Another amazing Saturday

Bikers pedal furiously to keep the great sounds coming

Once again today we went to the Brick Works market. We picked
up delicious organic vegetables and fruits, flowers, and even
a T-shirt in support of the city group working on "greening"
Toronto. The coolest thing about the experience today though,
was that there was an amazing band playing, whose amps
and electric guitars where powered by a bunch of people
biking like crazy right in front of the band. They were hooked
up to batteries and a generator, and they were helping the band
pump up the crown. People were dancing with their children, and
it was incredibly upbeat.

The band powered by bicycles

The day couldn't have been more perfect, hot and sunny with
a brilliant blue autumn sky, and that seductive feeling
that summer might never end. But it will, and although
the market is sheltered from above, I'm trying to envision how
they keep it open until December. It will be mighty frosty down
there then.

Mike Dooley says that if you want to change
your point of view -- look the other way.
This was the view of the park behind the band.
Steven saw a crane land on this pond.

Here's the other cat in the portrait commission.

Have a powering yourself up to be happy day.
