This is where I’ll be working during my stay at the Banff Centre over the next four weeks—a cabin in the woods that’s part of the Leighton Artists’ Colony. Joni Mitchell worked out of this space for a week or so a few years ago. Apparently she received few visitors, and spent most of her time shooting pool with the Banff Centre staff. I think a few of cigarettes got smoked here. Lots of wildlife walks by the cabin, which has a small deck, a kitchenette and this baby grand piano. I have to keep the doors shut when I play so I don’t bother my colleagues in the cabins through the trees. You can see my desk in the corner by the sliding doors.
