Luke, a South African living in Toronto, sends pictures from his great photo journal, Tripping:
“Like Tim, the Toronto water fanatics aren’t allowing less than heatwave temperatures to keep them out of the water.”
Are they all mad up there? It may explain why I like them so. I have home broadband internet access for the first time ever, which means streaming audio of the stately CBC radio, a daily fix of Canada that only rounds out Brooklyn’s charm. Though Tim is in many ways more of a New York nut than I am, he is homesick. A jobless recovery doesn’t welcome back a technology manager who most recently managed bears and wolves and campers. So he has gone back to Canada for a spring canoe trip with some other Toronto water fanatics, and to give thought to moving back to Lake Superior.
The mighty Gowanus ain’t the same without him.
