TAKE A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE


Rarely does bathroom graffiti ring so true. I spotted this at Dépanneur Café, in Montreal, on March 6, 2020, the last time I sang in public. I snapped a photo because it resonated with the animist in me. Since then,…

THE CENTRE OF THE WORLD

 


THE CENTRE OF THE WORLD

When I wrote the words to “The Centre of the World,” a track from my first album, in 2005, I hadn't yet heard the neologism “solastalgia.” But, looking back, I…
