  1. Sunday Morning on Bay Street

    by , 05-31-2010 at 05:35 PM (The (not so) Inner Whinings of an Impatient Rambler)
    At 8:30 this morning, I step out of the sliding doors of the Marriott Hotel on Bay Street, my resting place after an evening of Bachelorette foolishness in honour of my brother's fiancé. The sun is sparkling, the air is warm and dewy, and the Toronto streets are oddly quiet. Setting off south towards Union Station to catch my bus home, this is my first quiet moment with the city. Ever.

    It feels small today, home-y, perhaps like an amusement park feels to a ride operator before opening. ...
  2. waiting for tomorrow

    not that I want the weekend to be over I just will find out tomorrow if the classes I want to take for the summer semester will be taught. I started reading Lord of the Rings for the second time so I will be up to speed when the class starts, I will be really disappointed if they cancel the classes. It's kinda funny reading these books again, it's been almost 10 years and I find myself reading a 'new' story, there is a big difference in reading a book at 14 than 24, I feel the same way as I did ...

  5. I have gone

    I have gone off the deep end,
    for I swore you were there and I saw you
    for a moment but were gone.
    You walk with grace,
    You possess what no one may,
    In your hands, like a whip
    rests all eternity.
    You come and go,
    and brighten with your passing
    as the day shines brighter after you,
    and every page is tossed away
    like so many lives forgotten.

    the wordless equanimity.
