Absalom Shade & Galt in the Rain

The name Absalom Shade sounds like a character Johnny Depp might play in a movie, but he was actually a city father in southern Ontario.  The eighteenth-century founder of Shade's Mill would be proud of this singularly beautiful little hamlet today.  Part of Cambridge, and now called Galt, it is also the location where I taught my workshop this past weekend.  My full report will follow soon.
