Jaywalker free magazine of the arts was published monthly in Kingston, Ontario, Canada and is still available online at all times right here! We hope to get some version of it going again. For now, it is an archival site only.


Check out our old publisher's new blog, The Metaphor Observatory, with plenty of examples of contemporary metaphor in the media.

Inspiring Places, December 2003


A Bird's Eye View of Kingston #1: Rivers

Flight offers the artist or wordsmith a temporary release from the trappings of gravity, and a fresh view of stale sights. Whether one's interest lies in snapping aerial photos or capturing an ethereal mood on paper, one can always find quick, affordable inspiration in the sky.  

Geographically, Kingston has several rivers of varying size and development and miles of lakeshore, though its topography is somewhat subdued. By plane, however, it is a short leap to bumpier, tree-covered lands. Kingston's many industrial, commercial and residential developments are outstanding from above, both from an inspirational and an educational perspective.

Kingston Airport (Norman Rogers Airport) has both small planes and helicopters available for local flights, complete with eager pilots. For more information, contact the Kingston Flying Club, Ontario Fun Flyers or Frontenac Helicopter Services.

We've included a few photos from our own stockpile to act as a backdrop for this month's "Wordsmith's Intersection". In one photo, you see the dark markings of oil drops left behind as rivers of cars flow through intersections, and crystallize in parking lots. The aerial photo beside it shows a section of river grazing through marshland, fed by several small tributaries and covered by a skin of algae (image mirrored). The other images offer a short-lived view of the Montreal Street marsh, after the annual fire has had its feed, quenching its thirst at the river.
