She drops another big one onto a long grey-blue bunkhouse at the back of the Sulter property. I look away to type my glance back in time to see this one slip off the bare tin roof to the ground.

I’ve been worried about Misstree for a while.  More later. Foremost on my mind, can i transplant this gift and bring her lifeforce and mystery with us into the future?

The Screening Room – Kingston’s Independent Movie Theatre

Here is the link to  The Screening Room – Kingston’s Independent Movie Theatre. The screening room is a vibrant cultural gem at the centre of our fair city. I’ts a colloquial sentiment to express all the feels on this,  but clearly Wendy Hout is a positive force (sorry about the words not being well enough put together to really understand the kind of labour that goes into a project like hers. It is Her leadership and curation that have knitted many different people together through cinema. And that is why we need this super local venue to be accessible to all who are in the culture.

The screening room is something more. Something strong like the heartbeat of your soul. Where you live.
