Tom Thomson by Ross King

I'm unsure where I have been living for the past 5 years - maybe living under a mushroom.  But, my door to life swung recently swung open when I discovered the world of 'The Walrus'. I admit that I was pleasantly surprised. 

I discovered, in 'The Walrus',  a premier Canadian magazine which features articles on the cultural identity of Canada.  'The Portrait, will  have more to say about this magazine in the  near future, but for the meantime, if you click on the link below, you will hear a fascinating audio report, from an article on Tom Thomson, published in the November, 2010 issue and written by Ross King.
