Carry Me Home

So, here I am again. I was listening to Hey Rosetta today, their song “Carry Me Home” hits home this year as I am not home…again, like I have been for about 20 years but what makes this year different is that last year…I was home and I actually went to see Hey Rosetta play and heard them sing that song. I have begun to realize though, that the year at home was not a loss, it was a gain. My children and I have even stronger connections than I could have hoped for. Enjoy, remember that being home is a gift you give yourself and, as always, keep making art!

St. John’s, Newfoundland and the Avalon Peninsula were hit by a major winter storm that brought 52 centimetres of snow and winds up to 121 kilometres per hour (that is hurricane force for the interested reader!).  These pics show what greeted me, my husband and two kids when we opened the front door at about 8 am January 11.   It actually was another foot higher by noon when we ventured outside to start shovelling and snow blowing the snow from our driveway.  After three and a half hours of grueling work ( and play for the kids), we came in looking forward to a hot meal and were faced with a power outage.  We were equipped with a good emergency kit though and were still able to make a great meal and had hot chocolate and tea to finish it off.  As we have electric heat, our house started to get pretty cold by about 830pm and we were all in bed by 930pm to stay warm.  We slept like logs!  Hope you enjoy the pictures and keep warm out there!

Some of you may remember a blogger and artist names Lance Weisser.  He is an amazingly talents watercolour artist and an inspiration to me.  He has not blogged since May of 2012 now and although I have searched for him, I can not find him.  I know others have looked for Lance as well.  His blog is called weisserwatercolours.wordpress.com and he is a wonderful gentleman.  This cardinal, completed with watercolour pencil now belongs to my mother but when I look at it, I think of Lance.   Don’t forget the people who touch your life, even for a moment, as they can have a long-lasting effect on your heart and soul.  Value them deeply for you never know when they may just disappear.  Enjoy and keep making art!

After a stormy winter’s walk through a whimsical winter wonderland, this is certainly a welcome sight!  Beyond this door you find just what you have been looking for…..a warm heart, a warm smile, a warm hand to hold and the people you love.  I hope you are all heading home for the holidays, whether it be only in your heart or for real!  Enjoy, happy travels and keep making art!
