I will be posting four pages a week of my second book, with all the word balloons in place. This is from my preview book I presented at TCAF last month. I'll try not to be redundant with the comments I made on the pages I've already posted, but I've done sixty pages so far and I'm curently working on forty more to add to this book. There will be more editing that needs to be done, so if anyone wishes to make suggestions, by all means feel free to do so!

One of the things I miss about Toronto is the snow - ironically that was one of the reasons why we left. You really don't know what you'll miss til you don't have it. A snowflake is a beautiful thing until there are too many of them!! One of the things my McLuhan studies have taught me is that the way you learn about something is to take it away. What is the effect when a new technology apears then disappears? We get used to something when we have it all the time but when it's gone, it becomes precious, as McLuhan observed:

"When the globe becomes a single electronic web, with all its languages and cultures recorded on a single tribal drum, the fixed point of view of print becomes irrelevant - however precious."
