‘Write because you must — respect your body and your brain. Listen carefully. Music helps. Repeat slowly. Then, riff. Invent. Create. Keep trying. Give and Take. Engage. Flow. Grow. And Go.’ Margaret Lindsay Holton
Welcome to Tea, Toast and Trivia.
Thank you for listening in.
I am you host, Rebecca Budd, and I am looking forward to sharing this moment with you.
I am beyond thrilled that I am travelling virtually to the southern shore of Lake Ontario where I will meet up with Canadian Artist & Author: Margaret Lindsay Holton MLH) at her fabulous ‘open-loft’ 2-storey studio on the Lake Ontario waterfront
Lindsay is a self-taught, born and bred Canadian artist, author, and filmmaker from Southern Ontario. She was voted ‘Arts Person of the Year’ by City of Burlington’s BEST Committee in May 2017, and an ‘Alumni of Influence’ by the University of Toronto in 2018.
Today, we will be discussing her recently published book of short stories, “Sticks and Stones: Ten Canadian Short Stories.” I invite you to put the kettle on and add to this exciting conversation on Tea Toast & Trivia.
Thank you for sharing this moment with Lindsay and me on Tea Toast and Trivia. And a very special thank you Lindsay for sharing our knowledge and experience. I want to end with these words from your introduction to Sticks & Stones:
It is my hope that these tales will stimulate greater interest in the reader’s own reading and thinking. I am also sharing them to those in the middle of their love affair with thought and language in the hope that the stories will nurture their own developing thought processes and evolving perceptions.
