Please note that Vino Novellus will not be held this year in Canmore (March 2017) due to low sales and enthusiasm. We are currently in the process of revamping the event to make it smaller and more sustainable and hope to offer it again soon.

Up coming events & News

Honored to have a story included in this upcoming anthology with the likes of Reinhold Messner, Wade Davis, Pat Morrow, and Amy Gigi Alexander among many others whom I admire.

Mine is a story of a journey many years ago that took a long time to fully understand. A snippet:

"The thing was - we knew it would end. It had to end, it was supposed to. We enjoyed the beer and sun without much thought to responsibility or pace because that was all going to be decided for us very soon, and there was no telling exactly when. Pre-emptively, the eight others had decided to leave several times now, and we’d pursued the farewell parties in such earnest that they’d missed the Karnataka bus each time.

We’d swim in the mornings and climb out of the surf and pass the stalls selling cold drinks and knick-knacks and Seven-Seas. Jim said, “Know why Shiva has so many incarnations? So they can sell anything to anybody.”

Jim was world-weary in his broader sense. I couldn’t guess his age. Maybe 30. He looked much older, but he was gregarious in small things, always giving things to the young boys running up to practice their English. In the oppressive heat on the way back to the empty fishing village, Jim said, “This monsoon is a hoax: it’s a way for the locals to get a break from the crowds.”
