feeling solidarity with places that Russia is not getting fuel to.

power in downtown toronto was out for 24 hours in the middle of extreme cold, so it has been an adventure.

2.The laundromat owners and family eat by candlelight
3. my street, no street lights, no lights but cars.
4. my house, fire, candles, friends, small babies.

adventures with oscar

Oscar and I went to the Riverdale Farm, which is in the middle of Toronto. Inside the barns it is warm and cosy. Outside it is winter.

Oscar says the goat licked him, and that the hill he climbed was HUUUUUUUUGE.

subway story

I lost touch with Natasha, but one day I saw her on the subway car I had just got out of. She saw me, waved frantically, blew me a kiss. I went to the next station but she wasn't there, and she wasn't at my original stop. I wonder how she is. She was a good friend in some strange times.

it's a seashell, it's a wood shaving...no, it's the wood staircase that Frank built.

The staircase is cantilevered over the floor of the atrium, and rises three stories, to above the roof where it allows a great view of the city.
