I have an article about the American election coming out in tomorrow’s Lebanon Valley News in New Hampshire. It’s called, “From Canada, with Envy.” I am happy the trip to the US yielded at least one publication. There are a few more publications coming up, closer to home here in Montreal, and so a muted Huzzah! for that.
Not much else to be optimistic about from these last few weeks, to be frank. The freelance work has been enough to stay solvent, but no real big “breaks” yet. I’ve worked hard, chased every opportunity I could, even joined an online freelance agency, but so far, it’s the old contacts that continue to pull through for me.
On the home front, there is always solace – regardless of what happens professionally – in having a wonderful girlfriend, not to mention Banchi the kitten, who tears around the house like a comet. The other day, Monika took Banchi to the park and let the furry black scamp sniff around the place. In the distance, squirrels started to sit up and gaze at the feline visitor. Then about a dozen of them moved in, inching closer and closer. They clearly had malicious intentions toward little Banchi. Monika gathered up Banchi in her arms and departed, but wherever she went, the local squirrels were unnaturally curious in what she was carrying.
Every now and then, a neighbourhood cat will jump on the ledge outside my kitchen window and peer in. They must know little Banchi is inside. Thus far, Banchi has been an inside cat. I wonder what it will be like if and when we unleash her on the big world some day.
