An April Day View From My Second-Floor Balcony

Toronto Weather Outlook:

It's another grey day here in Toronto, which is still following the 80-20 rule, where 80% of the days have been cloudy. The skies are leaden, as the photos from my second-floor balcony depict with clarity. I feel as I am part of an Ibsen play, feeling a sense of foreboding. Grey skies speak of restrictions, in that it prevents the sun from entering. The sun speaks of freedom. I guess that's enough symbolism for today.

  1. In New York City, between this morning and this afternoon, some of our vegetable friends have decided to spring into action. More buds have appeared on branches; more leaves have begun to open; some flowers are already in bloom.
    We have marched into April. Soon we will spring into summer, after which we will fall into winter.

    1. It sounds magnificient, a melodious tune full of movement, and of stimulating sounds of symphony.
