The Photograph
by Kamelia Pezeshki

From the series "In the garden" by Kamelia Pezeshki

On the subject of gardens, the Renaissance philosopher Francis Bacon (1561-1626), writes that "it is the purest of human pleasures. It is the greatest refreshment of the spirit of man; without which, buildings and places are but gross handyworks".

Poem a Week
by Gary Michael Dault

Hot Night

close the window
the light is ashen tonight

there is a tear
in our hemisphere

catching the sun
in a concave mirror

there's no cool
in this young
tepid moon
so suddenly come

I'm wearing
my frosty
beekeeper's hat
but it doesn't help

I'd like a mint julep now
with tightly crushed ice

packed in an industrial glass
I'll be down at the corner
beside the blue streetlamp

Sanctuary at Aga Khan Museum (a documentation)

Step inside the gallery and already you'd feel the immersive and contemplative atmosphere, a calm space telling quietly stories of many parts of our conflicting and chaotic world. 36 leading artists, including Mona Hatoum, Brendan Fernandes, Ai Weiwei and Alfredo Jaar were invited to create designs for the 4 by 6 feet wool rugs and reflect their personal responses to the word sanctuary — whether that means refuge, sacred space, place of beauty, or something entirely unique.

Sanctuary at Aga Khan Museum, Toronto, continues through October 25, 2020.

Travelling Palm Snapshots
by Tamara Chatterjee

France (July, 2010) – I spend part of the summer skirting around the country side, exploring luscious gardens, church ruins and old castles. While peregrinating; I found myself down in a dungeons hole, it's usage exclusively obvious by the large arched stone stove and chimney. As I wandered back up towards the exit; a curious little creature stood standing precariously guarded at the top of the stairs.
