day. My friend Suzanne treated me to the opera Aida --
wonderful because Verdi is one of my favorites. The two
of us had colds and tried not to cough, or rattle cough
candies until the audience was yelling bravo after a
rousing chorus, and there were many impressive chorus
pieces in this production.

Then I went to see a friend's house. She has recently
moved, and though she's inherited paintings from some
true Canadian greats, she would like to buy art from me
too. Wow. I reeled in my cold as much as possible.
But now the day is over, and I have no art production to
show you. It's cold tonight. I wore one of my winter coats
out to the opera and needed it when I was coming home.
Ach aye as we say in Scotland, I thought I'd give myself
and you a wee break. Here's a view of my favorite beach
in the world, the beach we visit every day in Nova Scotia.
And that's my friend Diane's dog Kujo, who I love almost
as much as Zoey and who Zoey loves too. She hasn't seen
him for two years now, and she still perks up at his name.
Have a dreaming-of-summer-and-a-walk-on-the-beach day.
