I remember Wednesday’s sunset like it was yesterday!

May 23, 2019

Wednesday’s sunset at 8:44 p.m., as seen from an alley off West Broadway Ave. and Hemlock St.

Wednesday (May 22nd) saw the perfect late spring evening—mild and with a sky untroubled by wind. Only a few motionless clouds could be seen grazing in the otherwise empty field of light blue.

Looking east toward an old, wood frame car port, back in the day (yesterday at 8:44 p.m.), in the alley southeast of Broadway and Hemlock.

And when the sunset finally arrived—in the minutes just before 9 p.m.—it cast a warm light the colour of old memories over the entire South Granville area.

The present past perfect tense

Remember that goofy, old “ToyMac” sign in the 1100 block of West Broadway, at 8:49 p.m.?

Standing, as I was, on the south side of West Broadway Avenue was like standing within old photographs yellowed with the patina of age.

Someday I’ll look back on this fondly, I thought.

But why wait? The moment was so perfectly packaged to be a good memory that I was already happily reliving it, if you know what I mean. Click the images to enlarge them.

What about that mural of the night sky across the street on top of 1177 West Broadway?
