About

Peter Fulton is a writer with a love for every style from comedy to haiku. This site will be a showcase of my passion for the written word, though, if you want to bring it to life, I recommend reading while doing an interpretive dance. For the haikus, let me suggest the two-step.

    My dad really enjoyed your writing. He’d gotten used to seeing you at Eglinton subway station, picking up your writing, and reading it on his way to work. He hasn’t seen you in a while, and he was wondering if you’re doing ok (he was worried since the story about your arrest), and if you will be back. (I told him I’d look up your blog and see if I find anything; since I didn’t, I figured I’d write you a quick email.

      Thank you for the interest! Tell your dad that I am happy and smiling and looking forward to seeing him once again. The arrest hasn’t stopped me, it’s just relocated me. I will be back.

    You handed me a leaflet with the story “This is About You” as I was entering the Davisville subway on the way to Finch. I read and reread the truly brilliant personification of a book all the way up and think it is truly brilliant.

    Thanks Peter. I took your ‘little story’ story in the subway yesterday and it was a real pleasure to read. Nice to meet you ever so briefly :). And I love what I am reading here so far. What a wonderful, courageous, innovative, creative way to get thoughtful and thought-provoking words into the world. Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Peter!
    I’m Regis from Brazil. I had classes with you in 2009. Great time!
    Nice to know some news from you…
    Hope you’ve been all right, despite the arrest (hard to believe it happened).
    Keep writing and posting here!

    Peter – I tried doing interpretive dance while reading ‘This is About You’ to Bob (a hamster), but it’s tricky to multi-task that way!
    Here is one of my favourite haikus (written by my dad) – it’s easy to two step along…and super fun

    big and friendly animals
    but not in my car

    Hey Peter,

    Your shits good, real good. Like, a little dark, a little fibrous, and not too dense to sink to the bottom.

    Hello Peter!
    I must say, I am glad you found me, otherwise I would not have found this treasure box of yours.
    I look forward to read more of you.

    Dear Peter, the system I am currently operating has a Netgear Firewall that blocks out any post with the syllable “butt-” as part of its title! Fortunately, the entire poem, your Butterflies in Ice post, appeared in my email notification. I am totally with you that listening to music like Beethoven just freezes those wings where we need them to fly away with. The ethereal sounds leave those wings right there in our heads to life us up.

      Rose! I am glad my butterfly got caught in your net one way or the other. I chose Beethoven’s 9th, because, art is of course subjective, but if someone doesn’t like the last ten minutes of this symphony, then they are wrong. And how lucky we are that it has survived all these centuries, grown, in fact, because now I can press a button and conjure it up any time I want. The 9th is everywhere.

    Good evening,
    i like your blog. Your posts are very interesting.
    I invite you to visit my intercultural blog:
    http://parolesemplici.wordpress.com/mytinbox/
    I define this blog “In parole Semplici” as a “virtuacultural tin box” where they are guarded thoughts, memories, images, sounds, and simple stories.

    My dream is to create a intercultural blog with authors from around the world.
    Do you want to collaborate for “In parole Semplici”?
    I’ll wait your reply:

    Thanks

    You’re a keen observer of the world around you Peter. It makes you one heck of a great writer and a very funny comedian. I know you know that already, but it’s still nice to know other people agree.
