I saw this optimistic sign while out for a run just two days ago in east Toronto. How quickly things have changed. If you are facing harsh storms today, I hope you are safe and warm – and have dodged the worst of it.
Hang in there – a Happy Spring is just around the corner.
Spring is going to win this battle!
With Earth Day this weekend, I’m flashing back to a great environmental initiative from earlier this year called Picture 2050.
Picture 2050 was a photo contest and exhibit aimed at increasing action on, and funding for, Toronto’s Climate Plan. It was sponsored by Toronto Climate Action Network, The Atmospheric Fund, and Transform TO. It also involved a photo walk with the very talented Dave Coulson.
Meet Joe. Joe Terrone of Dynevor Furniture.
I met Joe while doing a photo walk of Eglinton Avenue West last year. Dynevor Furniture has been open for 75 years and Joe has been running it for the past 50 of them.
I love meeting real people who have helped build a neighbourhood and our city.
Joe is definitely one of them.
Be sure to visit Eglinton Ave W these days. The area is struggling under the aggressive construction work for the Crosstown LRT. Small businesses need our support in order to survive.
