The Annex, Toronto

Chris from Hamilton gave me a call with a surprise. “Are you free on Tuesday coming up?”

“I can be. Why?”

“Mahabharata, the live drama, is showing at Shaw Theatre in Niagara-on-the-Lake for several days in two parts, ’Karma’ and ‘Dharma’.”

I told Chris that I’m game, so we are set to go to the theatre on Tuesday. Such performances come rarely.

Shortly after the news of the coming drama, I left for Queen’s Park for the weekly kirtan. Gabriel brough his guitar, so a group of us sat at the monument to chant in a hootenanny style. It was indeed, blissful. This was followed by my walk with Ruslan whom I communicate with through his phone which translates Russian to English and vice-versa. Ruslan goes to school to study English.

It was an interesting stroll. We met an impersonator of Spiderman. It's not my first time to meet this young guy in the full iconic blue and red. The most important feature of the walk was hearing Ruslan through translation express that he wanted to learn English fluently in order to teach in the world's most common language.

This is commendable.

My final task for today was preparing for Saturday’s Kirtan Standards Workshop, which, by the way, is always open for all. Attendees need to register.
