125 banker's boxes of science fiction and fantasy paperbacks in the front room, and another 1500 paperbacks and 400-odd hardcovers arriving in an hour.

Neil Young's This Old Guitar (a lovely, modest acoustic song off Prairie Wind, a duet with Emmylou Harris, the highlight of Jonathan Demme's recent Neil-in-concert documentary Heart of Gold) on the stereo, coffee close at hand, rain showers out in the street.

This old guitar ain't mine to keep
It's only mine for a while...

John Preston, 9 May 2006, 2006

A portrait of my bookseller friend and co-conspirator John Preston, of New Westminster's Renaissance Books, on the MV Spirit of Vancouver, en route to a collection of 140 boxes (!!!) of science fiction and fantasy pocket books in scenic Sidney-by-the-Sea, 10 minutes from the ferry terminal. Going back today for the other half of the collection that wouldn't fit in John's van.

A kind of gloss on Tolagson's Fleet pictures; ever since seeing them I've wanted to make an "art photograph" set on a BC Ferry. Hundreds of bad pictures, but nothing worth keeping until yesterday.

The camera's memory card packed up and died in the course of transferring the sequence of mostly (non-art) images accompanying this picture. 10pm-4am last night at the store, installing patches, new DLL libraries, etc. Home near dawn, birds singing in the trees!

ACT (Aesthetically Claimed Thing): Erwin Wurm's amazing 3 minute video projection, I Love My Time, I Don't Like My Time. Screened at Banff by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts curator Rene de Guzman, and claimed both for the work's content and title.

One short cut that wasn't. 45km up the Gray Creek Forest Service road, about halfway between Kimberley and the Kootenay Lake ferry.

The Incredible Talking Cats and a new friend in bustling downtown Banff.
