! All photos taken within a 2 hour drive of Ottawa.

This is something I wrote specifically for Hallowe’en some time ago, but I think it was really something else trying to get out… do you ever put on a mask when things are not going well, pretend that they are so it’s a bit easier to get through the day and, hopefully, no one will notice. When you wake up the next morning to try again… you put on yet another mask…. Today is a day of transformation, we take on a guise of our own creation. No one sees what’s beneath the mask, making it easier to complete the task.

Sometimes I think I think too much

What a wonderful day… this year I spent Valentine’s Day in an all day meeting at the Arc Hotel with 10 women that I have the privilege of working with, and yes I was the only guy! It was an annual meeting of the “communications team” on a project I’ve been working on for the past 5 years. As we all live in different cities, Ottawa, St. John’s and Boston, we try to get together once a year. After our first day’s meeting we went for a short skate/walk on the Canal, then dinner at Play Food & Wine. After

Checking the Form (a screenplay?)

Checking the Form (a screenplay?) The scene opens looking into a construction site, a building is going up. Lots of concrete, girders, re-bar, etc. The camera is POV of someone walking through the site towards two workers talking in the distance with raised voices. Along the way we see other workers talking in hushed voices, shaking their heads, and looking towards the two workers that are talking by the footings of the building… clearly everyone is alarmed, one might even say… panicked! Jim passes the camera and in to view… JIM “What the Hell is going on here now?” BURT

hidden in the windmills of my mind

Sometimes I think I think too much…

I took this photo this morning, seeing the pool through the pouring rain I decided against going for a swim as I didn’t want to get wet. I laughed at the oxymoron my own thoughts can create… and my thoughts just took off from there… do you ever try to not think of something by deliberately thinking of something else, only to have your thoughts fall back on themselves, and you end up thinking of the very thing you tried not to think about? Do you ever lie awake in bed, because your mind is so full of thoughts you

Ode to my Window Cleaner

Hey!! Mr. Window Cleaner… Thank you… for dropping in… I uh, well… I wasn’t expecting you… to be hanging there… outside my window… so early… Let me… uhhh, Let me go… put on some clothes…. I can see clearly now, the rain is gone, I can see all obstacles in my way Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day From the sky you arrive, and look at our lives, through the dirt and the grime of the city. You splash on your suds, you wipe them away, bearing

Where do you want to be?

I had an after thought about this piece, a clarification if you will… Sometimes a place is physical, and sometimes metaphysical! Just sayin’. Sometimes there are places you want to go, and places that you want to be… Maybe you’ve been there before, and maybe it didn’t work out…. Or maybe you’re not allowed, or you’re told you shouldn’t go. Sometimes there’s a “sign”, sometimes a “barrier”. And sometimes, sometimes it’s just a feeling… An everlasting feeling, an everlasting goodbye. You can choose to ignore the warnings, Ignore the signs, the barriers, the feelings… and you might get hurt, you
