the jumpoff

summertime as a child for me meant trips to bleeker street. cabbage
town. downtown. a lot of time was spent exploring cabbagetown, st. james town, regent park and certain parts of riverdale.
fast forward 12 - 15 years and i'm back again exploring cabbagetown, regent park, st. jamestown and beyond, this time with urban planning on the mind.
not much has changed, revitalization projects excluded and memories still linger of nicky-nicky nine door and insane games of tags (that would be probably be deemed unsafe by any real authority).
but thanks to a two hour journey today, i touched base with some old spaces and new places. and one step at a time, i saw my past, took in the present and had a glimpse of what could be my future.
