I took this photo on a walk to Trinity Bellwoods on Oct. 1st, which happened to be a warm, hazy day. Didn’t think much of it at time but as I sit here today archiving photos and hibernating from the extreme cold of the polar vortex, it seems rather poignant.
Poem in the photo: Joyce Sidman, “Into the Mud” from Song of the Water Boatman & Other Pond Poems:
Sunslant low,chill seeps into blackwater. No more days of bugsand basking. Last breath, last sightof light and down I go, into the mud. Everyyear, here, I sink and settle, shuttered like ashed.  Inside, my eyes close, my heart slowsto its winter rhythm.  Goodbye, good-bye! Remember the warmth. Remember the quickness.Remember me.Remember.
And then just to top it off, I found a video of the painting being done in the park earlier in the summer.

Sun
slant low,
chill seeps into black
water. No more days of bugs
and basking. Last breath, last sight
of light and down I go, into the mud. Every
year, here, I sink and settle, shuttered like a
shed.  Inside, my eyes close, my heart slows
to its winter rhythm.  Goodbye, good-
bye! Remember the warmth.
Remember the quickness.
Remember me.
Remember.

Before the ice storm came and then the crazy-cold temps descended upon us it was actually quite beautiful out there.
