I love being in Toronto. It’s on the other side of the Great Lakes Watershed from Elkhart and Chicago.
In addition to being the most multicultural city on the planet, there is a lot of activism here. In addition to Reserve Land, Toronto is a hub for the ongoing #idlenomore indigenous initiated movement to resist ongoing environmental racism.
I am here for Christian Peacemaker Teams meetings. There is a warm spell and so I bike all over the city, using a cycle from the Aboriginal Justice Team house.
Whenever I travel, I check out the Capoeira academy there. Below is a sign from the academy, which is a salute of health and wellbeing that we give to one another at the beginning and ending of the class. It is a greeting shared for generations, and evokes the energy we want to share with the world. Thanks for sharing with me in my life journey, salve! to you.
