recent events have seen me making increased visits to my amazing mechanic, eric (who will have his own post here soon for being, truly, a prince among men). he is located up at st. clair and vaughan, an area i don't otherwise find myself in very much. these visits keep reminding me of one of toronto's most outstanding examples of vernacular/visionary/self-taught art, dutch dreams. an ice cream and candy shop, the flat iron-type building is festooned with all manner of cow, dairy and dutch themed hand painting and sculpture. my documentation here is pretty rushed and perfunctory, but i was having a rushed and perfunctory day. i had to pick up boris for the last time and was feeling distressed. i will have to go back another time (eric and i still have business so i am sure i will be there again sooner rather than later) and take some more detailed shots. at the very least, the sidewalk waffle cone making set-up made the entire intersection smell like a cloud of vanilla and sugar; this did a lot to soften my anxious mood.
anyone want an ice cream date in may?
