I visited Gerri Ann's studio today and helped plan some time laps of her painting. William worked in his studio, planning his game.

Drawing straws

 We drew straws after supper and I lost, even though mine has a cinnamon bun attached.

Gallery day

Three gallery openings today; Dunlop (with a talk by David Garneau), MacKenzie (Luther Konadu), and Neutral Ground (Chukwudubem Ukaigwe)). We arrived at Neutral Ground five minutes before it was closing and as William was writing down some notes, he was approached by the artist and they started talking. William is supposed to write short things about art and culture events he attends this term. We ended up staying 45 minutes.

Game discussion

 William is trying to figure out a new game to create as part of his school art project. Allan came over and we tested and discussed a storytelling game called "Shadow World" and talked about where it works and doesn't work. 
Afterwards we went to Mooky's fiftieth birthday party. Wonderful time. William made a card depicting a chicken on a tight rope crossing a blaze of candles on a cake.

Dad on his feet

Visited dad. He's had some walking trouble this week but today he was not only walking but he was obsessively moving chairs around to get them away from the table for some reason.

potential new filmpool

Marian has found a very workable and versatile space to possibly be a new arts hub downtown. I was there today to see it for the first time as a member of a Filmpool committee. I'm excited about this prospect.
