This Calls For A Celebration

Tomorrow marks the first day of spring (which starts at 00:07 UTC, 8:07 tonight here in Toronto)... officially anyway. Who knows what the pollution enraged weather will actually bring us. The vernal equinox means different things to different people, but the consensus is- it's time to shake off the lethargy of winter and celebrate. Here are a few ideas, in case the recent frigid winds had you fooled and you neglected to make plans:

Get out your djembe and thunder your way into the new season with some tribal beats. Drummers in Exile have a circle happening tonight, Tuesday March 20th, 2007 at The Dance Cave (upstairs from Lee's Palace). 529 Bloor Street West. 8pm - midnight. 19 and up. No Cover!

Enrich yourself with a synchronized NYC/TO art exhibit, Lady Day Lord Night:
Vernal Equinox
. Wednesday, March 21, 2007. The Toronto half is taking place at Art Metropole from 6pm - 10 pm, and features Andrew Zealley's installation named Portal. You'll receive an audio cleansing as you enter the exhibit, whatever that means (guess you'll have to go and find out, eh?) The New York half features Chrysanne Stathacos' Shake Your Mind, which is showing at Printed Matter, March 21, 2007 from 5pm -7pm.

Get your class on at Colborne Lodge in High Park, with their Spring Equinox Evening Tour. Wednesday, March 21, 2007 from 7pm - 8:30pm. Visit the candle lit lodge and enjoy music inspired by spring, featuring the Taffanel Wind Ensemble. Light 19th century refreshments will be served (it's either damn fine wine or moldy crumpets).
Price - $15. Pre-registration and pre-payment required. For more information call: 416-392-6916. 18 and up.

Join holistic psychotherapist Mary Marzo as she presents her Goddess Alive 8 Point Wheel of Celebration workshop at WonderWorks this Wednesday, March 21, from 7pm - 9:30pm. $25. Regenerate your spirit and prepare your consciousness for an awakening. These workshops fill up quick, apparently, so if interested contact Mary ASAP at (416) 424-2086 or email mm@goddesshealing.com. Maybe there's a spot left!

One last note: if you're in the dog house with your partner, there's no better non-excuse to send flowers than the vernal equinox. It's spring, after all! Check out your local florist's selection.
