Sometimes five minutes is all we need. It's all we need to put everything else in our messy, beautiful lives into perspective.

The National Ballet of Canada left the safe confines of the city of Toronto to venture to Washington D.C. to watch our favourite ballet dancers perform Alice at the Kennedy Center. I glanced uneasily at the carry-ons, envisioning their owners' days and nights spent looking increasingly wrinkled and food-stained.

About eight months ago I felt I needed a bit of spontaneity and adventure in my life so decided to move (temporarily...Mom!) to Spain. Despite my knowledge of delicious food, it turns out I know virtually no Spanish. If this does not surprise you, it sure as hell surprised me.
