A short meta-human leap from here, in a northwesterly direction, is the neighbourhood familiar to many of us that is called Bloorcourt Village. This neighbourhood, like many on our gorgeous planet, is worth visiting for millions of good reasons. One of them is the Monkey's Paw bookstore. I enjoyed a wander in there a week and a bit ago and left with a book I had only previously found in various reference libraries. Now I can read it wherever I want. I can read it with my cat. Anyway please give those folks a look-see when you can. If you like us then you probably like them too. 
See our plant? It flowered. 
There are some important items of business this month. Why dilly-dally when I can get right to it eh? Caversham will be 30 on October 15th. A Tuesday is not the right day for an anniversary such as this so we will instead have it on Sunday, October 27th. Please see below for the rectangle that contains all the information.
As we head deeper down the rabbit hole where the lines between human beings and pumpkin spice become extremely blurry we look forward to CADDRA this weekend. This is followed by many scrumptious happenings before we see Gabor Maté on October 21st. Once we dust ourselves off from that we have the OPA Fall conference on the final Saturday of the month. We live in an era in which it is very rewarding to cart books around and say hello to people. We do. . .yes we do.

Caversham's 30th anniversary!

Desire and its Interpretation: The Seminar of Jacques Lacan | Book VI
Lacan, Jacques, Edited by Jacques-Alain Miller

What does Lacan show us? He shows us that desire is not a biological function; that it is not correlated with a natural object; and that its object is fantasized. Because of this, desire is extravagant. It cannot be grasped by those who might try to master it. It plays tricks on them. Yet if it is not recognized, it produces symptoms. In psychoanalysis, the goal is to interpret – that is, to read – the message regarding desire that is harbored within the symptom. [More. . .]
