An early start at a private school in Ottawa

 
 
An early start at a private school in Ottawa, where I was warmly welcomed. This visit was sponsored by the Ottawa Writers Festival – many thanks, Leslie.

Then I met a poet friend for a pub lunch, and ended the afternoon at the National Gallery where I watched a segment of “The Clock,” a film that lasts 24 hours, is made up of short clips of many, many other movies all of which have a reference to time, and takes place in “real” time – in other words, if I’m watching from 4 to 5pm, that hour of the film covers the minutes from 4 to 5 pm. I loved it! Apparently the gallery has stayed open all night several times so people can watch the night-time segments.
