Pole
Originally uploaded by Kwai Chang Caine
This pole is on the corner of the street, a block from my street, across the road from the school my kids go to. Those are all staples, from fly posters across the ages (well, the ages of modern Toronto, which is to say, not really that many ages).

This image makes me happy. It doesn't quite encapsulate everything I love about living here, but it captures a big chunk of it. So many people want us to do stuff, see stuff, buy stuff, find stuff. Things happen here. Hustle Bustle.

You'd think I'd be looking forward to the jazz festival, but there's so much else to distract me in the meantime.

After living on the west coast for 8 years, the rather more terse and less easily cordial manner of the folks here was a little difficult to get used to. But I'm used to it now - I figure they haven't changed, and if anything, it should have gotten worse with the weather, so the fact that I'm not really aware of people looking cross or unapproachable must mean that my brain chemistry has changed.

Good times.
