|Street View of The Naam|
I just spent some time getting ready for an art show that I hung yesterday at The Naam, one of my favourite restaurants and a Vancouver institution in the vegetarian world. It's been around since the '60's and if you squint just right as you sit at your table there, you might catch a hint of patchouli and know that the '60's are still alive and well .

I could say I've been busy but that would go against something deep inside me. I remember the '90's when "busy" was the answer that everyone wore like a badge. I always wondered what it was all about. What was the deeper meaning of busy? I had some theories but never cracked the busy code completely. I never felt busy even in the '90's. I have some sort of internal compass that completely lacks the pointer toward busy. Recently I discovered this wonderful poem about Busy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. I hope you're not to busy to read it!

I will pop in some pics from my show. And if you're in the Vancouver area, pop in and have a look and don't forget to have the sesame fries and miso gravy, maybe a piece of Shakti cake with hemp seed whipped cream. Happy summer days to you! May you lie on the grass and watch the stars. May you taste the rich tang of a summer tomato warm off the vine. May summer live on in your heart, long after it's warm, lazy rays have made way for the richness of autumn.
