It’s springtime! Yay!
I don’t know about you, but I am totally excited by the amazing weather we are having. Today feels a bit cold and looks a bit rainy, but, I sure hope it clears up soon! I’ve already been working and can’t believe how lucky we’ve been with regards to the weather! Yesterday was a record high for March! Way to go, team weather! 🙂
It couldn’t have come at a better time for me, either, since I recently moved. It was so wonderful to be back out at my favourite pitch, Yonge and Dundas, entertaining all of the March Breakers and Warm Weather Enjoyers. It has been such a wonderful week back at work and I am so humbled and grateful for all of the love and joy expressed by my return. Toronto, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are simply the best city in the world! Already, I’ve been getting emails and photos, and while we are a long way off from ‘Photo of the Weekend’, I do happen to have a great shot taken by George E. Papadopoulos that was sent to me a couple of days ago! Thanks, George for making the first front-page photo of 2012!
I love street performing and every year on the first day of shows, I feel as giddy as a child on the first day of school. Street performing is in my blood, kids, and the need to get out there and entertain is so great that I typically have my kit packed weeks in advance, patiently awaiting for a day warm enough to get out there. This year, however, I was completely taken by surprise by our first warm day! Goes to show that you should always be prepared!
It’s almost a pity that I am jetting off to Australia shortly to participate in the Freemantle Street Arts Festival running from April 7th-9th in Perth as I’m enjoying this weather so much here in Toronto! I will be back soon, though, and am looking forward to enjoying the Toronto crowds throughout the summer in between stops on my tour.
Well, I will keep this post short and sweet but hope that you all had a wonderful winter and are enjoying our amazing weather!
