Under the underpass

The cat was sick, a crouched peeing everywhere, on the beds, the couch, visibly uncomfortable.

An emergency run to the vet happened at mid day. All protocols in effect: cat delivered to door of vet with mask on, no entry for humans.

Time to kill.

The vet is at that funny intersection where Cherry St turns into Sumach and Adelaide turns into a ramp onto the expressway. A bit of a wasteland of streetcar tracks and highways. There’s talk of development (when is there not) and the vet location is even supposed to be a subway station eventually when they build that new line they’re always promising.

Wandering aimlessly I noticed a sign – a farmers market I’d never heard about. Who doesn’t love a good farmer’s market?

It wasn’t Thursday, it was Friday, but I had time to kill so I figured might as well wander down the block to “Underpass Park” a skate park plus underneath the expressway – the ultimate in urban.

And oh my goodness, I didn’t remember THIS much art…

A feast for the eyes – so many different styles, ideas, cultures, mark makings… What a way to make the ugly spaces beautiful.
