We're Back - and Refreshed
After seven years, 274 Express events, dozens of collaborative initiatives, publications and special occasions, and more that 140 issues of our weekly Freshsheet newsletter - all of which are fueled by 100% volunteer effort, inspiration, energy and hours - we were feeling the need of a holiday this past summer.
So we turned down the volume for a couple of months. That allowed us to ratchet back the coffee intake, spend more time in the great out-there that surrounds and nurtures us, tackle that daunting stack of unread books, and finally get back to work on the long list of dormant projects we all harbour, whether manifesto, perpetual motion machine, libretto, self-portrait, banjo, juggling, great Canadian novel, xeriscape garden, thingmaking or high-octane distillation.
During this pause we were more occasional than regular, more whisper than shout. We thank those who stayed with us in the meantime, not least because we depend on your support and encouragement. Without which, this gift of creation and engagement would not have been, and will not be, possible.
