Extravagant


I am going to see Cirque du Soleil this afternoon! Alegria. Very excited. These tulips look like they could have been the inspiration for some of the costumes! I am going to bring my camera and hope I can manage to grab something but I am thinking photos are probably not allowed.

We are going for lunch first in one of the many pubs scattered through downtown Halifax. This is a great city for pub crawls of which there are many, because the downtown area is basically squeezed between the harbour and the Citadel fortress on the hill. A perfect sailor's city for hundreds of years. Get drunk and roll yourself down the hill back to your boat.

Ongoing is my "Letter Revival Festival"(until June 14) 9 days left. If you like receiving interesting mail and don't mind sending a letter ...this is for you! Click on the picture to learn more:) I would be happy if you could spread the word, you can use this wee banner

I want to go see one of their shows so bad. They are so awesome. Maybe this winter if they come back to the Chicago area! Have a great time!

Hi Shelagh! I stopped in from Artful Penpals. My gosh, your art is gorgeous! I am all about color and I think that is why I am drawn to it. Anyway I posted a link to AP today. I hope you have a fabulous turnout and am looking forward to sending my letter when I get my Penpal.

Oh my! Cirque du Soleil!!!! WOW - have a fantastic time :-) and if I had an address, I would so love to be part of the Letter Revival Festival ... I myself wrote about writing letters on my blog a few months back. Since then I've exchanged a few with friends and there is just something so truly magical about the process :-)

I have internet for a couple of days! Yay! so I'm busy catching up with people :-)
