Well, as they do say in some circles, let the good times roll. I've had this idea in my head for a blog (a word that I don't like all that much) to communicate with others - through video, audio, stills & text - who are interested in the creative human beings who inhabit their cities. These inhabitants/artists bring eccentric, unique, fun, moving, thought provoking, comforting experiences to share with everyone around them. The people I will post about are essentially creative types who love to create experiences for people to gather around ie. The Musician, The Comedian, The Chef, The Actor. You could put them all into one descriptive title "The Entertainer". To begin with the blog will mostly be centred around Edmonton because that is where I am staying at the moment - hence the title. And Edmonton I have to say, "There are amazing things happening in your city and you should be out experiencing them." "Why?" You ask. "Because Edmonton that is how you expand your mind, come together as a community and build culture." Okay, okay, I'm done with my soap box. Actually, I'm never really done with my soap box as I could go on about strip malls, urban design, mass transit, local consumption and a pleather of other topics for quite some time. BUT!! I won't, not yet anyway, not until you at least get to know me and hopefully like me enough to listen to my radical ideologies. HA! So just to start I'm posting a picture of myself and my two sisters that was taken at my Dad's woodpile business - we all grew up here just 13km southwest of Stony Plain on a little acreage that had been in my family for 4 generations. Catch you all in the next post.
