Thanks very much for

Dan:

Thanks very much for that great review you did. Its really gives me a good feeling when you mentioned that your friend went through the book and was able to experience the real DTES--and leave her fears behind. That was the intention of the book. I wanted people to go through the poetry, the photographs and the diary and walk away with a better understanding of the people and the life of the area.

Is there any chance that Geist would include some of this work in their print edition? I think it would fit right in with the type of work they are showcasing.

Cheers and thanks again!

Why doesn’t anyone in North America say barmy for balmy? According to my research, Barmy came first and still enjoys a jolly life. But most North American dictionaries don’t even mention the earlier Scots barmy.
