It’s Victoria Day, and maybe you’re not even looking at a screen — I support you in that, if that’s your choice. These worthy posts will be waiting for you when you return.
My friend Owen Brlerley celebrated a birthday this week, which is a good reason to draw attention to the interesting things he blogs about on the website for the Edmonton Digital Arts College, where he is executive director. Case in point: this post on the power of being uninspired. (Photo taken from myedac.ca)
