People often ask me, ‘Do you miss … Canada, Toronto… ‘
The simple answer isn’t simple at all. Mostly: No. Yes. Mostly, No.
I just spent 2.5 hours without power.Yesterday, 5 hours. It’s a ‘thing’. I moved here last September, experiences a few power outages, but nothing serious. Of course, by serious, I mean under six hours.
Since March First, 25 times, including the twice today. It’s hot. I’d open wine. It’s difficult but not a chore at all.
Yes, I miss my favourite Tibetan Restaurant in Parkdale. I miss and don’t miss the TTC.
I exist here.
It’s noisy, dirty, the power goes out, a lot, I don’t know the language.
All of those things appeal to me.
