My outdoor writing studio is like Mimi from La Boheme: beautiful but doomed.
Here is the view from a few weeks ago:
Here is a view from earlier today:
They’ve started trimming the trees. Clearing the area.
In the foreground: the fence surrounding my writing studio, which I have come to call The Cage. Strangely comfortable to be fenced in. We’ll leave that discussion for another day. In the background: the sandy / dirt lot used to be the playground at the park.
The strip of green in the far background is the new outdoor hockey park. The surface is finished but the fence is only partially completed – the rest is blocked off with Crime Scene tape. Visually unsettling but I suppose it saves the City money.
They relocated & upgraded the playground, much nicer location. Plus they added shiny new picnic tables.
I could contact someone from the City Parks Department to find out what they plan to do with my outdoor studio, but maybe it’s better if we keep quiet about this, okay??? Shhhh!
