We are nearing the end of this year; the days shorten, the shadows lengthen, and it’s cold. On probably my last incline skate of the year, I made my way slowly around Stanley Park one afternoon in early December, trying to avoid slipping and falling on the damp pavement; this time of year the sun doesn’t rise high enough to dry out the path surface on the north and west sides of the park. Luckily, my wheels are soft and so I didn’t slip too much.
In the small park at the foot of Davie Street this sculptural installation made me smile; it’s “Hysterical Laughter” by the Chinese artist Yue Minjun. Read more about the art here.
