The Weight of Memories

Yesterday I sat on the hillside and watched the leaves fly off the trees. I don’t think I have ever done that before. Each year the leaves are on the trees, looking stunning in their fall splendour, and then they are on the ground. And it’s all over for another year. But I have never made the time to actually witness this magnificent transformation. … Read More The Weight of Memories

Walls of resistance & other annoyances

I have successfully liberated my art! Five small pieces of my art, each with their own little story, each with a part of me embedded, have been flung out into the world. They disappeared, tucked safely inside their modestly decorated envelope, into a bright red Canada Post mailbox. They’re truly gone, left home forever, having their own little postcard adventures, flying off to places … Read More Walls of resistance & other annoyances
