January 2021: In My Notebook

2021-01-13T13:38:17-05:00

This regular feature on BIP altered during the past year; my favourite on-the-move notebook sprouted a layer of dust because now that I’m consistently sitting at my desk, I often choose to key my notes directly rather than handwrite. For rereading, I still appreciate handwritten notes; that way, I’m

Reflecting: 2020’s Reading (Stats and Stuff)

2021-01-11T16:38:42-05:00

Witness: Carol Shields’ Happenstance and The Stone Diaries

2020-12-27T14:27:37-05:00

The call for witnesses in The Stone Diaries resonates throughout Shields’ work: “Life is an endless recruiting of witnesses. It seems we need to be observed in our postures of extravagance or shame, we need attention paid to us. Our own memory is altogether too cherishing, which is the
