Jack’s Walk

Today you get voyager’s walk without Jack. I was in Toronto over the weekend to visit a friend so I thought I’d share some shots of Front Street. Everywhere you look the city is gearing up for all that mindless and debt-inducing Christmas shopping and this year it looks like Union Station is going all out Lego. So far they’ve placed 3 giant Legos in the square along with a totally Lego fireplace complete with Lego stockings hung with care. The large white board is also going to be all Lego and it has mind-numbingly small numbers. Lots of numbers, each one waiting for an individual normal size Lego block. It must take a crew of several people days to put it all together. I’ll ask my friend to send me photos of the finished project and I promise to share.

    The way that tall modern building you see looking east mirrors the shape of the statue in the middle of the Monument to Multiculturalism is lovely.

    A beautiful city… I like the statue way better than I like the Legos, though. Not much of a Lego fan, although I admit it would have been fun to see Jack lifting his leg on them.
