the power of the image

I have decided to post some pictures. For my birthday I got over 600 digital photos printed...my favourites from over the course of the past year. I'm sure many of them will make their way onto here eventually. For now--and as much for my viewing pleasure as yours--I'll put up some that evoke just the right memories for this mood. I figure that it might be nice to have them up here in cyberspace, for easy access when i'm across the ocean from loved ones. sooo:

My lovely female housemates, all of whom I miss dearly. Right now...(from left) Maia is working at a daycamp in Etobicoke, Gill is working as a research assistant in Vancouver, Kristina just got back from a whirlwind trip to Hungary and is relaxing in her European-esque castle in Toronto, while Jennie is working at a river rafting company in Wales before doing a 37-day tour of Europe with her sister.

This is the Danforth Music Hall, where Brian & I saw The Arcade Fire show in April. Go here to see great pics of the performance and a little writeup on the show. Let me mention that the music hall was the absolute ideal venue for the show. We arrived a little late, expecting to squeeze our way into a general admission,standing room only setting. When we arrived, however. The audience was seated in the old theatre...everyone was silent or whispering excitedly to their companions and the room was illuminated only by an overhead projector on the stage and some vintage chandeliers above us. It smelled like popcorn and springtime. What a cool and ethereal experience!
