It was raining, so there were only about maybe fifty of us. Okay, and another fifty who came to watch. And this being Montreal, people kept arriving late and joining the fray. Amazingly the brawl went on till about 7:30 when someone applauded and everyone else applauded and that was that.
The weather could barely have been worse, but the spirit of the people who did come was tremendous. What fun! Hunter had a blast -- he was in the thick of it until the very end.
Next time I'm involved in something like this, for sure we need a rain date. I suspect the turnout would have been much, much better if not for the rain, which really sends people heading for home even if they stuck a pillow in their bag in the morning.
I broke my glasses! Darn it. Ah well, art requires some sacrifice.
I can't wait to see the pictures. There were maybe a dozen or two people there with cameras, plus press.
Really we need to do something like this in better weather, but someone else will have to instigate it...

You were there? I couldn't find you! I thought you had chickened out. ;-)
You came up with the same conclusions as I did to make it better next time... if there's ever a next time. Il y a de la beauté dans l'éphémère!
