Yesterday I did lunch with a friend from Montréal and we then went to the AGO – Art Gallery of Ontario to take in the recently opened Alex Colville show.  I paused and actually lost tears on seeing this masterpiece.  I have always liked his works and was not familiar with this piece.  This masterpiece manages to perfectly encapsulate the utter abandon one experiences when focussed in flying dreams.  For me the moment was truly rhapsodic.
