Step Back, Pause, and Recharge

I moved to Toronto in 2012, and I didn’t know anyone in the city.

It seemed really hectic.

So I was looking for a place where I could step back, pause, and recharge.

I found the Spadina Museum House and Gardens on a list of historic Toronto sites.

They have a very private garden. It’s a very intimate space. Not crowded or far away.

One spring, I came here to see the cherry blossoms.

I just happened to fall asleep.

The wind had blown the petals off the trees, and I woke up covered in cherry blossoms!
