first edmonton

two of many big mother safety features found in student res:

it was about 12:20 am (3:30 am fred time) that i got through check-in and into my room in schaffer hall. air can was late leaving toronto because of refueling but arrived onlt 3 minuted behind schedule. poet mick burrs was on same plane and he suggested that i might get a drive into ed with his ride with the incoming pres, maurice mierau (from winnipeg), and his father. it worked. was driven to the door of lister con centre. thanks!

article on rob mclennan, incoming writer-in-res @ u of alberta on the bottom of the same book page in today's journal.
