Signed by author and small note/autograph written to any specified person when purchased.

In the late 1980’s the author resided in Toronto Ontario, where they trained as a modern dancer and thus, also spent a great deal of time sitting in coffee shops, smoking, sketching, pondering and journaling.

Toronto was a very different city at that time. It had a different type of vibrance, it was more affordable and easier to make a living. Although difficult to live as an artist, it seemed that there were always new possibilities, new places to share and perform work around each corner. There was time to sit and ponder, write, smoke (a multitude of affordable cigarettes) and just “be.”

Micha really loved to people watch, and being trained as a modern dancer, was fascinated and interested in the language of the body. They felt that it spoke of where people came from, who they were at the present, who they may be in the future.

The multitudes of cafes offered many a window seat, and from the aquarium view, Micha would write, draw, and imagine (for hours) fuelled on nicotine and caffeine. It was a time without cell phones.

Cable television was too expensive, so entertainment was found in other places.
Even making plans with friends was not so immediate, telephones did not ring in pockets, they rang at home, where the message would be recorded, For many, the message was retrieved only once home, not at work, or on the street waiting for the bus. There was more time, there were fewer emergencies.

So, this is where and when the following body of work is born. A young artist being inspired by some amazing mentors, contemplating and expressing, exploring their spirit through the art of modern dance and the written word
