GABRIEL



I can fly
but I want his wings
I can
my angel


G A B R I E L
volume up


lights out ... right about now and ya
I was a great kid!














I can shine even in the darkness
but I crave the light that he brings
revel in the songs he sings

EDWARD STREET


Recovery.


What’s that?

You want me to … what?


Move?  ... but wait!  

This is where I’m supposed to be - stuck here.

So you want me to be what?  

Stuck somewhere else?


I was served an eviction notice

on November 01, 2021

In the place I moved into 18 years ago,

on April 01, 2004 in north High Park.


Ok, it’s been a shift, struggle.  Awakening … pushed
out and into this, but wait ... wow!

I just wish this had happened 10 years ago.








6 days into my new move to my hometown Woodstock from Toronto, 

this mid June 2022,

having moved to the big city at 23 in late 1979

(yes, 43 years). 


A brand new realization, revelation.


You see, here's the thing.

I’ve been living in a dark fog

twilight twirling, since 2008. 

I didn’t know that until yesterday morning;

waking up to fresh air & new birds after sleeping soundly

for the first time in years (w/o medication)

in Woodstock.


It's like waking up out on the family farm

Eastwood, 1964 (a few miles away) - summer

before chores, crickets, rooster.

Aunt Allie already up

I smell breakfast.


Good to be home.





EDWARD STREET














Clarity for the first time in a long while.

Walking out into the kitchen

then my chaotic living room

(still unpacking/boxes).


Holy shit - it's clear again.

Words can't describe it



I LOVE this place

FINDING GLORIA





ODE TO TORONTO
time to go home

and so

It is a fond farewell
to the city I moved to right out of college
when I was 21 - no clue
just a baby






Toronto was where if anything really interesting
was going to happen (in an accompanying orbit),
this is where it would be
a promise fulfilled

Toronto shaped me into who I am
1979 - 2022
43 years

I got married here, had a daughter here
I immersed myself and I loved it

time to go home and reflect
bare essentials

this video has really nothing to do w/anything
it's just the period at the end of a sentence.
