Escape velocity

Too busy for blogging this week. Just found out Xmas is on Friday, not Saturday as I'd been planning around, so bit of a scramble. During scrambles this broadside popped up from the mass of stuff. It was printed by a couple of friends c.2007 at the now-defunct Strathcona Press. They organized a small show of their broadsides, inviting a few people to write something about their connection to the land. Yes, they were hippy types, but I liked them anyway. I was surprised when I was included in the invitees, but wanted to reply and so this is the best I could come up with. Defying gravity seems a suitable topic at this time of year. Merry merry to all.
