Distractions, reflections

David Ing, at large … Sometimes, my mind wanders

Greg and I spent most of the Saturday morning writing. As a reward for this effort, we scheduled a relaxing lunch in the Art and Design District around lower Ossington. Diana came home after some errands, and we found that Indira and Sonja had already camped out at Indo-Chyna. They had arrived a bit early, and walked around to various restaurants, chatting to the owners who had not opened the venue many months before.

Indo-Chyna

The restaurant served a mix of Vietnamese and Thai dishes — some that we had never had before. After lunch, we dropped Sonja (and her bicycle) at her apartment, and then returned to the neighbourhood. While Indira and Greg went shopping for lingerie, Diana and I went to the Edward Day Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art.

MoCCA

The show that was running was LoVe/HaTe, with pieces such as this sculpture by Mike Murphy.

I’m getting tired of working on weekends … so brief respites like this help to re-energize me.
