March 21, 2012


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.

Under Our Willow Tree


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.

Shannpn, I'm so glad we got to see this together. Thank you so much for suggesting we go this week!

Suzie, wow, it definitely looks like you guys are enjoying some nicer weather. Yay!

You and the robin finding a new home is a lovely way to think about it. It's time. ((hugs))

So cool you both got to see that film! I heard the guy on CBC talk about it and it sounded awesome. Would love to check out the renovated theatre when I am in town, I bet it'll be mind blowing.

Oh it's beautiful again today! Next week? Close to 0C again but I am going to enjoy it as much as I can right now. :)

Thanks Jamie, it hadn't occurred to me until I moved the next that it was true for both me and the robin. It was sort of a sign from the Universe, something I haven't had in a long time.

And so cool Suzie that it's warming up there and you got to spend some time outside! Yippee!!
