Janet Anne Holmes February 24, 1932 - June 16, 2014

Much loved mother of Rachel and Jessica, surrogate mother to many more. Janet's passions included First United Church, singing, VSO, the Food Bank, Amnesty International, soccer, the Tour de France, Doctors Without Borders, and the Council of Canadians. Celebration of life at St. Andrews Wesley Sunday, June 22nd at 7:00 PM. In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations made to the Food Bank.

Kristeva, speaking directly to what I'm up to:

"All functions which suppose a frontier (in this case the fissure created by the act of naming and the logico-linguistic synthesis which it sets off) and the transgression of that frontier (the sudden appearance of new signifying chains) are relevant to any account of signifying practice, where practice is taken as meaning the acceptance of a symbolic law together with the transgression of that law for the purpose of renovating it."

("The System and the Speaking Subject," in The Kristeva Reader, ed. Toril Moi.  Blackwell, 1986, p. 29)

ACT (Aesthetically Claimed Thing): L-O-V-E

"44. Add them together and you get 8. The number of years younger that I am. The hours of sleep neither of us ever get. The times your cat has barfed on my new white rug. I can tell it's going to be a momentous year."

Less than 30 days and counting!

"When I saw Steely Dan in Rome with a group of Italian friends and relatives one of them noticed how quiet I got before the show and he said to me, '[Y]ou're very moved to see them aren't you?' Me, I said, nah, seen them dozens of times, no emotional upheaval going on here. But I was lying."

"Hey CJB,

That photo, Radius (2014), you posted on your blog: The building on the right is my old residence, Maybern Manor, 1617 Fir St. My apartment was at the back of the building. When I stepped out the back door I stood directly under the Granville overpass. A binner named Gary slept just outside the fence of my tiny yard. One day at Duthie's M. Varty put the mini fridge out in the alley to defrost. It wasn't there ten minutes when some binner scooped it up. I got home that evening and the mini fridge was in my yard with a note that said '$20? Let me know. Gary.'

Thanks for making me homesick for the shittiest walk-up in Kits."

(My pal & PFB alumnus Suzanne Hawkins, off tomorrow to the AGO, possibly to see Scott McFarland's ABC Photocolour, 4th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, 2011, a co-ordinate point for Radius).
