The sun . When I set out today for my perio cleaning it was brilliant, warm, and so pretty with all the many kinds of trees in bloom. Every shade of green, magnolia in full bloom, and even the prospect of a root planing did not bring me down. Though many would dispute it, bus service to the subway system was on time and No complaints from me.
Our city is big , grey, overbuilt and seemingly always under construction. This provincial prime minister and his crew have handed down far too many laws ... suddenly and so many affecting this urban mecca of Ontario. The latest is a radical change to the heritage status for buildings, I see as a bid to tear down older buildings to build mega high rises in their stead.
Already downtown is overbuilt with city canyons where the wind howls . This is a mistake, and this place is showing signs of stress. On us, the citizens, on us when we drive the clogged streets, on the air, on the landscape and very last, the aesthetics
I don’t like it. At all.
So, I took transit today to my dental appointment because parking could cost between 15 and 30 dollars if I have lunch or want to do a bit of shopping. This way I am free.
I am finished my sushi lunch special ( brown rice avo and salmon, and will head out now - walking as far as I can.
Maybe I can get a photo of trees in bloom. Then it’s home to clear up for. a busy two days, medical appointments for each of us for Thursday and Friday. With any luck I will get to the gym Friday after I get my knee checked and then it’s a long weekend. Maybe walks, maybe friends for Saturday evening, and maybe more sun. It’s overdue.
I hope spring has landed your way and that the flooded areas can dry out.
Off to walk the city.
