"When we started this lockdown, I found myself staring out my fourth-storey window. A lot. How is everybody in Toronto doing? Dog owners were still being pulled up and down sidewalks, but everyone else stopped moving … that is, until Amazon delivered the trampolines! Almost overnight my West End neighbourhood sprung to life with little heads appearing over fence tops. At one point, I saw three kids, several blocks apart, jumping in their backyards. Boing, Boing, Boing! So here we are, it’s Spring again and I’m back at my window watching the crocuses and the kids pop up. Look for them in your neighbourhood!"
