nuit blanche toronto 2014

…it was a crisp autumn night for nuit blanche this past saturday… saw some really neat things + some very out there stuff…

…our adventure began around 8:30 pm at union station… from there we toured the many outdoor installations from the round house to fort york…

…we stopped by the wheat sheaf tavern for a warm up and then joined the masses flowing along queen west around 12:30 am…

…overall a great experience!

over a month…

wow, hard to believe i’ve had a concussion for over a month now… haven’t been able to do much… no reading, tv, work, art, driving, and minimal computer time… must say that audio books have been keeping me sane… feeling a bit better each week… didn’t have a headache yesterday… definite progress!

i’ve had much time to think and the quote below struck a chord… i have been forced to step back and let things flow… and everything has worked out okay… time to create more art and less thinking… a new journey begins…

If you allow yourself to be the person that you are, then everything will come into rhythm. If you live the life you love, you will receive shelter and blessings. Sometimes the great famine of blessing in and around us derives from the fact that we are not living the life we love, rather we are living the life that is expected of us. We have fallen out of rhythm with the secret signature and light of our own nature.

…the sunshine infused me with a burst of energy today… enough to make a funky candle holder from a chunk of our christmas tree that was still hanging around…  feels soooo good to work with my hands again… the slow thaw of spring is definitely helping my inner energy begin to flow… hibernation is over… hurray!
