Today in front of Dollorama on Rideau Street. I told Chuck I loved his hat and he said - " Everybody loves my hat. I got it at Sally Ann on Montreal Rd and only paid $8.00 for it." He shook my hand and started pulling me in for a hug and I said - "sorry Chuck I don't hug"

This is Leo. Ran into him at the Mackemzie King Bridge selling his tiny sculptures and jewelry. He says to me that - when he was well in the head he walked from Manitoba to Ottawa, it took him 3 years. Now, he says he's not well in the head because of problems with the government and politics.

On April 25, the 2018 graduates from the University of Ottawa’s Bachelor of Fine Arts program will open a five-day exhibition of their artistic works. VOIX is a student curated and organized exhibition showcasing the work of twenty-eight emerging artists, who will transform the Department of Visual Arts’ building into an exhibition space.
With the theme of VOIX (translated to "voice" from french), each artist is presenting their work illustrating their voice through a visual representation. Each artist’s voice has been developed during the course of the program, and refined over this final year to create the focused works presented this April. Our exhibition will include a variety of mediums including painting, photography, media, drawing, and sculpture.

I ran into Chris Tyrell from HOAX COUTURE on Queen West last week. Chris goes way back to the intoxicating disco nights at Tobascos in Hull Quebec in the 80's. Chris Tyrell and Jim Searle were already at the beginning stages of cobbling HOAX together. "HOAX is consistently voted Best in Toronto as fashion designers, tailors and dressmakers."
Photos below are from their Spring Collection Fashion Show at the Cameron House on Queen West in 1992. I took these photos using a mini Pentax camera with 110film - blew heat on the back of the camera to distort the colors - these images are un-retouched, no photoshop straight out of the camera.

Left Ottawa for Montreal to experience LUMIERE and NUIIT BLANCHE Saturday a couple day ago and to shoot some image/sound for my drama-documentary BEAUTIFUL BACHELORS.
Came up with a new inclusion to make B.B. slide from a pure Doc. into a dramatic doc with a story line. So HELENE is now a character looking for a 'new life' with some interesting bachelors like she lived before her life changed into seclusion and 'aloneness'
Her first encounter as she travels Canada is with ZOLTAR a gypsey fortune teller and from there she get clues on her life and how to aquire what she wants. ZOLTAR is a fortune telling machine that gives fortunes for money.
So there we are in Montreal and i'm shooting a scene using the background of 'the village' and a large display of Quebec artists mounted in the snow on large blocks of white walls. HELENE talks about her life with Jano both living to the fullest having a great time the years they spent together.
The foootage is good and so we're returning to the van and i'm shooting some cover shots when i hear HELENE yelling after me - there she was calling out, 'It's JANO'
So hugs and excited words and we can hardly believe that after 25 years we found each other again at the exact time i'm shooting a scene where HELENE is talking about her wonderful life living with him in Toronto.
Since when friends meet after decades apart usually the connetion is immediate like no time has past and what amazes me is that JANO recognized us walking on the street like it was yesterday.
He tells us we haven't changed and i can hardly beiieve is since i've been going thru a decade of Cancer treaments with 4 major surgeries, radiaitons, etc .... but he did recognize us immediately.
So it seems that somehow that movemenet of 'getting out there' created a miracle for us and for the movie - we now have a cetral character for the 'new' dramatized story version of BEAUTIFUL BACHELORS - now that's what i call a MONTREAL MIRACLE and certain put a LUMIERE on my life.
All's always well when miracles happen, eh Canada?
