Which way are you going?
What route will you follow?
Where will it take you?

A thought du jour, my daily breath includes collected and conceived observations, questions of life, fortune cookie philosophies, reminders, messages of peace and simplicity, unsolicited advice, inspirations, quotes and words that got me thinking. They may get you thinking too . . .
The clock and the calendar move
forward incrementally, naturally
(as it should be) from a darker
winter we can’t leave behind to
something resembling spring.
In-between our seasons we take
whatever we can, where we are.
We have little choice.
A less-than-enthusiastic forecast
glares at me from a mobile device,
with greater chance of soakers
more than once or twice in the
week ahead as atmospheric rivers
come down to earth (a convenient
excuse for all it’s worth).
April showers still to come, as it
happens, as it is always done, we
keep moving forward step-by-step
mainly in spite of the weather.

Still I write.

William Kurelek The Painter
The Art Gallery of Ontario will finally reopen this week, after months of COVID closure, with a much-hyped Andy Warhol Exhibit.
While I’m excited to see, again, another curated Warhol offering, I will be just as happy to walk among the gallery’s permanent collection.
The AGO was open for much of last summer and, almost weekly, I made a point of visiting the gallery. The AGO offered a controlled environment on a timed-entry basis, where physical distancing was expected and assured.
During my visits I spent a great deal of time viewing the extensive selection of Canadian art, including the Group of Seven, William Kurelek, Emily Carr, and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
To be allowed back into the Toronto gallery after such a long absence will be like visiting old friends.
Art has a way of brightening my spirits.
I’m so looking forward to Friday.
