Just arrived in Toronto; got a ride up with the friends I’m staying with. We're sitting in their back garden; little statues of gargoyles on my left, sitting amongst the ferns; a five foot statue of the Angel Gabriel on my right, beneath a Corkscrew Birch flanked by a Japanese Maple and a Russian Olive. To my south a Weeping Cyprus, a Rose of Sharon behind me by a wall covered in wild grape under a elm tree canopy. I sit and relax with good company, and get ready for tomorrow night's reading at the Free Times Café. Hope to see you there.
And thank you Tony and Dorethy for your hospitality.
