Excursions

imageTrying not to acquire things and am trying to spend my energy on having experiences instead. I consulted my todo lists and one of my new year’s resolutions was to getting an Art Gallery of Ontaro membership. Also I wanted to see the Lawren Harris exhibition at the AGO. Probably wasn’t good to go on the second last day.

imageI ran into so many friends there. Plus it’s a trip to see a space imbued with so many memories altered by neglect but also art.

imageAnd on Friday I went to see Lauryn Hill at Massey Hall. It was weird and amazing and worthy of of a much longer post but right now I am feeling as decrepit as the peeling paint in Massey Hall’s stairwell (pictured above). To be continued…
