End of the Season

Labour day has come and gone, the annual Cabbagetown Festival is winding down, the mornings and evenings are drawing in, and the gardens are in their final spectacular throes before the autumn really sets in.

This is the time of year when I get to meet neighbours who I haven’t seen since this time last year, as we realise that this could be one of the last times we’re all likely to enjoy a pleasant weekend. Cabbagetown is transformed into a bustling neighbourhood full of garage sales and people coming to see the craft fair in the park. I suspect that many of the items I see at the garage sales migrate around the area, emerging once a year to be picked up by a new host, and then they quitely settle into basement hibernation until the next Festival.

The Festival is a good opportunity to participate in a small celebration of the upcoming autumnal equinox with a small potluck and roast pig. Twirling a pig for a while with beer and conversation is a fine way to spend a Saturday afternoon, contemplating how meat ends up on my plate.
