Džo Blejds, kao i sve veci broj savremenih pjesnika, ne samo da uspješno spaja autenticnu kanadsku tradiciju sa aktuelnostima sadašnjeg trenutka, nego vec duže vrijeme proširuje ogranicavajucu definiciju regionalnog tako što se otvara prema višekulturnim i medunarodnim uticajima kroz iskustva promjene mjesta i aspekta gledanja. Odnos prema mjestu kao fizickom i mentalnom lokusu ostaje intenzivan, ali pjesnicki izraz koji prati kretanja pjesnickog subjekta postaje dio fragmentarnih procesa koji obuhvacaju, izmedu ostalog, protok impresija, podataka, topografskih naziva, zabilješki s konferencija, citata, dokumenata, reklama i sjecanja. Isti kreativni procesi zaslužni su za uravnoteženu destilaciju naslijeda i empirije i u ovoj pjesnickoj zbirci.
