Nothing Has Changed

The gentleman sat back in the bus seat in front of me, put up his feet and took out his phone. He was going through his contacts, making the requisite round of New Year’s calls. I could tell this one was a message he was leaving on someone’s voice mail.

“Hi, happy New Year. Everything is the same as before. Nothing has changed. OK, good-bye.”

And so it is.

I’ve never been one to make resolutions, but today I went to the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts for a culture injection and realized that is something I’d like to do more of this year: feed my soul through art. I’d also like to eat more fruits and vegetables – to that end I stumbled on a new recipe compendium with an amazing collection of salads. Both happen to be WordPress sites. Coincidence? I’ll let you decide. Happy 2015.

London Street Art

On a recent trip to London, I went on a street-art tour with guide Karim Samuels. Having watched Banksy’s controversial Exit Through the Gift Shop it was really cool to see works by some of the artists in the documentary.
