Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada
11am Film Co-op script writer's workshop.
6pm Unitarian Church pot-luck dinner
1am Aaron is a street kid asking for change. Saturday night drunkards are his best shot. He squats with friends in a boarded-up house. He said he needs money for bus fare to get to school. I gave him a loonie.
I want change too. I am making a youth hostel/school for punks like him... and me. The building I want for The FAR OUT School is on Prince street, perched on a hill over-looking uptown and the Reversing Falls gorge. It has been vacant since the Knights of Columbus moved out several years ago. I sent a letter to the owners in Toronto a month ago, but have yet to hear back.
