This will be happening on Saturday, September 27th, 2014 at Canisbay Lake Campground in Algonquin Park.
Here are the salient details:
- I plan to appear at sunset (7:02pm EDT) at the My Wild Canada Campout
- I will do selected readings from the Journal of My Last Spring. I plan to have some new (i.e., previously unrevealed ) material.
- I will entertain questions about my life, the mystery, and speculate on what will be in store for next year.
- Finally, to close out the event (about an hour’s length), I will propose a toast – “Pour One for Tom.” You guessed it – that first shot of whisky will be poured into the ground in his honour to reflect on what we have lost in him, but also on what we have gained from him.
After these formal proceedings, we will finish the bottle of whisky (as Tom would do), and I will disappear back into the darkness, as if I was never there.
If you want to know who I am, you will be disappointed as the organizers don’t even know my identity. Be content that this is being done in the spirit and memory of Tom Thomson.
If you want more details on the campout, please contact the My Wild Canada folks.
I’ll see you in Algonquin on September 27th!
