Traveled today for the first time in 4 months and it felt weird. The airport seemed foreign. I even forgot you can only bring 10oz liquid bottles or they take them away. Oops. But I like Canada a lot and Toronto is a terrific city. I have made a number of films here and, as exercise while filming, I would ride a bike for hours on the miles of gorgeous bike trails that take you through parks and along rivers. The city has great restaurants, too, but I won’t be able to try any. I’m here to make a speech for which I am paid. I will talk about my life and what it has taught me and how my non-profit work grows out of what I have seen and experienced. I don’t view the work my organizations do as “charity” but rather as instruments of social change. Next week, on my day off, I will do the same thing in Montreal.
While I am here, Michael Rudd (you saw his photo in the Broadway Cares skit holding Tulea) is keeping Tulea which is reassuring to me.
See you next time.Tags: appearance, Canada, Montreal, Toronto
