There's something about Saturday afternoon in late July, as one begins the day, so much to explore, so many images, various worlds. Interesting posters in Mile End. Things on sale at the plaza. Have a nice day.

Van Horne near Victoria, Cote des Neiges

om ah hum

These were taken in April 2011. The furniture store moved. The store fronts are being renovated. I dug these photos up last night, when unable to sleep. The street changes from year to year. One could go back to the above locations. They won't look like in the photos.

along Cote des Neiges

Cote des Neiges near Linton
retro sci fi look

Here's Cote des Neiges, taken during autumn 2011. I enjoy the hospital complex, which begins at the level of Van Horne and extends up towards Queen Mary, one medical building after another.

Now I'm going out for coffee and to contemplate the mystery of my self. What exactly is this self all about? How did such a phenomena occur? After I'll go look at more windows. Stay tuned for more.

more windows

Jewish General Hospital
Cote des Neiges near Van Horne
One of the benefits of living in a city, such as Montreal, is the vast array of windows. Windows enthusiasts won't be disappointed in Cote des Neiges. The hospital is at the center of a mandala of windows spreading out in all directions, in buildings both sides of the street. I especially enjoy the hospital windows, the various blinds, air conditioning units during summer, plain appearance in winter, reflection of trees and sky. Stay tuned for more pictures of windows in future posts.

cleaning out the old apartment

clean up the kitchen

This pictures is from about three weeks ago, when a friend cleaned up his apartment before moving to a new apartment in another neighbourhood.  It's exhausting, so many details, so much junk collected over the years, to toss in the trash, give away or sell at a garage sale.

Hot summer days, sweat, smog, noise makes me want to relax.

Church of Coffee

Almost every morning I go out for coffee. It's fun to sit down to a cup of coffee and exchange friendly vibes with the other people who come there for coffee and something to eat. It's getting increasingly difficult to find a cheap cup of coffee. I can't afford to go to regular cafes anymore. However, the fast food joints are still affordable. This morning, I made coffee at home and drank it in the back yard.
