    No more construction detour between my morning coffee stop and work!
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I used to go for a walk at lunch every day, a habit I've picked up again in the last four days since I started working at an architectural firm. On my way back to the office I was crossing a street and encountered a tradesman walking back to his job site, playing a harmonica.

    After another block I could hear a carillon in the distance.

    First, I nailed an important presentation today.

    Then, after the day precipitously declined...someone did something nice for me, unexpectedly.

    Turns out it is a digital carillon, which takes away some of the 'magic'. Still, it's nice to step outside and hear pretty music. It makes me think of Christmas for some reason. Maybe because the word carillonneurs reminds me of carollers. The snowy weather adds to the ambiance.

    Since it feels like Christmas I thought I might as well do some shopping today. I know what my dad wants: tickets to a philharmonic orchestra concert. I work about four blocks away from the concert hall so I walked there this afternoon and bought them.

    What made me happy today was taking the elevator to buy the tickets. The box office is in a building called the Calgary Public Building, adjacent to the concert hall. It was built in the late 1920s and features the city's last pair of manned elevators. There is an operator in each elevator car who moves a lever to make the elevator go up or down. He or she also opens and closes the doors: the outer door on the floor itself and the gate in the elevator car. The doors on the first floor are beautiful brass, and so too are most of the trim inside the cars, the push-buttons and levers, and the dial-type floor indicators.

    I've been in this building several times and been on the elevators several times. Mostly I go to the second floor, to go to the orchestra box office. In the past I've looked around for stairs because I feel a little lazy for taking an elevator up and down only one measly floor.

    Today, after having said hello to the operator and giving her my destination, I said to her "I would take the stairs but I don't know where they are."
    She said, "Do you work in the building?"
    "No," of course.
    "Well then you can't get to them!" she exclaimed. "You have to take the elevator."
    In the time we had exchanged these few words we had already whirred up to the second floor and the operator had stopped the car and opened the doors. I was stepping out of the car as I explained "I just feel kind of silly about taking an elevator up one floor. I've looked around for them before, and I never could find them.
    There's a reception desk just outside the elevators, and the receptionist interjected, "What's he looking for?"
    "The stairs," the operator said.
    "Oh, you can't get to the stairs," she told me. "After the renos to the building the access to the stairs was blocked off. You'd have to walk way across the building to find them."
    "Think of it this way," said the operator. "The building is a historic site, and the elevators are 83 years old: enjoy!"

    So I did.
