back to basics
Just couldn't let that world view have precedence for me. i must speak of important things. Like earth day which was a little over a week ago (i've had a lousy cold for the past week, so haven't updated).
Earth Day, 2011: I grabbed my coat, got my hat, and left my worries on my doorstep, then directed my feet to the sunny side of bayview avenue and the toronto brick works, where a celebration of the earth was in progress. i ran off in such haste that i didn't even take my moneybag, but i was rich as rockefeller, right? except that when i got to the parking machine, it wouldn't take all that gold dust at my feet.
So there I was, swearing out loud, when a lovely, generous and kind man overheard me and offered to pay for my car to wait for me (it was too far to walk or bike). I was most grateful and have a photo of this anonymous donor for all the world to see. Thank you, good person.
And some other random photos from that day, including the 'north slope',its importance on a public board, and the brick machine from the original brickworks of the city.
then a photo of the cake that myself and friends ate that night in celebration of a birthday on earthday. If you love the earth, listen to my song "Bloomin' Blues" on youtube.
