I want to write about today (the day before yesterday) before I forget about today (the day before yesterday). Today I went to Laughter Yoga for the first time in a few weeks. If you don’t know what Laughter Yoga is then a) you are missing out b) you should visit laughteryoga.ca and c) if you wait a while i’ll do a post with a more in depth explanation. Anyway it was such an interesting day. I was reading on the skytrain when this older alternative guy came up to me and asked if he could borrow a pen, promising not to steal it. He said he had an idea and had to put it on paper. I assumed he was writing a poem or a note or something like that. I lent him a black one and some minutes later he returned with my pen and showed me an awesome drawing on a piece of cardboard. I wish I could have snapped a photo but he had to get off and it all happened rather quickly.
The weather was lovely and when I got to Commercial Drive there were so many funky people around. It was like everyone came out of the woodwork. I was happy to be a part of such a broad and eclectic piece of counter-culture. On the way to LY I encountered so much cool found text… for example…
“If the world is gonna end I wanna live my life…”
– random passerby
The laughter session itself was really fun and I enjoyed a really nice smoothie after. Then we heard music and this happened….
Only on the drive : P
After that some helpful friends showed me where to get a non-leaky top for my water bottle (sidenote: for my mom’s bday I got us these pricy kleen kanteen stainless steel waterbottles, however I picked the sport top cap option, not realizing it wasn’t meant to keep fluids inside haha).I accomplished a seven month goal! Woo! Then I had to walk to Hastings to take a bus to rehearsal. There was a bus sitting at the stop with the emergency lights on and a large number of displaced people milling about. Luckily another bus came within a few minutes and most of the people evaporated. I guess “This too shall pass” : )
