A merry moving day

My older son moved into a new apartment today,
and asked for sandwiches for the move from
La Rosa in Kensington Market.  I hadn't been
there for a few months, and started this
little portrait of Lisa the last time I visited.

She wasn't there today, but we saw Armando
who bought his portrait in the winter,
and he is going to tell his friend that
her portrait is done.

Tonight we went to a very cheery dinner
party and discussed and argued about
everything from politics to religions to
men and woman -- to you name it, and
laughed as we ate a glorious meal.
Superb.  It was so heartwarming to see
friends we hadn't seen for a while.  The best.

So here's the finished product.

Have a seeing-things-through day.
