I was in Tatamagouche this past weekend as part of a leadership team with Margot Metcalfe and Silver Frith for the Ways of Seeing, Photography for the Artist Within Us program. It was my 3rd time as a facilitator for this event and as always, I had a lot of fun. I also found my voice this year in particular, as both an artist and teacher strengthening. The weekend has left me brimming with both spiritual and creative nourishment.

One of the things I enjoy doing during beachwalks is collecting sea glass. In fact it's something my family enjoys doing. There are little jars, dishes and vases around the house containing our beach treasures. Clear, green and beer bottle brown are very common around here, blue is rare, so rare in fact that it is a bit of a family competition when it comes to finding it. Other colours red, pink, orange... are even more rare than blue. I found this piece at the beach in Fernwood, the light caught it in the sand and it looked like a jewel, so I picked it up and held it to the sun dancing on the water and made this image.
