The NFB informs me that it is Paul Gross's birthday today. So happy birthday, sir. In celebration, an NFB short - and even if you're not a Paul Gross fan, worth watching I think; for the ways in which he speaks about writing and creativity - about setting ego aside so it doesn't get in the way of a story. The last few phrases, when he talks about the courage of soldiers in WWI (this must have been made when Gross made Passhendaele) - reminds me not of military war, but the other, more domestic and gendered violences so many of us endure and survive.
