Bill and I kept an eye out for critters yesterday, with the memes Camera Critters (thank you, Misty!) and Saturday's Critters (thank you, Eileen) in mind, as we went about our day.
Black Jack, our sweet (most of the time) critter says a demure "hello" first.
There was a cormorant at the top of the sculpture in False Creek,and an eagle high in the sky,
being chased by..
by a crow.
Bill spotted this mallard,
swimming steadily toward us.
A bee's sideways stare as it "swam" over the top of california lilacs made it look like a fish.
Bill and I completed newspaper crossword #5. We don't cheat, and we don't complete most of them in the time it takes to have lattés and cookies at Harrison Galleries. This one was the first since last Saturday. Each success is celebrated, albeit shyly :)
Last evening we attended an exhibition of street art at The Roundhouse. I believe this one is called "Owly" by Indigo.
I couldn't find a title for this one but I believe it is by Sherri.
We took Black Jack for a walk between events and enjoyed the Canada Geese..
in evening light and against pebbly backgrounds.
Then we returned to the exhibition where this t-shirt inspired an actual conversation with the wearer and many smiles.
I loved seeing this event and hope to return to some of my thoughts about street art, but hearing Rebelinx was a highlight last night. I first heard him practicing under the Burrard Bridge, and have known for a long time that he will make his musical mark on the world.
He plays with passion..
and his personal responses to the saxophone's voice..
left me deeply touched.
I hope you will check out the great critter links at the top of this post, but you may want to check out the one to Rebelinx as well. I thank critter lovers and art lovers and music lovers and blog lovers too. Have a peaceful and happy weekend, everybody.
