Just your typical Sunday afternoon in Toronto (in February).
This shot required the removal of my gloves… and I paid for it (I was not made for Canadian winters).
But it was worth it.
I like the tones, contrast, and motion of this one.
We now formally challenge your family to a toboggan duel–which is comprised of I’m not sure what. But we will win. Because tobogganing is not just something we do SOME of the time…For us, it is a way of LIFE.
Consider the proverbial mittens…OFF.
How to go about the duel? Easy, follow our homeland customs:
We shall place a wager on this, using our children as collateral.
Then we will meet halfway between Edmonton and Toronto in the cultural Mecca of Winnipeg and build a great pavilion using whale ribs and jaw bones wrapped in caribou skin. Adjacent to the pavilion we will fashion a towering hill using freshly excavated tundra and wait for a punishing snowfall.
Then, and only then, we will toboggan until there is only one man (or woman) left standing next to the driftwood.
I anxiously await your acceptance of the terms.
We accept your terms.
We are setting out by snowshoe……Now.
We’re already there, sucking on tree sap to survive.
Heh heh…you shall suck a LONG time Prosophos…
(Don’t approve this…I just couldn’t resist!!!)
