Walk This Way

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Walk as far as you can each day for many days, up and down mountains, past high country farms, through rain and sun, past ancient churches and modern towns. Can you explain to yourself why you’re doing this? Or does it matter? You are doing it. You must, somewhere in your mind or heart, know why, whether you can find the words for it or not.

It’s Friday night, and a

Creatures of Habit

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Why does a dog do the things it does? Dog owners and dog experts don’t always agree. When we got a mixed breed puppy we call Star (for a white galactic shape on her black chest) nearly four years ago, we had no children in the house, and we both had some time on our hands so inevitably we did a little reading about dog behaviour and training. There is a certain fascination i

When Art Strikes

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

We don’t choose them, those moments when art strikes us deeply. They are gifts.

This year, Charlottetown’s City Cinema decided to include opera in their program. The films they chose are from London’s Royal Opera at Covent Garden, and the February selection was Puccini’s last opera, Turandot. It’s an opera I’d never seen or heard except for the tenor aria, “Nessun dorma”, w

All Aboard

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Is it too soon to be thinking about summer? By the end of the month of April we will probably sense that our ungentle northern spring is gaining ground. Summer will eventually come, and for me summer evokes travel on the water, steamboats on lake and river, a canoe at the end of evening, a fisherman hunched in his wooden rowboat at the edge of a deep channel, rod

Vanity of the Present

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

A press release recently arrived in my inbox. “The Writers’ Union of Canada,” it said, “is watching with increasing alarm media reports about the closing of federally established research libraries.” That started me thinking. It’s a current and important political issue, but beyond that there’s a larger question of intellectual standards, of the whole relationship of past and p

Two Good Men

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Driving along the highway listening to the CBC, I was a little surprised to hear a familiar name mentioned. It took me back long years. I was less than ten years old, and we were on our way to or from church, and my mother was explaining why the hall next to Earlscourt United Church was named Peter Bryce Hall. She told me that Peter Bryce was the former minister,

A Child Is Born

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

The plump little boy, just over a year old, sits on a picnic blanket, a sand shovel in his right hand, a bucket in his left, his round face framed by a sun hat. The blanket is spread on thin grass growing in sand. The boy looks toward the camera, his expression a little questioning, almost confrontational. Beside him sits his mother, wearing pink summer blouse and

Alone in the Dark
Alone in the Dark

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

A room in the basement of an art gallery with a table at one end; a tiny bathroom with a piece of plywood over the tub; another bathroom, even smaller, where my chair had to be set on top of the toilet when I needed to open the door. I worked in the dim illumination from the red-orange safe-light, air tainted with the smell of chemicals, eyes straining to focus the

Going to the Movies

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

I don’t know when I saw my first movie. I only know it was when I lived in Toronto in the 1940s. What I do know is that not long after my tenth birthday we moved to a small town which had a movie theater only one block away from our house. I was too young to be allowed into night movies alone, but I soon became an addict of the Saturday matinees—the Bowery Boys, the Thr

Wherefore Art Thou?

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night.
Like softest music to attending ears.

Lines from one of the most famous scenes in the history of theatre, Juliet on her balcony, Romeo in the orchard below.

This spring, reading the memoirs of Alec Guinness, the British stage and film actor, I was reminded that it had been a while since we had seen any theatre off the

The Latest Gadgets

The Other Notebook
by David Helwig

Traditionally books are created and sold by publishers, and the author is sent an annual statement of how many copies were sold and paid a previously agreed royalty on those copies. This spring I received a royalty statement for Saltsea, my summer-on-the-Island novel, which was published in 2006, and to my surprise the statement included a small amount for sales of

Is this home?
Is this home?
by David Helwig

The Other Notebook

You’ll notice if you see me on the street that I’m not as young as I once was. Birthdays resonate with a slightly dire significance, numbers dropping into place like the black ball in the wrong pocket. Anniversaries prompt me to look back through the years I’ve spent on PEI, looking to set it down in words, to understand.

It was April of 1996 when I arrived on the
