today is a slow and lazy sunday. shaun is working on his guitar trying to get a certain riff just right. i think some earplugs are in order. it's not all music to my ears.
it's raining. i knew already by the colour of the day, and through the slits of grey i could see through the blinds of the bedroom but i had to come out and take a long look out the balcony window anyway. just for confirmation, you know. nothing else to look at save for the apartments across the street, a nondescript 3 story brick thing, however as nondescript goes it is a much nicer building than the one we are in.
apparently we face north, but you couldn't tell by looking. no mountains to be seen in the distance. the street slopes up sharply to the left in front of our building and only serves to disorient me. i'm really not much for views million dollar or otherwise, but i like to see something interesting. my favourite vista was the one i took in from my gloucester street toronto apartment; south facing, 6th floor. i could see everything to downtown toronto. it being one of the tallest buildings in the area. the only one that trumped me was 100 wellesley, which unfortunately, was located directly south. i used to imagine i could even get a tiny peek of lake toronto if i looked hard enough.
not now. but for the moment this will have to do. beggars can't be choosers, i suppose.in the meantime. this whole area is populated by similarly bland, youngish buildings, stitched into fabric of the senior citizen architecture of the surrounding area.
