a thousand square feet of frozen river

A peaceful pic for a new year. Don't expect much in this world to improve, but I'm curious to see, you know, how bad it's going to get.

Set up an "animated slideshow" today -- a kind of low-tech sequence of stills that capture a little event. This is the third I've put up on flickr, and the first more-or-less documentary style piece.

New year's was good. Bea and I partied at Theatre Passe Muraille, then started for home around 2am. We were going to take the streetcar, because it's usually a bit of a party on wheels after midnight Jan.1.... but we didn't want to wait in the cold, so we started walking east on Queen from Bathurst. It was a carnival on the street. Drunks cavorting, a young Serbian womnan weeping loudly into her cellphone, lots of stoopidlee drunk men being assholes to their girlfriends as said girlfriends tried to keep them from being run over in traffic or freezing to the concrete where they decided to sit (on the well-argued principle that "you're not the boss of me")... One guy seemed to be sleeping where he stood until his partner would grab him by the arm to get him to a cab; then he'd get surly and walk on. She finally got a cab (an olympic feat on that night!)-- but the cabbie refused to admit the drunk guy.

Anyway, we were 85% of the way home by the time a streetcar caught up to us, so we thought we might as well finish the journey on foot. Gorgeous, surreal night. I wished I had my camera with me, but then again, some things should just be experienced directly.
