Journal Entry 1 by wingPooker3wing from Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada on Thursday, June 23, 2011
I'm not a poetry kind of gal for the most part. I don't care for waxing on eloquently about wine and roses or walking in beauty and all that frilliness, but I loved these poems. There's no eau de joie. These poems are raw and hard and as biting as, I suspect, the arctic cold and, for that matter, the landscape.

I have a friend who used to work up north for months at time. He was required to come back to Winnipeg every few months to become "civilized" again, because he would (all his co-workers would) become a little bit unglued, unsettled, up there. Notwithstanding, he loved it up there. These poems remind me of him and why he loved it and why he had to leave it sometimes.
