Blogging part 2

Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase” Martin Luther King

I have been pondering the next step. One thing that is looming up ahead is my first summer without commitments. I am fortunate to have been able to spend every summer for the last 22 years enjoying time with my children. Without question, it has been amazing.

So, I looked at a wide range of possibilities and I have settled on, well, not making any commitments. Breathing in the space.

That being said, I want to pursue some things that I love. I want to do a photography project on street art. And photograph all my hubby’s design projects. And buy a hammock and read. A lot.

And I’ve also decided to have a second blog. Just for writing. A bit. Or a lot. Whatever strikes me.

So, here is the link to the new blog, If you would not be forgotten.

I chose the name from a quote by Benjamin Franklin: If you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead, either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.

Now that sounds like a summer plan!

Doors Open Toronto

For 11 years, Doors Open Toronto has offered people the opportunity to explore buildings, some not normally open to the public. There are 150 buildings open this year; we were only able to hit a few and all well worth the adventure.

A long list of buildings are open tomorrow as well – check it out: Doors Open Toronto

Here’s my favourite shot of the day:

If only, if only

“If only, if only,” the woodpecker sighs, “The bark on the trees was as soft as the sky” – Louis Sachar

This woodpecker came by our school today and hung out for several hours. Science in the courtyard!
