Thanks to the Nick Novak Scholarship in 2010, Unspent Love, Volume One is on its way to completion. Due November 4, along with an installation of artwork from the series, at Open Studio.
Incidentally, Tara Cooper, modeling in the image above, is the 2011 Nick Novak Scholar! Toot toot!

Another chapter of Unspent Love is up at Top Shelf. I'm so touched by Leigh's assessment, "With this series, Shannon is quietly stitching together a tapestry of human relationships that's devastating in its insight. In this installment, misheard lyrics mean more than the originals."
Thank you, Leigh.
BTW, the song is Lakes of Canada by The Innocence Mission. My all-time favourite band. I even love them more than Bruce Cockburn, more than Mike Doughty. I even love them more than John K Sampson.

I've been planning this website for a long while and finally finished it last night. James Gauvreau, one of the world's most beautiful people, did most of the work.
Internet, meet playingdoctor.ca
The Toronto Arts Council helped this come together.

What a satisfying, productive period the summer has been so far (a summer from work for me, though not by the calendar). Current projects are shaping up pretty well, so it looks like I am going to head out for westerly parts through the month of August afterall. I am squirrelly for a break from this city!!
Unspent Love, Chapter 11 is done. This one is terrifyingly sad for me. Gulp.
Two pages excerpted above. Click images for bigger versions.
Not sure when this will appear online at Top Shelf.
