Just a collection of thoughts while we are living in Canada for a year - and a way to stay on the radar screens of our friends and loved ones back home (and elsewhere).

Living Arts Centre . . . Just Around the Corner!
OK, just so I don't give everyone the impression that it's all hardship and struggle here with that last post about registering our car, I figured I should mention this really cool Living Arts Centre that's walking distance from our house in Mississauga. Emily and I were just there to pick up her tickets from the box office for the Drama class she'll be attending for the next 9 or so Saturday afternoons. It's colossal and full of neat corporate-sponsored auditoriums, studios, etc. While exploring the place, Emily and I stumbled upon a free interactive art show and had a lot of fun investigating various pieces that we could touch, wonder about, and even contribute to. iPhone newbie that I am, it didn't occur to me to take pictures until just now as I type this, so I've popped in an image I found of the centre online - or part of it. It is huge, I tell you! (. . . 'scuse me. A piece of straw fell out of the corner of my mouth just then.)
Anyhoo, after ooohing and ahhhing over all the art glass and pottery, Emily is expressing a strong desire to attend the pottery camp for kids that they offer there. Of course, we'll look into it. Wish they had a bulk buying scheme for the classes.
