A weekend in Toronto was just the thing to prepare me to come here & dig in - especially Pedestrian Sunday in Kensington Market, just the day before I left. What an explosion of culture that area is - the city celebrating itself in a hundred different ways, from the Capoeira players to the 40-piece Samba band to the Chinese dragon dancers to the many different musicians, spoken word artists, MCs & DJs that lined the streets of the Market. Not to mention all the yummy food!
So now it's time to get started. It feels very much like starting a new job, which is great, because that is exactly what I'm doing! I've been an artist my whole life, but only recently am I viewing it with the real dedication and drive that a career warrants. Since I started looking at it more professionally though, things having been going better than I ever imagined. Such is life - energy and commitment.
