Shannon and I have another matched set of pictures! What a joy to go together to see Being Elmo at what used to be the Bloor Cinema and has now transformed into a gorgeously renovated theatre for the Hot Docs Festival. The movie got right inside my heart. It was fascinating many levels, including creatively. I was so moved by the generosity of the people in this film, by the purity of heart and expression, by the commitment to craft. It really inspired me and in many ways brought me back home. A powerful experience.
Time to hit the theatre and lucky me got to go with Jamie to see Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey. Fantastic film, full of the awesome energy of puppets, muppets and a lovely, gentle modelling of the power of mentoring. Also first time at The Bloor since it was renovated and wow, it's pretty freaking beautiful.
We had a freakishly warm day yesterday, finally getting that Ontario weather you've been getting! I had been inside all day so Reg came home and dragged my butt outside. I read cookbooks on the deck while he removed all the old plants in front of the deck so we can finally paint it this week while we have the opportunity. It was also sad, I removed the robin's nest under the deck. It felt like the right thing to do. Time for the robin and I to start thinking about new homes.
