Alberta writer Greg Hollingshead, who is director of the Writing Studio program at The Banff Centre and Professor Emeritus at The University of Alberta, just wrapped up a residency in the Leighton Artists’ Colony. Working in the Cardinal studio, the Governor General Award-winning author penned, for our blog, a handful of aphorisms to brighten, or at least enlighten, your week.
A Week of Thoughts for the Day from the Cardinal
Sunday: Most of us are as attracted to politics as we are unwilling to change ourselves.
Monday: We’re making the life we see, so we’d better keep our eyes open.
Tuesday: Some have the right to be offended, no one has the right not to be.
Wednesday: A dog is caught up in saving its skin, a man is caught up in saving his image of himself.
Thursday: Ghosts are traces of old emotion, not spirits but time scars.
Friday: The world is not partitioned, it’s in fragments, like something broken.
Saturday: Social morality is behaviour prescribed to defend the status quo.
