The back door at the studio faces the north-most alley, right by the tracks, in the DTES. I had a little set of stairs built from the ground to the loading bay. They don’t stand on their own, and they only cost maybe $60 to make – but they’re really important to the space because, well, purpose built stairs.
Hanging out on the back stoop, a guy zipping by on his bike comes back around to say “hey the other night I found your stairs a couple blocks away, so I brought ’em back.”
This may not seem big in the grand scheme, but neighbours looking out for neighbours is my happy place, no matter how big or small the gesture.
