Today was my first time ever in Hamilton, attending the GritLit festival, where I read with Trevor Cole and my brother Michael. It happened to be the night of Hamilton's monthly Art Crawl, with galleries open and the downtown alive with buskers and pedestrians. I love Hamilton. I had an idea I'd love it, and as soon as I walked downtown I was struck by its originality, its confident old grandeur, its touches of unnecessary beauty everywhere juxtaposed with old brick and remnants of billboards and derelict warehouse walls. I'd love to stay for the big weekend market, and I'd really like to go down by the water and see the old factory buildings, but there isn't time on this visit. But I hope to make a safari of it sometime down the road. There's an unpretentious atmosphere and a gravity of substance that I'd love to get to know better.
