Actually the Harbourfront Centre is not that lonely. Lonelier than summer, yes, but there is a busy skating rink back there by the lake, and the Centre has arts programs running all the time. But I do get as much pleasure walking down there in the quiet, cold winter (okay, it's not that cold this winter) as I do in the bustling, touristy summer.
It's bloody cold today, but I made myself get out for a walk. I'm glad I did because the colour of the sky was the most gorgeous gradation of blues: from asure to cobalt to indigo to navy to midnight. And probably a whole lot of others I couldn't define. And it's not even supper time yet.
