Annie Wong, poet, artist and friend, was recently selected to participate in the inaugural ‘Art of the Danforth’ project here in Toronto, an initiative designed to bring works of art to a public space, specifically along the Danforth between Greenwood and Woodbine.
Annie’s contribution was a sort of large scale expansion of something she’s already beeen doing off and on for awhile now: leaving love notes for strangers. Though instead of leaving them in subway stations, she scattered them along 15 city blocks. So I went out yesterday to try and find some of the few people hadn’t stolen yet.
Pleased with the way it turned out, if not with the quality after compression. But thinking of that too much just makes me want things like video cameras, and that’s the last thing I need to be thinking about.
Friends, this is my 50th entry in this new little endeavour! Can you believe it? I know I can. Let’s see if we can’t get you some finished fiction before the next 50, shall we?
