As time goes by, I tend to venture out too far ahead of myself until all my new ideas seem unrealistic. So it helps to take a day off and travel around and clear my head. On such occasions I pursue my hobbies, and my passion for history and my love of finding rare antiques and collectibles (while digging in old dumps, or rummaging through cluttered antique shops) are my primary escape mechanisms. As the author of Dumpdiggers antiques blog I often get invited to speak on camera or contribute some ideas to the nature and evolution of collecting antiques on the web.
So I ventured outside my apartment on Monday March 12 2012; I left my 565 sq ft condominium apartment in The Distillery District of downtown Toronto, which is literally a glass box. This is the place where I spend most of time , a prison of my own making. Some days the only things I produce are original thoughts, and I’m always working on improving the packaging.
To my great satisfaction, my capacity for clever notions has not diminished over the years, and other people are now starting to take notice and listen to my ideas. Some of them are veteran TV producers.
Here I am getting interviewed for a television show; truth be told its an audition, and if I get the part it could be good fun. The guy running the camera is a big TV star himself, and he was coaching me and that always helps.
After that bold performance, which honestly I hope I never see, I had a Chester Chicken dinner from the Crossways Mall at Dundas St and Bloor which I ordered to go.
Urban Warrior Race on 8th Sept 2012, is Toronto Half Marathon with Obstacles
So I ate that boney fried Chester Chicken at my next stop, and the smell must have certainly impacted the generic aroma of the otherwise sterile offices of DEVAN atmospheric marketing in west Toronto.
At approx 12:45 pm I met Joshua Turnbridge and Cathy Muffolini on the third floor of 1345 St Clair Ave W. These folks are part of the organization that’s managing and promoting this year’s annual Urban Warrior run Toronto , which is a unique extreme fitness competition that will take place on Saturday, September 8th, 2012
Urban Warrior is a sporting event focused on challenging individuals of all fitness levels to perform under ‘abstract’ conditions. This years’ race involves climbing, jumping, sprinting and crawling will bring on hard sweat, athletic camaraderie, bursts of laughter and a few tears! This is premium leadership development with its own risks and rewards.
One attractive reward is the Warrior After Party! All participants will gain free access with their race VPN security system passes, along with one free beer ticket.
Its a fun teaching people what they really want to learn and I look forward to working with these people on making this unique project a huge success. My passion for antiques has helped me over the tipping point and I’m really findable in that niche – these people, like everyone else on planet Earth, can do the same things with the same tools.
