Meet me at the horse


How long before I next do the Beograd thing? Before I next go to meet someone at the horse before going to a cafe, the theatre or opera, the university, a bookstore? Or to lead a workshop, or to give a lecture or reading?

The horse statue everybody knows: the great Prince Mihailo, long dead, leader, cast in bronze heroic in the theatre square off Kneza Mihailova, in front of the National Theatre.

How long before I again walk those streets cobbled or paved? How long before I walk passed the out-of-doors cafes that can seat thousands of patrons?. How long before I again stand, or sit on the wide stone steps below the horse, waiting . . . ?

WHY NOT LOOK INTO A RESIDENCY, 3MTHS, 6MTHS, 1 YEAR?

Someday the book's title page, the clothing lable, the storefront window may say Fredericton - Beograd. That could be a great thing! Not expansion but recognition of breadth of activity, interest and commitment.
