Like the colour when the spring is born.

Yesterday I was at the Charlotte Street Art Centre to celebrate a milestone birthday for a dear and inspiring friend. This is one of my favourite spaces in Fredericton; a great mix of people of all ages in a beautiful space that's alive with music, dance and visual arts. Every time I'm there I'm reminded of how many hidden gems there are in our town.
Several years ago a friend and I had tossed around the idea of putting together a book of our favourite, lesser-known spots in Fredericton. The book idea went by the wayside but this blog seems like an ideal spot to resurrect the idea and celebrate our little corner of the world.
I'm looking forward to rediscovering some favourite haunts and hopefully uncovering some new ones!
For now I am off to quench my new chai latte addiction before my mom and I take Henry for a walk in Wilmot Park.

Mowed the lawn.
Finished War and Peace - this translation came out a couple of years ago and it's absolutely stunning. *
And made this amazing Thai Green Curry with Seafood - Bon Appetit recipes never disappoint.
So now Henry and I settle in for the last few hours of the weekend. Le Sigh...
* Reading W&P made me we want to revisit Woody Allen's hilarious romp Love and Death. Maybe a good way to wrap up a great weekend.

Possibly nothing. I guess we'll see.
There's no over-arching philosophy behind this blog; no significant raison d'etre. It's just my thoughts on those people, places and things that make me feel "alive, and very much so."*
* That's a quote from Tolstoy. See Denis' theory...
