Work and Play

Bonjour, colleagues, friends and fellow travelers, hope you are all doing very well!

My architecture and interpreting friend took me on a tour of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), designed by Frank Gehry – what a treat! We had lunch in the gallery cafeteria and I agree: By far preferable to the rather stuffy “members lounge” – just in case you’re in luck and visit the AGO with a member, like I did 🙂

Below is a shot of the AGO / stairs from the outside. I didn’t entirely understand the blue cube

looking at it up close, but from my photos now, I think I do…

You just have to love the playfulness of it all!

And, speaking of play, it reminds me of something my lure collecting friend said between Georgian Bay and Toronto, something along the lines of play being the most evolved of all activities…

Signing off for today with a bit of Buddha wisdom for you on this subject…

The master of the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.
