Natural Beauty

Grateful to a generous donor who makes it possible to have "Natural Beauty" (sunset at Jordan Harbourside, Niagara) hanging in the Provincial Office, Ontario-Kentucky Province of the Resurrectionists in Waterloo, ON, Canada.

Down by the river side

With strength, grace and thriving by the river side...a symbol of the amazing spirit of life, within and all around us. Spring opens my eyes to the wonderment of life re-emerging after winter's slumber.

'Interconnected': 6 Degrees (or less) of Separation

Often I am reminded of the many unsuspected ways we are interconnected, at times when I least expect it--funerals, weddings, meeting guests at the Gallery. Often, in times of tragedy, the ties that draw us together are welcomed and necessary, and sadly with recent events in Humboldt, Saskatchewan, we are profoundly reminded of this across Canada, even the world. I am thankful for all those who are there when I need them, when I hardly realize we are even connected.

When I take time to observe ways of nature, I realize that "inter-connectedness" is nothing novel!

Spring is coming!

I know March is still a winter month, yet all the signs are around us that spring is around the corner...robins are here, finches are courting and our hamamelis is blooming!

Live music is healing

Attended a jazz session in Feb at the Jazz Room (Huether Hotel, Waterloo) featuring Tim Moher and friends (octet). I underestimate the power of live music to soothe the soul and bring healing energy to the spirit. For more, go to my facebook page.

IN THE MIDST OF WINTER

While most of Canada is in the midst of a deep freeze in Jan 2018, I turn to the memory of warmer days in 2017. I took this beauty (among several others) at the garden of Angela Granic in Waterloo. The smiling dahlia exudes sunshine and warmth, so I call it 'Sun Dahlia'.
