Across the road

It is a busy time here in Gordoland. Lots of reprints, collages, dvd and designs, all to prepare Others for Christmas. It is starting to get a little more under control and I find myself thinking and preparing... I can start to see across the road.

I made this image on my way to Tatamagouche recently.

I feel like I am at a place where I can look ahead and travel a new road.

I have been quietly making an occasional Blog since May and keeping it to myself, not sure why, just being shy. Well, I got my friend Rob hooked and it has encouraged me to share. I hope to post more frequently, so stay tuned...


I recently was one of 3 leaders of a photographic course at the Tatamagouche Centre in Tatamagouche, N.S. . It was a very enriching experience for me, it was my 1st time acting as a facilitator and I thank Margot and Frith for their support and the gifts they shared at this event. I also want to thank all who participated and shared some of themselves with the group. We are offering the program again next year, I am already looking forward to it!Here are few images taken in and near Tatamagouche. More will come.

Saved from the blade

I was clearing some fallen apples from under the tree before

mowing the lawn and found this little toad.

I put him (or her, I did'nt check) in an empty fishbowl and took

the kids for a walk to "far" (see previous post) to set our friend free.

Eye and Heart

"In whatever one does,

there must be a relationship between the eye and the heart,

With the one eye that is closed, one looks within,

with the other eye that is open, one looks without."

Science & Spirit: ART

Science & Spirit:

"Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better.

-Andre Gide

The true work of art is but a shadow of the divine perfection.


Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.

-Pablo Picasso

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

-Scott Adams

He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.

-St. Francis of Assisi

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.

-Oscar Wilde

Without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.

-George Bernard Shaw

Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one.

-Stella Adler

There are more valid facts and details in works of art than there are in history books.

-Charlie Chaplin

Art is making something out of nothing and selling it.

-Frank Zappa "

Hope is a choice

Hope is not a feeling; it is a decision. And the decision for hope is based upon what you believe at the deepest levels - what your most basic convictions are about the world and what the future holds - all based upon your faith. You choose hope, not as a naïve wish, but as a choice, with your eyes wide open to the reality of the world -

A Walk to Far

Ben And I went for a walk the other day, he said it was a walk to "far".
So I asked him, where is "far" and when do we know that we have gone to "far"?
He told me; "close your eyes and you will see".
