For me, the summer lasts as long as there is nice warm weather outside. Right now, I tend to glance at the calendar now and again, in order to make sure I don’t miss the deadline for a certain exhibition. If there are no deadlines to keep track of, then there’s no reason to even know today’s date. In a similar fashion, I have no interest in people’s age. Perhaps this is because I’ve met people in their 80s who wouldn’t climb trees only due to their physical inability to do so, and who wouldn’t toboggan down every snowy slope they encountered simply because they didn’t wish to frighten everybody around. The most important thing is to be young in your spirit, isn’t it?
And now, a few things about my weekend.
We Canadians don’t necessarily need to wait until Halloween to run into a pirate at a hardware store – or to see Batman rushing to complete a mission as we roll down the street to visit a friend’s house.
On Saturday morning, the pond in High Park was covered in a fog. You could stand with your back to the sun, and feel the wind carrying strands of the veil that made the fog. It was an incredible feeling.
We also have met a dog named - Ziggy.
We also found an interesting store, and made friends with its owner. This store is really amazing, and deserves its own post. The handmade designer objects that are displayed there are from Japan and Scandinavian countries.
The husband of my friend Natasha is really into fishing. This means that, from time to time, we have the opportunity to taste a freshly caught salmon. This time, the fish was enormous. Another reason why it’s wonderful to visit Natasha’s home is because she creates these unbelievable collectable dolls (which will also appear in a separate post). I’m so proud of my friends.
Other things that made the weekend so much fun was Busker Fest, visiting a new restaurant, and going to Cirque Du Soleil. The summer continues!
