Tonight was this year’s first real snow in Toronto.
I promised myself I’d stay home tonight, but the intent was to practice some level of solitude, not necessarily to be a hermit. So I believe the walk around my neighborhood was just what I needed.
As is probably pretty clear, these were all taken on a camera phone (Nexus Galaxy), so they’re capturing the nuance more than what I could actually see.
For you to see it as I did (and I do recommend it), you’ll have to go on your own evening wanderings…
Sometimes you have to be the person to make the first footprints,
so that you can get to the cutest things,
the prettiest shadows,
the simplest new graffiti,
the ladies of the alley,
the relevant words,
the all-night galleries and disco balls,
so that when you get home,
you can remember your short, but necessary, excursion into the ‘blizzard’ in any way you choose.
