everything’s waiting for you…

May 15th, 2001

Being that I live and work lately in the ‘burbs, I was in downtown Toronto today for the first time in a few months. Lovely day, bright, sunny, 25 degrees (that’s 77 fahrenheit). Did quite a bit of walking around.

I’ve gotten used to being in the relatively unpopulated open spaces outside the downtown core, so am quite content with the solitude of walking or driving there.

Interestingly, it occurred to me that while downtown, surrounded by huge amounts of humanity and activity, my aloneness and solitude wasn’t lessened any. That’s not to say it was depressing at all, just that despite the sense that you’re in a large community, you’re all really islands of solitude milling about without mixing.

Petula Clark seemed to like it.
