2020

In what may be the picture that best encapsulates the whole depressing year, @gregorycochrane gives us this haunting image of a dining dome floating in Lake Ontario…

Until this pandemic invaded our lives, I’d never even heard of a dining dome. Sign of the times.

Bitter winds chased this particular plastic bubble into the November cold lake, where it danced above the grey, freezing waves and promptly sank beneath them.

This nightmare we call 2020 is sinking into the past, and with a vaccine on the horizon, here’s hoping for a better, safer 2021.

I’ll be taking a break this December, hunkering down in my robe, watching Netflix inside and the snow falling outside.

Happy Holidays. Happy New Year.

See you here in 2021, same Bat Time, same Bat Channel 🙂

Sign of the Times

I came across this sculpture today and I had to smile …

I remember a time when people talked about peace as if it would really happen. When both sexes wore their hair to their shoulders, the girls stopped wearing bras, and the boys all pretended they could play guitar.

The world was going to be a better place. We would make it better.

Yeah …

Created for the Toronto Light Festival last winter by Studio Rosenblatt, Symbolic Peace is a “laser cut steel sculpture meant to signify the strength of diversity within our community”.

Maybe it’s time to bring back the 60’s  🙂
