The Light On The Drive

If you haven't spent time on "The Drive" you definitely should. One of my favourite pastimes has become sitting in a coffee shop, bar, restaurant, or even just walking down the street and people watching. It's a continuous blend of different people from, the regular next door, to the hippy, to the biker, bohemian, or just plain bizarre. I'm not sure what this means but I have never felt out of place. Some day I would like to live there but until then I'll be an East Van Wannabe.

Here was a photo opportunity not to be missed. 

The other night while with my friend Anna she yelled "Oh look a snake!" and ran outside.  I'm not sure what kind this snake was but as you can see it was large. She quickly charmed the fellow with it into letting her hold it and we got a few photos. 
 Anna sings with Las Divas. They play in and around Vancouver often on Commercial Drive. Like their Facebook page and if you get an opportunity go to one of their shows. No bias here when I say they're great. Well maybe a little but go see them and you will know why.

The Look

Sitting, listening to some friends play music. I was next to Veronica when she turned and looked at me......

Mirrored Light

Last night I got to go see some friends do a performance "Caught Up in the Keeping" as graduates of the Mirror Dance Program. It was my introduction to contemporary dance and I found it quite fascinating. I haven't found the words yet about exactly what I was getting from it but it was a constant visual delight. Here is Joanna who was one of the performers along with Kendra and JoLeah.

Musical Light

I love going and listening to the local musicians play. I really admire the skill and dedication that goes into their craft. I never truly appreciated it until I started trying to play guitar. I'll keep trying even though there will be a huge leap to where I could play with any kind of confidence. In the meantime I will try to be the visual to their audial.

Safe Light

I always look forward to my Sunday evenings at the Libra Room. I've been going for well over a year now to watch and listen to my friend Jesse play. I mostly go by myself but often end up sitting with friends I've made there. It has become a small but important part of my life. If you ever drop in on Sunday you will likely find me at the high table right in front of the stage. Join me if you like.

Light in the Wind

Looks like it was an epic day for low altitude flying in English Bay.
