a quiet Friday
Someone described downtown Toronto as post-apocalyptic, and when I boarded the empty rush hour train from the empty platform at 5pm on Friday, that description seemed very apt. I saw more police in riot gear and heavily armed ETF officers, than other passengers. Eerie.
Just outside the G20 perimeter fence, I saw this very haunting and creative WWF protest - carvers created a life size polar bear ice sculpture which melted through the day to reveal a bronze skeleton ... "Melting Hearts and Changing Minds". A very effective way to demonstrate against global warming, huh?
With the downtown core a ghost town, there wasn't much going on at work. Nice to get out early! After supper I finished up the second sleeve of this little sweater while watching soccer. The weekend ahead looks rainy, so it looks like lots more knitting will get done.
