this dream was left at turcot yards in the off-chance that “neath” author of the blog “walking turcot yards,” would come across it. (the site “neath” is great, check it out…it’s  in the blogroll.)

in north bay they have an anti-staple by-law. they also have people who take their political favorites very seriously. after I had finished taking this photo a woman drove up in a car and demanded I remove “that sign” right away. she told me I was on private property and so I asked if she was the owner. she replied yes, but I didn’t believe her because of the way her nose twitched.

roger perras got the idea to use my dreams as the lyrics for a song, and the song playing in this video (well, you are only hearing about half the song) is the result. it is, i think, a very beautiful song.

roger perras: composition, guitar and vocals.

marco luna: filmed footage.

daniel elzinga, the director of white water gallery read the dream, he paused, then told me the dream might resonate with some of the residents of north bay. this is because last winter a dead newborn was found buried in the snow. I searched the internet and found this story printed in the toronto star. the person responsible for the infant’s death was found through d.n.a. testing and charged with failure to call for assistance in childbirth and infanticide.

Two North Bay teens made a grisly discovery Friday night as they came across the remains of an infant child. The boys were playing in a wooded area around 6:40 p.m. near Minto Road and Laurentian Ave. when they stumbled across the partially decomposed body. Members of the North Bay police were notified and sealed off the scene.
A coroner was on scene and an autopsy is scheduled to be performed as soon as possible at the Toronto Hospital for Sick Children.
Police investigators say they will conduct door-to-door interview with area residents. The wooded area where the remains were found is well-travelled with many trails but people have been asked to stay clear of the scene.
Anyone with information is asked to call police at 705-497-5555 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

I’m currently in north bay, ontario at the white water gallery. will be here for ten days only. strangely disconnected from any sense of place, so I find myself heading to the train tracks and the water front. have posted two dreams so far…but.

feel out of place.

staying with dan, the director of the gallery helps. super nice guy.

a sweet-looking, white-haired, elderly woman peered over her fourth floor balcony. I wanted to wave and smile, but for some reason I pretended I didn’t know she was watching me.
