My Journey to My Dream

http://www.friesenpress.com/bookstore/title/119734000014632210
A multi-skilled young man in the performing arts finds himself on a life long quest to live his heart out and follow his passion to become a professional dancer, singer and actor. Along the way he meets life challenges, both personal and professional, yet …

One of my circus pals, Tasos Nikopoulos, as written a memoir style book: MY JOURNEY TO MY DREAM.  Check it out if you’re interesting in the life of a dancer, or a good motivational story.

Fibonacci you crazy bastard….

As seen in the solar system (by no ridiculous coincidence), Earth orbits the Sun 8 times in the same period that Venus orbits the Sun 13 times! Drawing a line between Earth & Venus every week results in a spectacular FIVE side symmetry!!

Lets bring up those Fibonacci numbers again: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34..

So if we imagine planets with Fibonacci orbits, do they create Fibonacci symmetries?!

You bet!! Depicted here is a:

  • 2 sided symmetry (5 orbits x 3 orbits)
  • 3 sided symmetry (8 orbits x 5 orbits)
  • sided symmetry (13 orbits x 8 orbits) - like Earth & Venus
  • sided symmetry (21 orbits x 13 orbits)

I wonder if relationships like this exist somewhere in the universe….

Fibonacci in space.  Freak cool.

Games Night Return to Dempsey Park

dempseypark:

Games Night continue Sept 10, 17, and 24 in Dempsey Park.

End of Summer Newsletter Update has been sent to the mailing list, here it is if you’ve missed it.

Also announces the potential “Pumpkin Parade” for November 1.

I’ll be missing the Sept 10 one, and looks like I’ll be games master for the Sept 24th event.

A group of 25+ protesters outside of John Filion's campaign office today in Willowdale.
Rumor has it that they were hired by either a developer who wants to build in the neighbourhood that John is opposing, or from a rival candidate.  It was shocking how wrong it all was — the signs were generic and non-specific, the chants and sayings were totally irrelevant, and John walked by the group of them and none of them recognized him at all.  It was blatant how wrong it all was to anyone who has experience with the situation, but I guess they are targeting a different audience?
All the signs were loaded into the back of a pick up truck, and it was reported that truck was later seen at a rival candidate’s BBQ party.
Dirty politics in Willowdale.  Ford Nation is weird.
John discusses this in his speech near the 5m mark.

Willowdale Update - Campaign Launch

With the passing of Labour Day it feels as though the summer is coming to a close.  For us, it also means campaign season is officially about to open.  I invite you to join my team and I as we officially open my campaign office on Saturday.  For me, campaigns have always been first and foremost about community and I hope to have many members of our community joining in for this special day.  I look forward to seeing you soon!

 - John

Campaign Launch on Saturday
John’s 2014 Campaign Office is
located at 5580 Yonge Street

 

It’s here!  The launch of John Filion’s 2014 Campaign is this Saturday, September 6 at 1:00 PM.  We invite you to join John and the team at 5580 Yonge Street (next to Shoppers Drug Mart, just south of Finch) to help launch this campaign with the full support of the Willowdale community.  Hot dogs and hamburgers will be served before we hit the streets and start knocking on doors or get on the phones, spreading the word about John’s campaign in the community.

 

This event is a great opportunity to learn more about John’s campaign and what we have planned for the next 7 weeks.  John encourages you to spread the word and bring friends or neighbours with you that might be interested in getting involved.  Our greatest strength will come from large numbers.

 

Prior to the launch Saturday, John will also be doing a joint canvas with John Tory starting at 10 AM.  If you’re interested in joining us before the launch, please e-mail us and meet at the campaign office at 9:15 AM.

 

Please let us know if we can count on your support for opening day, or if you’re available to volunteer at any time during the first week of the campaign.

 

With the official launch, our office hours will be Monday-Friday 1 PM - 9 PM with canvas times at 2 PM and 5:30 PM.  Saturdays are 9 AM - 7 PM (canvas at 10 AM, 1 PM and 4 PM) and Sundays are 11 AM - 6 PM (canvas at 12 PM and 3 PM).  Please feel free to drop by if you can’t make the opening.

 

Also note that there is metered and pay lot parking in front of, and behind, the campaign office.  However, we suggest on weekends, the best bet for free parking would be to park on Blakeley Rd, the cul-du-sac which is accessed from the end of Lorraine Drive to the west of Beecroft Road.  Cross Beecroft and walk in via the east side of Lorraine Drive and Tolman Street.

 

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday!
