Today we'd planned to go market shopping.  But when we showed
up at the market  the advertised market event was nowhere
to be found.

It was a freezing cold, but beautiful sunny day, so we headed out
for lunch and then a brief tour of the Art Gallery of Ontario.
That was a delightful way to spend the afternoon.  I got to see the
Tom Thomsons and look at them in a brand new way.  I knew that
he stylized his paintings, but I saw techniques I've never noticed
before and I have stared at his work dozens of times.

Top the day off with a captivating sunset, and a huge hawk circling
the hydro towers as we drove home, and it was a perfect

Have a loving-the-new-things-life-presents day.
The woman in this drawing is enjoying the delicious tea
they serve at the gallery.

Hi Flora,

Yes you would. I am hoping I inhaled the essence of what he was doing with design in
some of his pieces. Ultra cool. Yes it was a good day. Sunshine steals the show
after this grey winter.

Hi Verna,

I keep going back and looking at those rocks you've made and painted in wonder. It was a lovely day.
