It’s been a while since I’ve been able to enjoy some real live art, so that’s why I’m looking forward to experiencing Mary’s new work this coming Sunday, November 25 from 11 a.m to 6 p.m. The show is at 5 Lyonsgate Drive in Toronto (5 streets north of Wilson, east of Bathurst Street). Mary will be featuring paintings, collages and prints along with encaustic art and watercolors by her friend Emily Mandy. I know this is going to inspire me to get my act together art-wise—and probably in other ways too.

When he returned to Canada, Dad became a Professional Engineer and gained an MBA from the University of Toronto. After he retired, he returned to school and graduated with a BA from Glendon College at the age of 77—and he was still teaching Sunday school into his eighties. Now that Dad is gone, I’m the oldest member of the family—all 21 of us—and I intend to follow his shining example and enjoy my life to the fullest.
