Pender street, Chinatown. I know, I said I’d stay close to Commercial Drive, but I chose this spot so that I could stagger out of the An-ten-nae show at the Lotus and fall right into bed. I woke up at 6:45 to the sound of buses, and a panicked sense that I’d misread the parking regs and might be towed if I went back to sleep. Grudgingly I put on my clothes and went outside to take a picture, only to learn that I didn’t have to move at all. But it worked out great: since I was already up I went for a swim, and after that to a yoga class. This day’s been so productive already! Anyway here’s today’s pic… this fearsome creature was watching over my sleep from the window of a herbalists shop.
