Today was brighter, but lately it's been pretty grungy in Montreal, as winter settles in for the long haul. Yesterday I went downtown and back on the bus and metro, and the general vibe was pretty grim. On the way home, I could see out the sidewalk-side of the bus, but the windows toward the oncoming traffic were like this:
Montrealers are notorious for wearing black and grey all winter, but these two actually had on some color. It doesn't seem to have improved their spirits, even if it helped mine!
We're still swamped with work: my excuse for being scarce around here, and the reason I've done no drawing or painting for what feels like months. Long stretches like that, where I'm mostly at the computer, make me feel like I can't see very far ahead either. On the other hand I'm very glad we have work. One big project was sent off today, and another will go tomorrow, which I hope will have the effect of a sudden clearing, and the appearance of a bright blue sky.
