Well, it's early in the morning on day 3 of my new life in the "big city". So far, I have to say, I've been nothing but impressed. We have a nice little apartment near pretty much everything and Montrealers have been nothing but warm and friendly. My limited French, as it turns out, isn't nearly as limited as I thought, which has been an unexpected surprise and everyone I've encountered is more than happy (and patient) to let me practice on them. And don't even get me started on the food..... YUM!
Often, it's hard to leave familiar faces and places for parts unknown, but it's also necessary. Sometimes, a change is the best thing for an artist and a person. It gets the blood flowing again, wakes you up, challenges you and causes you to grow. My mind is once again bursting with ideas and inspiration, so stay tuned.....
