After such a ‘magical’ afternoon, painting…it was over to Nina Saini’s Hear’s My Soul Cafe for wine and celebration. A gathering space in the Orange Lofts, this little cafe must be enjoyed by all! This is a spirit-filled and ‘happening’ place. Problems get resolved at Hear’s My Soul. Inspiration happens at Hear’s My Soul! Much connecting happens as a person looks out onto one of the coolest intersections of the city…people are warm and funny. The wine is good. The food is exquisite. I settled in and relaxed with Wendy Lees, grateful for the friendship and conversation.
From the menu, I selected, Smoked meat, garlic aoili, grilled zucchini and red peppers, red onion, arugula and aged white cheddar PANINI! Yummers…and Woodbridge Cabernet-Sauvignon 2012 as an accompaniment. Fantastic!
I really enjoy attending THE FIRSTS of things going on in our city, and just happened to hit this event last evening. Recently I attended the first of the full moon walks accompanied by cellist, Morag Northey, down in Fish Creek Park. This particular intimate gathering of folk meant bringing out the paint, pencils and markers! I recognized Sarah-Joy from Nikki Reimer’s Calgary reading from sic ages ago, so a lovely thing to reconnect. On Hear’s My Soul Facebook page, the gathering is advertised this way. Something else for creatives in Calgary to keep in mind.
