it seems the ‘school age’ walking stick is stuck at the border
the stick made it to L’aéroport international Montréal-Trudeau
and made friends with airport staff!!
and where was it off to you wonder?
no where fast!
i am going to put my money on ‘trouble at security’
“what do you mean ? this stick a threat? can you not see the art in action?!?”
this fine airport staff informs me that the stick is laid up in the airport’s lost & found!
i am all at once delighted and distraught
this is the main airport that sets me free on the world
a place i am fond of, filled with memories (…where were you when you heard Michael Jackson was dead? i was at the montreal airport)
AND just imagine all of the amazing other contents of a montreal airport lost & found!
i made a plea for the stick to be set free
it is on a great journey
it is meant to wander
only time and the interest of strangers will tell
my thanks to my collaborators at the airport
you are part of the art
travel well ‘school age’ stick
…try the bus.
