toronto to north russell

we three had a soma hot chocolate
 walking into soma is a heady experience
delicious and seductive
 soma retail store
 factory to the left
 chocolate makes it right
 a home
a business?
in a residential neighborhood.
 the north side of the great lake i grew up near
lake ontario 
who takes in what lake erie can send her
good thing i got my finger at least partially out of the iphone's way!
 and here in the north country
the land is trying on her holiday clothes
 still snow enough to ski,
 i only got in a walk
but a wonderful snowy walk indeed.
 add in some wild grapevine
and across the road there is a child living
with these dr. seuss like trees
which i just love.
welcome back to winter.

Making me homesick!

Looks like you had an amazing birthday trip. Belated birthday wishes!

You do realize I'm now going to have the 'wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald' going through my head for the rest of the day : )
