I collected hand percussion instruments when my music group used to do children's concerts, and recently unearthed one of the boxes (for the 2015 Holiday Party podcast recording of The Spiel). I only have six notes on this xylophone, which sort of limits the number of songs I can play. :-)

Have posted a few of my Lindor chocolate wrapper ballerinas in my Etsy shop. This one is "Eva."
I was walking along Christie St in Toronto the other day and noticed a splotch on the sidewalk. Not exactly sure what it was: perhaps a bit of old plant? Anyway, I was fascinated by the unusual shapes and textures. I couldn't really draw on the sidewalk, so I snapped a photo instead.
I did feel a bit odd, crouching there on the sidewalk over a bit of decaying vegetation (a passerby gave me wide berth), but I knew that it was my only chance to capture that image exactly as it was.
And it was totally worth it because when I got home, there she was: an older woman pausing on HER walk to smell a flower.
