I'll be out in the Quebec countryside this weekend - out where there's already four or five feet of snow and more falling! Not sure if there will be reliable internet access or not - I think we'll have dial-up and, if so, I'll be posting some photos and comments. Mostly I'm looking forward to a different weekend than the last trip - I've packed my knitting and four books: a collection of Euripides' plays; "The Demons, Vol 1" by Austrian novelist Heimito von Doderer (has anyone out there read this? It is one of the strangest books I've ever read); Fresco, selected poems by Albanian poet Luljeta Lleshanaku (a gift from my qarrtsiluni co-editor Dave); and the Penguin edition of The Epic of Gilgamesh. And a couple of bottles of wine...the firewood is already there, even if we need to uncover it.
With four of us and an equal number of snow shovels, we ought to be able to manage just about anything the Quebec winter throws at us. So -- let it snow.
