Postcard from the edge (of Balconville) © Sharon Boswall (iammacgirl) on Flickr.
Almost the end of July already. Hard to believe how time flies. Looking forward to a vacation even though, as this pic says, it’s definitely gonna be balconville for me this year (otherwise known in the rest of Canada as the holistay or staycation) - and even then, it won’t be until September. Meanwhile, today, I slave at cleaning my little vacation spot in the sky (okay, technically, it’s only the second floor but a girl has to have lofty dreams you know)… just sayin’.

KURIOS Cabinet of Curiosities ©SharonB (iammacgirl) on Flickr.
I went to see KURIOS on May 31st - a few people had said they did not enjoy it so much as some of the previous shows of the Cirque. I went with a little trepidation and came out with a huge smile. Completely different from anything else I have ever seen by the Cirque du Soleil and by far my most favourite of them all - the costumes, the themes, the music (I need that soundtrack) - think turn of the century - strange new inventions, flying machines, electricity, bathyspheres, quirky characters including one that reminded me of a Dalek (no Tardis in sight though) - always something going on beyond the main performer(s) but not so much as to be distracting… and the dancing… I loved the seemingly continual dancing…and the little gadgets circling the edge of the stage (don’t think I didn’t want to steal one or two or all of them because I certainly did). It was absolutely delightful and amazing… and I would go again in a heartbeat just to see that upside down dinner and to satisfy my kuriosity all over again…
