I’ve been coming here and feeding off it’s vibrations for 20 years. It is, after all, my birth place, hometown, and the Mother that has given me life.
I have spent years wandering its streets. Sometimes by foot, by bike, by TTC or by car. I have grown with this city literally from rags – standing outside in the blistering freezing cold with wet feet feeding off bags of day old donuts trying to figure out where to go with (maybe) a dollar in my pocket, to cruising around the city in my own vehicle, with two amazing Siberian Huskies hanging their heads out the window and thousands of dollars worth of equipment packed in the trunk accompanied with wads of cash in my wallet and bank accounts and nothing but progress and good fortune on my mind that has manifested itself in ink on my daily itenerary.
This is my Toronto. This is how I spent my time here. I am still not where I want to be in life, as I am still growing, but without a doubt, this city has been the driving force behind many of dreams.
