# 34

What kind of story would Munish tell? After the production of #34, at Regina's Globe Theatre, I stayed for the opening night party. I chatted with Munish, congratulating him on his success as the playwright and performer. He told me that when he started developing the idea for this story he was prompted by the...

Genius!

There is a long-standing, strong, egoistic idea around IQ. Tests are given. People are rated. The higher the score the smarter the person and the more superior. Supposedly. I'm a teacher as well as a writer, so let me add this, "Yeah, right…" I have never had my IQ tested. I don't care. These tests... Continue Reading →

Thanksgiving and Complaining

Am I allowed to complain in this month of (Canadian) Thanksgiving? I’m in full swing. Teaching Monday to Friday. Also, writing Monday to Friday with daily meetings and words on the page.

This assignment was initially created to resolve the frequent phrase I hear whenever I assign a new art project: "I don't... Continue Reading →

Shepherd’s Call is Out

This Angie Counios blog is a meandering of thoughts. Sometimes there is a destination and sometimes there isn't. Sometimes I talk about the food I ate yesterday and sometimes I talk about my author life---that life I'm trying to nurture and grow with all the love and effort of an attentive parent. And like a...

A homage to Shepherd's Watch. They say you're not allowed to have a favorite. But I do. You'd think it was the first book, Along Comes a Wolfe because, well, it's the first book. You may even think it's the first book because it's won awards or because my face is under the plastic bag... Continue Reading →
