don valley and a mandala

I walked Mia's dog around the pretty neighbourhood a couple of times today.  I go over to this lookout over the Don Valley and I find this lovely astrological mandala in the circle, which I don't recall having seen before.

Spring has sprung in the valley.

Ceri and I decide to take advantage of the gorgeous day and walk up to Kensington Market and poke around there for a few hours.  If I photographed everything that caught my eye, I'd be there for a month.  Later we meet up with Carly for a bite to eat.  A really good day.

This week I'm walking to work the "no-shortcuts" way, walking up to my office east along Adelaide Street from Spadina.  It's part of the "Entertainment District" though the street with the beautiful name is rather shabby along the route I walk – it has none of the swankiness of King Street, a block south.  There are some great buildings though, and construction underway in spots, and slated to begin in others, and I expect in the next few years the area will house a lot of new glass. I'll enjoy the "shabby" bits while I can!
