Polish at a Ukrainian Festival

This weekend was the Polish Festival in Roncesvalles, and while I considered going there, the oppressive heat kept us from making the trek. Instead,

Diner en Blanc

I’ve attended Diner en Blanc before, but it was fun to go again.

Street Festivals

Toronto has no shortage of street festivals. And everyone of them is a little different,

Arts in the Park

Finding things to do in Toronto is easy. Finding things for a family to do that cost nothing is not as easy.

Vintage Shopping Spree: Trinity Bellwoods Yard Sale

So it’s well established by now that I don’t do malls or shops very well at all.

Flying Solo – Whole

I have a very talented friend, well actually I have a lot of very talented friends, but this time I’m talking about one particular smart, kind woman who can also pole dance – Liona.

Pedestrian Sundays in Kensington

It happens every last Sunday of the month during the Summer:

Cherry Blossoms in High Park Picnic

Toronto’s Cherry Blossoms are at their peak right now.

Diner en Blanc: Part Deux

I promised you guys some shots.

Dance Like Everyone’s Watching, And No One Cares


There’s this thing you can do here in Toronto. It’s called dance. I know what you’re thinking, “You can dance anywhere Jo.” But this isn’t regular dance. It’s a drug free, alcohol free, no talking, no judgement kind of dance. It’s called Ecstatic Dance. And for about two hours you dance.

You move. You feel the beat. No one is there to ‘pick-up.’  You don’t have to worry about creepers. There’s no club wear, just comfy clothing you can move in. People dance in silly ways. However they want, and it’s all great. Some do contact improv.  Some, like me, just dance.  Just get out of their heads, into their bodies, and enjoy the rhythm of the music as it flows through their body. It’s like Grey’s Anatomy where they dance it out – just for two hours.

And it’s glorious.
