I am hoping this works - it's kind of fun having the expectation... Off to a "Moon over Mumbai" party tonight - Bollywood theme so I will use my teal and pink satin skirt/dress as sari and load on the jewellery - Indian food - my fave!! Tomorrow off to hear the divine Whitney Barris at Gate 403, 5 - 8 p.m. There's lots of jazz around town - Nancy Walker is at Chalkers tonight, Joel Haynes at the Rex....check it out.

This is part of the interior - things have been shuffled due to the Fringe Fest taking over for a couple of weeks...no tables.
Many exciting developments to happen in this space to improve on its' already stellar reputation.
Vegetable garden with monster spaghetti squash - which he cooked and we ate with some tomatoes, feta, cheddar, butter, mint..mmm.
Sweetpeas, snapdragons, sunflowers, salpiglosis, godetia....he is a magician with plants...and the very best of friends.
Scottish group Breabach in the Backstage area, rehearsing...Looking towards downtown...
The gentleman in black is Ben Sures - whom I've written about before - enjoyed listening to his album " Field Guide to Loneliness" - it also has great cover art...which is a lost art in itself.
This lady is the ethereal, exquisite Eivor - one of my favourite people at the Fest...
Can't wait to listen to her album...

This is the wonderful Sienna Dahlen performing a set of mostly her own music at Tequila Bookworm.
Ethereal, atmospheric...more art song but beautiful nonetheless.
With her are on violin are Jaren Freeman-Fox and visiting from Lugano, Switzerland on guitar Roberto Pianca (via New York)
Seen at the scene: Chris Gale (whose bad had the next set) Ben Dietschi, Nathan Hiltz, newlyweds Sophia Perlman and Adrean Farrugia. Sophia was also at Louisa LaBarbera's fab jewellery sale/open house/shmooze on Friday...I picked up some Majorca pearl drops - simple and classic and fun turquoise and cream earrings...shaped like a tiny ship's wheel.
These beauties...which are actually a deep burgundy are from my local farmer's market..where there is a cornucopia (love that word) of produce these days....cherries, raspberries, peaches, greens, beans, and all kinds of other colourful and nutritious items - it's very easy to eat the rainbow as they say.
I love dahlias and any big showy flower: peonies, gerbera daisies, stargazer lilies...I admired many fine flowered yards on my way home yesterday between Ossington and Shaw...
For lunch? Fresh corn! I personally am enjoying the summer, not finding it cool at all...but very comfortable and just right...not too hot, not too cold...
Only 3 more sleeps til my Western journey...
