Bookish Butch Esq.

Winner GBLT category

I hope this post,

finds all of you,

well,

happy,

in,

tip top,

Summer shape.

I am feeling fantastic,

fabulous,

and,

clear headed strong.

I spent a most enjoyable,

weekend,

caught up with my love,

spent a good portion,

of Sunday,

exploring and photographing,

Ottawa,

a pretty town.

Took the bus back to,

the beautiful ugly,

through pretty farm lands,

bright sunshine,

a good book,

alone with my ideas,

my thoughts,

allowing my mind to wander.

Quite the luxury,

time to yourself,

I get more than most,

I feel I need it,

sometimes,

to balance,

what my lady calls,

my social butterfly side.

Monday was very quiet,

reading Henry James on the balcony,

a few errands,

but,

quiet,

I like my week to begin,

quietly.

I visited my accountant,

yesterday,

I used to own a bookstore,

this required,

tax forms,

too complex,

for the mathematically challenged butch,

that I am.

I closed the bookstore,

but,

the last tax return needed to be,

done,

of course, I was late, but, no biggie

it occurred to me,

after Nadia, the lovely Russian woman who does my taxes, asked me if I would keep a business name, if I would continue working for myself…

I should create a new,

name for my creative,

endeavours,

I’ve had a biz name and email,

associated with my former bookstore,

for ten years,

but,

I don’t want to keep it,

I want to keep,

the past in the past,

I want to keep moving,

forward.

So,

I came up with,

and,

secured a new name,

bookish butch esq.

nope,

I am not a lawyer,

nor  an aspiring knight

😛

but,

I do like the sound of it,

the connotations,

gentleman butch,

bookishbutchesq,

has a certain,

je ne sais quoi,

even,

rakish,

quality about it,

I think,

I hope.

So that’s my new branding,

and,

I ordered some cards,

not too many, trying it out:-)

They simply state,

I write, I photograph,

and,

the flip side has the new header picture on it.

I liked the shot I had before,

very much,

but,

it belonged to a friend of mine,

this one is all mine.

I write, I photograph,

I am bookish butch Esq.

Living the dream,

lucky butch.

Be well all of you,

chin up.

Later girls,

BB

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. Thanks Alex, nope no plans to move the blog, WordPress works for me, I intend- as my creative endeavours evolve to perhaps have a website that links and showcases all the different parts of bookish butch Esq. but, Bookish butch the blog remains the centre piece, for now.

  2. Congrats on your new name/brand. I like it. It’s jaunty. It’s exciting to see your new endeavors take shape. I’m so happy to be here to see the process unfold on this end. Keep up the good thinking/creating/work!!!
